Pros: -
Cons: -

(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

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.

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

Even has it's own Coopers bar :D Great long,leather, padded benches for sleeping on in the main area. After a late night we managed to get a good four hours sleep in the middle of the day here waiting for a connecting flight. Shoes up on their nice couches and all!" Added 31 Dec 06
