Great to see that YPPH is getting it's long overdue upgrade. It might not necessarily be a good thing for XR though. This plan puts QF and XR on opposite sides of the airport. That will make QQ more attractive to the Mining FIFO industry.

Xeptu- you make it sound like the pax will have to travel to another city to catch a connecting QF flight. Im sure there will be more regular transfers than there are now between Intl and domestic. But then this is WAC we are talking about....

You can chock in as many terminals as you like, without extra runways and taxi ways, it will still be chaos as usual

Every transition I fly connects to an approach, unless you are seriously complaining about the visual approaches onto 03 and 06?

8-10 year it says, it probably won't be finished on schedule, these things normally aren't.

The mining boom will be over, and until then Perth will be a bigger shit fight than it is now, with all the planed works.

Are the car parking operators thinking about aviation??? Surely it is a misprint.

As mentioned previously W.A.C are about 5 years behind the demand curve. You can blame ATC for the delays but they can only work with the infrastructure given to them. At the end of the day there has been NOTHING done to improve the efficiency of the aerodrome.

Chopping down trees and building car parks are not helping. Chopping down trees and building supermarket warehouses has not helped. Realignment of the perimeter fence has not helped. Even building the of stand parking has done nothing except increase the conflicting tows.

W.A.C needs to pull its finger out and get on with it - NOW

This plan looks like more rubbish! (Not that GT would notice!) No aero-bridges, single story facility, walk for miles layout, no multi-story parking, wrong side of airport. (I'm sure WAC have great plans for the real estate on the 'old' domestic terminal site which is far more convenient to the city for the business travellers and most of Perths residents from just about everywhere.) The WA Gov. shouldn't fall for this plan! Once again WAC show that they don't run the airport for aviation or the passengers! The proposition that there is not enough room for development on the western side of the airport is complete rot. (Start with multi story parking.) Face the fact that the international terminal was designed and positioned by bureaucrats who got it wrong. Why continue with a dud plan? It should be demolished. If a second runway is ever built, the problem of accessibility will just get worse. (A bit like railway stations in the middle of the freeway!) It is time that WAC started serving the industry that the airport was designed for. Our idiot politicians sold out for a few quick dollars. These 'owners' are there for real estate!

Ohhhh. im gonna miss parking 2kms away in the 'short term' car park , then catching a bus to the terminal, then walking thru legoland to catch another bus to the aircraft, then waiting at the holding point for 30 mins + to depart!

Umm dont really know that much about the real estate etc at Perth Airport, but why would they put the regional terminal next to the international terminal rather than the domestic one? Surely most regional punters connect to domestic flights rather than international ones (particularly the mine workers). Seems very odd.

And I love their picture of the new international terminal, complete with a QF A380 parked there... as if QF would ever fly the A380 to Perth, they can barely fill an A330 to/from there !!

You are obviously on different QF 330s to me then. The ones I am on are packed to the gunwhales, as are the 76's, to and from PH

lets just hope that WAC get the regional terminal right as compared to Adelaide where the regional boarding area is a mess, especially for arriving passengers

Sorry I disgaree. Putting the international on a green field site was a good move. The semi circular design was all the rage but is now out of favour. What WAC have done and are doing is criminal.

The original parallel runway to 03/21 was to be the same length as the existing. Now have a look here...Perth Airport : Master Plan

As to TERMINAL WA, that was put on hold for the GFC. What a mistake. It could be READY NOW for use and would have been BUILT CHEAPER during the slow down as trades and materials were cheaper.

FOUR DOLLARS to rent a baggage trolley at the domestic airport.

Have I missed something? I can't see where QF domestic fits into this grand plan, they talk about, VB, intrastate, and common user terminals, blah blah blah, but no QF!

If they did this right, every jet service would be served via airbridge, under one roof, good work WAC!
