A multi-million dollar upgrade of Darwin International Airport has doubled the terminal capacity and ensured it has the ability to attract air services to support the territory’s tourism, business and industry.
The eastern and western ends of the 1991-built terminal were extended to double its capacity and meet the growing number of visitors. Customer service was also improved with better baggage systems and security screening areas, new airline lounges and retail upgrades. The Air Design extra low profile SLIMtherm Fan Coil Unit helps maintain comfortable conditioned spaces, and was easily retrofitted into the existing celling cavities.
Improvements to the outside include a 15,000 square metre extension to the airport apron, airside lighting upgraded, six new boarding gates and three aircraft parking bays created. The upgrades will enable the airport to handle the growing number of passengers and air services required.
