SYDNEY (Sydney Airport) - Sydney Airport to invest $20 million in T2 to improve service for record number passengers. Over $20 million will be spent upgrading Terminal 2, the SACL owned domestic terminal at Sydney Airport, as it prepares for continuing growth in passengers numbers.
Sydney Airport welcomed over 18 million domestic passengers in FY2005, with traffic growth of 146% from two years earlier (FY2003) through T2, thanks to the success of Virgin Blue and the introduction of Jet Star.
As part of a broader plan to modernise the entire airport, improvements to T2 include:
an increase in self service check-in facilities
an improved retail offering, adding over 20 additional outlets giving travellers a choice from over 50 outlets, including a pub with outdoor area, totalling 5,000 m2 of retail space
an upgrade of existing amenities such as lighting, toilets, showers and surrounding areas
under cover bus connection points to aircraft
realigned and enhanced security screening
enhanced Flight Information Display Screens (FIDS), directional and orientation signage
expansive apron views and abundant natural light
Max Moore-Wilton, Executive Chairman & CEO of Sydney Airport Corporation said the redevelopment would benefit all airport customers
