More information about Sydney Airport

Only about 9 km or 5 miles from Sydney, Sydney airport is very conveniently located. The airport has a good subway connection, the so-called Airport Link connects it to the city and its suburbs. At peak times trains run every 10 minutes with an average journey time of 13 minutes to the city centre. There are stations in all three terminals. In addition, public buses also operate along with private buses, shuttle buses and taxis. The airport can be reached by car from Sydney city centre in 30 minutes. Please note that some of the motorways in Sydney are toll roads.

Although the airport is the largest on the continent, it only covers an area of about 900 hectares, which in international comparison is rather small. In 2002, the Australian government sold the airport and the new operator, the Sydney Airport Corporation Limited, has been planning extensive building work to develop the airport. The measures have been calculated to take 20 years. Air traffic is handled in three runways and three terminals. Terminal 1 is used for international flights, Terminal 2 for domestic air traffic, while Terminal 3 has been reserved exclusively for the largest Australian airline, Qantas.
