Adelaide Airport Information

General Airport Information Adelaide Airport is the primary airport of Adelaide in South Australia. In the rankings of the busiest airports in Australia, Adelaide ranks fifth on that list. It has serviced more than 7 million passengers in the year to June 30th, 2013. The Airport is located right next to West Beach which is around 3.7 miles (6km) to the main city center's west. Adelaide Airport is privately managed by Adelaide Airport Limited which has a long term deal with the Commonwealth Government since 1998. History In 1921, Adelaide Airport started off as an aerodrome on 24 hectares of land near Hendon. This small facility was used for a mail service between Sydney and Adelaide. The infrastructure of the aerodrome had to be stepped up due to the growth in Adelaide’s aviation needs, which led to the construction of the Parafield Airport starting in 1927. As demand increased over the years, the airport had to be relocated to West Torrens (the area is also now known as West Beach), where construction began on a much larger facility. The first flight from the new location was in 1954. Adelaide Airport became an international airport in 1982 and was later transformed into a dual-use terminal for both international and domestic flights. This facility cost $260 million and was opened in late 2005. The terminal was awarded the Capital City Airport of the Year by the Australian Aviation Industry Awards in 2006. As of 2011 the airport started a five year $100 million development plan to improve facilities, including new aerobridges and extending the concourse.
