The Melbourne Airport ART terminal expansion is part of a $500 million development programme at Melbourne Airport to accommodate continued growth in international passenger traffic and the new A380 double-decker aircraft.

The 5000 m² construction project has seen Melbourne Airport’s existing international terminal (T2) expand 20 metres to the north, a new third level added to the international terminal building, and two dual aerobridges installed.

The 20m x 80m expansion of the arrival and departures level of T2 has added over 3000 m² to the public gate-lounges, more than doubling the space previously available for seating. Two new gates have been fitted with dual aerobridges, each of which will have the flexibility to accommodate either one A380 or two smaller aircraft at one time. Passengers on the A380 aircraft will be able to board and disembark from both levels of the double-decker aircraft simultaneously.

A new 2000 m² third level above the terminal extension provides premium “penthouse” lounges for Qantas and Emirates – offering some of the best airline lounge space available due to its spectacular views over the concourse and runway.

The entire project, unveiled in time for the Commonwealth Games, was delivered in stages to minimise impact on passengers and airlines.

“The space provided by the ART extension is a very calming environment that is visually stimulating and a good place to dwell.”
