The new international terminal will be taking off in September 2016.
Perhaps one of the most exciting features to Canberra Airport’s AirVolution and to the city of Canberra is the new international terminal.
International facilities will include customs, immigration and quarantine facilities, plus dedicated transit lounges, baggage screening, processing and collecting points, money exchanges and duty free retail.
In a clever and flexible design move, the terminal’s departure lounges and aerobridges will be capable of switching from a domestic function to an international gate. Initially two gates of the existing 14 boarding gates will be dedicated for international flights with provisions for boarding gates to be increased to 20.
‘Going international’ is not only a benefit for the people of Canberra but for the entire region. From as far north as Wollongong to as far south as Albury, people will be able to enjoy the convenience of international flights right here in Canberra without the need to go through Sydney.
