Adelaide Airport Facilities: More than Just Car Hire

Adelaide airport is situated in West Beach, South Australia and is a short 10 minute drive from Adelaide city centre which makes driving particularly convenient and means that car hire is a requirement for many visitors. The airport is designed to be able to process 3,000 passengers every hour and surprisingly, with such a high capacity it has only one terminal that serves both domestic and international roles.

With only one terminal, finding your way around couldn't be easier and the airport has a host of facilities for the ongoing traveller. Even in the best laid out airports finding your way around can be rather daunting so there are friendly Airport Ambassadors on hand in the check in and arrivals halls. Public transport is readily available from outside the main terminal and a public bus service connects the airport directly with Adelaide City Centre and the northern and eastern city suburbs.

If you are using car rental facilities, car rental desks are all located on the ground floor and are adjacent to the baggage reclaim as well as having convenient drop off and collection points there is also ample parking in both short and long term car parks and a regular, free shuttle bus service connects the long term car park between the hours of 0430 and 2320 every day. The journey takes no more than ten minutes each way.

Adelaide Airport prides itself on quality of services it offers travellers. The entire passenger terminal provides internet access via free WiFi for those with laptops and tablet devices of their own and there is also an internet kiosk with 10 self service terminals for those travelling without their own hardware.
