Great stops at the Adelaide Airport

Cons: -

(Guest Review by obiwan61) Adelaide boasts a modern, clean, spaced-out (yet compact) airport. The terminals are well sized for the crowds. Excellent coffee is available (I recommend the Flat White!). There is an unusual donut shop selling Pineapple iced donuts, etc. - which is a great sugar-infused novelty. The lounges are spacious. This airport is one of the few where when you enter you smile. The large, clean, many shopped experience puts a smile on your face. One of my favorite airports in the world.

Adelaide Airport Review

by web-administrator (October, 2014)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) The only thing wrong with this airport is that you can't sleep there because it closes at night. Other than that, it is so easy to navigate, a few good food options, simple shopping and only very occasional queues for security.

(GUEST) Security screening is a nightmare due to time it takes to pass through. 45 minute waits to get through. Lines snake through terminal areas with 1,000's of customers in them. Intolerable situation. Past security screening the airport facilities are more like a sporting arenas than a contemporary airport. International travel facilities are non existent and more like an after thought.

new airport of discomfort

Where: Landside and Airside

Adelaide is my "home town airport" so I go through there quite a bit. I would not recommend anyone to stay there over night. As you read already, it shuts down for a few hours every night and is very uncomfortable (just newly built what were they thinking?) There is a bus on the upper level on the left when you get out of the airport which is really cheap (approx.4) to get to the city. Ask the bus driver to let you off in Currie Street where the YHA is. It is only about 10 minutes from the airport.

Where: Landside

(Contributed by Zack) - "The airport closes from 11 PM to 4 AM every night. Do not attempt to sleep here. I ended up on a metal bench from midnight to 4 AM and it was not pleasant. The chairs in the main check-in area are not comfortable if anyone is planning on just going at 4 AM. Once through security, there are comfortable couches to lie down on." Added 01 April 2007
