Perth Airport is made up of 4 terminals, offering both international and domestic flights. It’s the 4th busiest airport in Australia, and offers flights from as far afield as South Africa, Dubai and Abu Dhabi (amongst others). Terminal 1 caters for international flights, with the established domestic terminals are Terminals 3 and 4. The newest domestic terminal is just south of Terminal 1 and is now known as Terminal 2.
Terminal 1 caters for international flights, and has a huge range of cafes, shops and facilities on offer (although it is currently going through some renovation so not every facility will be currently open). The area is undergoing a total transformation to increase and upgrade the range of retail and dining outlets. Coming soon are a range of stores such as Australian Way, Pure Merino, Rip Curl and Hungry Jacks. For now you can grab a coffee at The Dome, a beer at Mattress Blue Bar or a pizza at Eagle Boys.
For shopping, there is Newslink and Hub Convenience, not to mention JR Duty Free. Now, you can even order your duty-free online, to be picked up before you depart or as soon as you arrive in Perth.
Terminal 2 is the modern, sleek new domestic flight terminal. Plenty of space for duty-free shopping and a number of places to grab a drink before catching your flight. Pop in to visit Four Alls Brewhouse, The Coffee Club, Hudson’s Coffee or Subway. For shopping there is Relay and Hub Convenience. Terminals 3 and 4 also offer a range of shops and eateries.
Perth Airport Transformation
Perth Airport is at the very early stages of a total, large-scale regeneration project. All commercial services are being rehoused under one precinct, to be known as Airport Central. A lot of work has already gone into this project, but there is also a whole lot more to be done.
There are a number of elements planned for the new look Perth airport, scheduled to be built gradually over the next 30 years, so as to reduce impact on service users:
- New international pier at Terminal 1.
- Construction of a new runway.
- Further expansion of Terminal 2.
The new international pier at Terminal 1 will truly offer a world-class travelling experience for those who pass through the new look Perth Airport. At over 20,000 square metres, the International Pier will be suitable for the ever growing numbers of customers, with a huge increase in retail options and new departure lounges that board directly onto aircraft.
There will also be significant work down to increase parking to be able to take the strain of a growing international airport. The current car parks will be added to and replaced by multi-storey carparks, hoping to cater for up to 35,000 vehicles by the year 2034.
There will also be a track for an automated train to move above ground connecting all the different terminals, easily and efficiently, known as the Automated People Mover (ATM).
These changes will all serve to maintain and improve the already stellar reputation of Perth Airport.
