Sydney Airport Review

by web-administrator (January, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Sydney Airport Intnernational arrivals is an embarrassment as a supposed world-class city. It's old, tired, over-crowded, under-manned, hot, noisy; staff, especially customs and immigration, are unfriendly. Often lengthy walks from arrival gates to customs/immigration. I dislike immensely the tacky duty free you have to walk through. The arrivals area for persons waiting for passengers is also too small, frequently overcrowded (dangersously so) and noisy. Car parking costs are outrageous.

New Years Eve at Sydney's Kingsford Smith international airport.

(Guest Review by Sue Grayson) I had a wonderful new years eve sleeping in the international airport at Kingsford Smith in Sydney. The other sleepover passengers were great fun, with good conversation and hilarous stories, especially the two delightful ladies sitting with me. My lounge chair was more comfortable than some beds i've ever slept in, and my tablet was on free charge right next to me. Wifi is free, computers are free, and hot showers are free ! What luxury - a hot shower ! The highlight of the night was when a very lovely female security guard gave out whistles and party poppers just before midnight, and wished us all a Happy New Year ! We sleepover passengers had a great time, blowing our whistles and popping our party poppers and cheering in the New Year ! Thank you for a wonderful New Years Eve, security staff of Kingsford Smith International Airport ! :)

(Guest Review) I slept at the airport more than 10 years ago and we were locked in with passport and ticket checks and security around. This time was very surprised that there was no checking anyone, no locking in, people sleeping everywhere. Not sure if this is the usual procedure now as I heard a cleaner complaining about the scattered bodies. It was busy and noisy and uncomfortable and most made use of the free wi-fi. It is satisfactory for a very early flight.

(Guest Review) Sydney International seems to be under constant construction. We had an early flight and there were limited food/ drink options available because most places were closed. Why you have to run the gauntlet of duty free shops is beyond me. Dirty and limited toilets in the arrivals hall. Compared to Incheon or Changi, Sydney International is a disgrace.

Beware of e-passport machines

by web-administrator (October, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Delaware) When using an airport my main concern is the time it takes getting through immigration and security and getting to my gate. The airport itself is large, modern, clean with all the amenities you would expect from a city like Sydney but, the immigration queue is ridiculous. Beware If you have an e-passport and try using the passport reading machines because my experience both coming in and flying out of Sydney show that about 10 of the time they don't work. If your passport doesn't read you'll be queued in the assist line which can and did twice for me take 30-45 minutes to get through! I've never seen as much chaos, confusion and yelling as I did at Sydney's Immigration area. Going through security was fine.
