Adelaide Airport undergoing significant upgrade, including upgrades to its access control system.

ADELAIDE Airport is upgrading its access control solution as part of a significant upgrade to the main terminal, with an announcement on the winning solution expected within 2 weeks.

The overall upgrade is significant and will increase the size of the terminal’s retail and dining precincts by 80 per cent. Other improvements include a new common user premium international lounge, new VIP facilities for international arrivals and departures, relocation of the Virgin Australia Lounge and expansion of office space for terminal tenants including airlines and regulatory agencies.

The expansion will also improve arrivals and departures for international passengers, with a second, longer baggage belt for arrivals, more space for emigration and immigration processing, and enhanced security screening.
