Work at Perth Airport’s Terminal terminal has been completed to make it a dual domestic-international operation.
Terminal 3 is now be home to Australia’s newest international terminal which will host all Qantas international services.
To enable international services from the T3/T4 precinct, Perth Airport and Qantas have undertaken significant works to produce new and improved facilities, including a new international transit terminal.
The new integrated terminal will swing between domestic and international operations which provides flexibility and a seamless journey for passengers who are transiting from international to a regional destination.
The new international wing features a large outdoor deck with alfresco seating, a streamlined immigration and customs area to enable a faster transfer experience, additional food and beverage outlets, and a new Duty Free store.
As part of the works, unique dining concepts have also been developed which will contribute to the customer experience and provide passengers a last taste of Western Australia.
Perth Airport CEO, Kevin Brown, said, “This really is a moment in history for Perth Airport and for Western Australia.
“It’s incredibly important that we make a great first impression on visitors to our state and also give them a warm farewell when they leave.
“Teams have been working almost around the clock to ensure that (the) launch goes smoothly, and that we continue set a high standard for all international flights to and from bother our international terminals.
“Security systems have been tested and re-tested, shelves stocked in the Aelia duty free outlets, and, most importantly, the beers have been chilled in the Blackwood bar and bistro.
“I’m really proud of the work our team and our partners have done in making this happen in such a short space of time – and I’m sure Western Australians will be proud too.”
