How much did the Adelaide Airport upgrade cost?

How much would it cost to get Perth Airport to their ultimate development?

Low-cost airline makes WA deal

http://www.thewest.com.au/default.as...ontentID=73237

An international low-cost airline will start direct flights into Western Australia from Kuala Lumpur in November.

A new deal between AirAsia X, Tourism WA and Westralia Airports Corporation could inject nearly $100 million into the Western Australian economy in the service’s first year, Tourism Minister Sheila McHale said this morning.

“The introduction of direct flights between Kuala Lumpur to Perth should see visitor numbers and spending increase significantly as holiday-makers take advantage of low prices,” Ms McHale said.

“Malaysia is already one of WA’s top tourism markets, with nearly 40,000 visitors every year spending $157 million.

“With AirAsia X having the broadest low-cost carrier route network in South East Asia and China, the airline is expected to bring an additional 40,000 international visitors to WA in the first year.

“Next year, AirAsia X will start direct flights between London and Kuala Lumpur which will further boost the number of United Kingdom visitors - our biggest international market - to WA.”

The Minister said low-cost carriers had historically been successful in boosting tourism by offering competitive fares and attracting visitors who had not travelled widely before.

AirAsia X chief executive officer Azran Osman Rani said AirAsia X services to WA would start on November 2, initially with six flights a week, increasing to daily services in March 2009.

“AirAsia X will feed passengers from its extensive network into Perth, effectively creating a low-cost link from South East Asia and China to WA,” Mr Rani said.

“In 2007, we carried 18.5 million passengers around our network of 90 routes across South East Asia and China.”

Westralia Airports Corporation chief executive officer Brad Geatches said the arrival of AirAsia X would be a profitable win for the State’s tourism industry.

“Low-cost carriers such as AirAsia X make up an increasingly important element of global tourism transportation infrastructure,” Mr Geatches said.

“Perth is AirAsia X’s second destination to Australia and presents an opportunity for Perth Airport to become a major hub for low-cost carriers.

“Our recently announced $1 billion plan to consolidate the International and Domestic Terminals means we will be well-placed to meet the growing demand from people travelling through Perth.”

I saw that! Does it need approval from the federal minister Anthony Albanese? (Transport and infrastructure minister) How long will it take to build? LOOKS GREAT!

Interesting PDF, but the render on the front cover really surprised me.

Look familiar?





Hopefully it's just a concept render. Even the navigation signs & screens look like they were taken from Adelaide.



Why are airports so monotonously identical?

I wonder if the concepts renders are familiar because the architects are the same? It would make sense that after the success of Adelaide's new terminal, WA Airport Corp. would use the same firm for the design of their terminal. Adelaide's terminal was designed by Hassell. They also did Sydney's domestic airport prior to the Olympics.

I think "familiar" is too nice, more like a cheap rip off. Fair enough, one render isn't much to judge from, but it's not a promising first sign.

Don't all Qantas terminals look like that?

Qantas and Skywest will be the main users of the new terminal.

Not that I've noticed. At least, not Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra domestic. (Then again, none of them are as new)

Adelaide has a single terminal. Behind the photographer of the photo I posted is the Virgin domestic check-in and a few smaller airlines (Rex, etc). It's basically a mirror image.

I guess I've just got some romantic notion that each Airport should be a unique representation of the city. Maybe if it were an International terminal they'd invest more effort.

I tend to agree with you - Airports should be different.

Oh well, you guys should consider it a compliment

For the record that photographer was me and whilst I agree with you that airports should look different and that the render looks inspired by Adelaide, T1 is not innocent either:

That just makes me more annoyed. When was that Sydney terminal opened? 2000?

You would think Qantas would want to avoid every location feeling identical, because why else would you fly away?

When it comes to domestic terminals I don't think any of the airlines care. It is more like a commuter service where you are marketing a brand. Virigin for example will always use excessive red. Jetstar uses silver/orange. Tiger uses orange. So the uniform design makes sense.

Where a company's put effort in would be their international terminals, specifically their lounges for the high paying, high profit upper class fliers.

I am not 100% sure on this but I think T2 (the former Ansett & then Olympic sponsor) is from 1999?
T3, the Qantas terminal is from the 1990s, but both terminals have been refitted since then.
