Canberra airport bosses say a three-year .. 350-million dollar makeover will make it the best airport in Australia.
Managing director STEPHEN BYRON was speaking at the launch of the start of construction on the airport’s new environmentally-friendly southern concourse terminal today.
He says the Commonwealth Bank of Australia .. Westpac and WestLB will provide more than 330-million dollars to fund the project .. dubbed AirVolution.
Travellers will eventually benefit from the installation of international capabilities .. including immigration and customs .. more than double the number of check-in counters .. triple the baggage capacity and quadruple the airline club lounge areas.
About time! As Canberra grows, this is precisely the sort of infrastructure upgrade the city needs. With any luck, direct international flights to Canberra will help with tourism as well.
