Airports in South Australia

Adelaide Airport (ADL)


One of the busiest airports in Australia, Adelaide Airport serves roughly seven million passengers each year. A new international terminal, opened in 2005, has won several awards, both in Australia and internationally.

With a range of shops and restaurants and state-of-the-art facilities, Adelaide Airport is also getting rave reviews from passengers, who arrive on flights from around Australia, as well as international destinations in Asia and the Pacific like Singapore, Hong Kong, and Bali. The airport is continually upgrading, and new road networks and parking facilities are currently under construction.


The airport is situated four miles (6km) west of Adelaide.

Getting to the city

A public bus service called JetBus picks up passengers from the bus stop on the left side of the plaza as one exits the terminal. A number of door-to-door shuttle buses are also available at this bus stop.
