Perth International Airport

Perth International Airport (PER)


Nestled on the outskirts of Perth in Western Australia, Perth Airport has a decent range of passenger facilities and amenities. The domestic terminals are slightly closer to central Perth, and the international terminal a few miles further out of town.

The airport is modestly sized, and has been criticised for being slightly run-down. In recent years, Perth Airport has seen an increase in passenger flow, so if you're flying at peak times, expect queues and plan accordingly.


The airport is located seven miles (12km) from Perth's city centre.
