Located in the suburb of Mascot, Sydney, Australia’s busiest airport, served over 26 million passengers in 2010 and is a primary hub for the country’s major airline Qantas and a secondary hub for Virgin Australia and Jetstar Airways.The airport has three main passenger terminals. Terminal 1, originally opened in 1970, replaced the old overseas passenger terminal and has been greatly expanded since. It is now known as the International terminal located at the airport’s north western sector and is made up of 30 gates and split into three levels serving arrivals, departures and airline offices.In 2010, the terminal underwent a major $500 million redevelopment expanding shopping facilities, centralising custom operations and increasing the terminal floor space.Terminal 2 is located in the north eastern section of the airport, incorporating 14 parking bays, aerobridges and a number of non-contact bays. Terminal 3 is the airport’s domestic terminal, also located in the north-eastern section. Extensions were made to this terminal during the late 1990s. Here there are 14 parking bays served by aerobridges. The terminal is also home to a ‘heritage collection’, dedicated to Qantas, that showcases the airline’s 90 years of service. The freight terminal is located north of Terminal 1 and is used for international freight operations.
