Qantas to construct international wing at Perth Airport

Airline operator Qantas has unveiled its plans to construct a new international wing within its dedicated terminals (Terminals 3 and 4) at Perth Airport in Australia.

It will feature a large outdoor deck with alfresco seating, a streamlined immigration and customs area, a new duty-free store, and additional food and beverage (F&B) outlets. The outdoor area will also boast a barbeque grill and menu designed by Australian chef Neil Perry.

Preparatory works for the T3/T4 precinct have already begun with completion scheduled for March next year, in time for the inaugural non-stop services between Perth and London, UK.

Qantas will also construct a new International Transit Lounge that will provide a space for customers to relax and refresh between flights. The lounge will offer more than a dozen shower suites, relaxing seating areas, and a wellness facility. All of the airline’s domestic flights, as well as services to Singapore, Auckland (New Zealand) and London, will operate from the international wing.

Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas Group, said, “Perth will become the western hub for our international services to the UK and potentially other European destinations in the future. Combining all of our operations under one roof means customers can transfer from domestic to international services without changing terminals. The new design allows for an outdoor space and natural sunlight, which is something we know our customers will value ahead of a long haul flight. It’s fair to say there’s been a huge amount of excitement about the launch of our non-stop services from Perth to London, and we’re delighted to be working with the government and Perth Airport to encourage overseas visitors to stopover in Perth.”

Kevin Brown, CEO of Perth Airport, said, “There’s already been so much hard work done by the Perth Airport and Qantas teams on this project and it’s incredibly exciting that we can now see the vision taking shape for what will be a world class transit lounge.”
