Adelaide International Airport is with well over 7 million passengers a year, the fifth busiest airport in Australia. A new terminal constructed in 2005 has greatly improved passenger convenience at Adelaide Airport and it has been voted the world's second best international airport in the category up to 15 million passengers.
The new terminal is a combined domestic and international terminal and can handle the Airbus A380 SuperJumbo.
The Adelaide Airport has ATM's and currency exchange, shops and restaurants and within the terminal there is free Wi-Fi.
The Adelaide International Airport is located about 7 km west of the city center and near the famous West Beach.
There are several public transport options as well as taxi's available. There is a public JetBus, line J1/J2 which departs throughout the day every 15 min. A ticket costs $5.10 during peak hours ($3.30 off-peak) and the bus ride will take up to half an hour to the city center. The Skylink Adelaide shuttle bus stopped operating in 2016, unfortunately.
Taxi's into the city would cost around $20 and are available just outside the terminal.

Adelaide Airport is not a large airport so there are not many flights departing here. There are only a few destinations that you can reach from Adelaide Airport, most of these are operated by Alliance Airlines. Many people take a flight to Melbourne and transfer to another flight there.
