Sydney Airport in Australia has begun the latest phase of its Terminal 1 (T1) improvements program with the redevelopment of the passenger gate lounge areas, the renovation of the emigration and security entrance, and installation of new navigation signage.
The airport’s T1 improvements program began in 2015 with the installation of 25 automated border control (ABC) gates and a number of new retail and dining options. The final stages will see the addition of two retail and dining precincts known as The Marketplace and City View, which will boast a number of new dining experiences such as The Bistro by Wolfgang Puck, Benny Burger by Shannon Bennett, and Kitchen by Mike.
Kerrie Mather, managing director and CEO of Sydney Airport, said, “With the most improvement projects underway at the airport since the 2000 Sydney Olympics, we have worked tirelessly on the upgrade of T1 while ensuring minimal disruption for the 150,000 people who visit the airport every day.
“We are extremely proud of what we have achieved so far and with more upgrades planned in coming months, we look forward to delivering a world-class airport experience for everyone departing, visiting or arriving in Sydney.”
