8-Feb-2013 3:07 PM

Australia's Perth Airport announced (08-Feb-2013) its AUD120 million (USD123 million) domestic terminal 2 would open on 02-Mar-2013. Construction of the terminal commenced in Sep-2011. The terminal will open at 30% capacity and host Skywest and Alliance Airlines services from 02-Mar-2013 and Tiger Airways Australia services from May-2013. Perth Airport CEO Brad Geatches said the facility is the first stage in the airport's plan to operate all commercial air services from one precinct by 2020 and will allow improved connections to international services for regional passengers. Mr Geatches said, "This is the first of our major projects to be completed and comes at a time when there is continuing strong growth in aviation activity to regional western Australia driven largely by the resource sector's fly-in, fly-out workforce model. The opening of terminal 2 represents a major step forward in meeting the requirements of the resource sector." [more - original PR]
