Serving as the city’s primary gateway, Sydney Airport sits at an 8km distance south from downtown and enjoys probably the highest passenger traffic in the whole of Australia. Tracing its origins to the 1920s when the airport was a simple aerodrome, the airport has since undergone extensive upgrades and additions to its premises. 1953 also saw the airport being re-christened after local aviator Sir Charles Edward Kingsford Smith for his dedication to the industry. Today, Sydney Airport has received widespread recognition for its continuous delivery of excellent service and facilities. This is exemplified by the multiple titles conferred on the airport.


Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport comprises three terminals committed to serving passengers. Terminal 1, otherwise known as the International Terminal, serves long-haul destinations like London and Los Angeles. It is home to several reputed carriers like Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Emirates.
