Melbourne Airport poised to spread its wings
December 8, 2011
MELBOURNE Airport is set to expand, with plans to build a $300 million passenger terminal and improve freeway access.
Just days after Sydney Airport announced plans to shuffle airlines between existing terminals by 2019, Melbourne is gearing up to have a new interconnected domestic terminal running by mid-2014.
Melbourne's new Terminal Four building will be built to the south of the existing T3 building used by Virgin Australia.
The development is designed to maintain a key advantage over Sydney Airport by having all terminals connected under one roof, allowing easy movement between airlines for domestic and international flights. The Melbourne redevelopment will include a new multi-level car park, widened roads, new baggage facilities and several extra plane gates.
