What To Do On A 10hr Transit @ Adelaide Airport SA

Fri Dec 12, 2003 6:52 pm

Hi everyone

I need to borrow your knowledge regarding Adelaide Airport.

I will be arriving in Adelaide at 2200hrs from Sydney early January 2004. I will then catch a GA flight to CGK the next morning at 0805 hrs. I assume that the check-in time would open 3 hrs before my GA flight, therefore check-in time for my GA flight open at 5:05am. Therefore I've got 7hours of nothing to do.

What I would like to know are:
1. Is Adelaide Airport open 24 hours? Any closing time? If it is open 24hrs that means that I can rest inside the terminal.
2. Any Hotel or motel nearby the airport or in the airport?
3. website for the airport?


I think that will do. Please if someone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Cheers

There are a couplea of motels near the airprt, but they are nothing special. You can check one of them out at http://www.adelaideairportmotel.com.au. There wont be much happening at the airport given the amount of movements in and out so best to find somewhere to stay. The motel linked has a free shuttle bus to/from the airport.

The Adelaide Airport website can be found at http://www.aal.com.au

Cheers

I do not want something special anyhow, it'll be expensive, just as long as I can get some shelter. I reckon the adelaide airport motel is more than enough for me. Thanks for the info Melflyer. Much appreciate it.

Cheers

No Adelaide Airport is not open 24 hours. Curfew time is 23:00 hours and until 05:00 absolutely nothing happens bar the odd RFDS PC-12 on a medical emergency or Rescue 1 chopper. BTW what is CGK?

That is the 3-letter code for the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, situated in the area called Cengkareng. And hence the code CGK.
