Going to and from the airports

Flights from Melbourne

Known as the second busiest airport in Australia, Melbourne Airport caters to millions of travellers each year. With the numbers continuously increasing, this aviation facility boasts a curfew free 24-hour operation that gives passengers a variety in their flight selections.

The airport has a single terminal precinct convenient for passengers walking through for connecting flights. This leads to four terminals dedicated to more than 30 destinations for commuter and cargo planes. Divided as such, T2 accommodates international routes and terminals T1, T3 and T4 service domestic trips, including flights from Melbourne to Adelaide.

Directions to Melbourne airport

Situated 22 kilometres away from Melbourne's central business district, the airport is accessible via different modes of transportation. One way is the Skybus Express Service that operates daily in Melbourne City and St. Kilda. Tickets are available at the bus stop or online.

In addition, Smart Bus services various routes to and from Melbourne Airport. These are Frankston (Route 901), Melrose Drive (Route 478), Sunbury Station (Route 479) and South Centre Road (Route 482). This service uses Myki cards that you can purchase from the drivers operating the vehicle or any of the Smart Bus counters in T1 and T3.

Reaching Adelaide

Adelaide has had its own remarkable contribution to the Australian artistic and cultural scene. It's a festive city of world-class music and visual arts, beginning with its Mad March celebrations, Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe and WOMADelaide. A must-see location to witness all the best sporting events is Adelaide Oval, where exhilarating games of cricket, football and soccer have taken place.

Adelaide also has mesmerising beaches and wildlife attractions to nourish your natural needs. Get a perfect tan while in Glenelg or opt for a destination closer to the city centre such as Adelaide Zoo–home to over 1,800 animals.

Getting to the city center

Buses offered by Adelaide Metro await you at the airport and operate in all major parts of the South Australian capital. Double decker buses called JetExpress travel to the city, while JetBus services Glenelg and West Beach (along with the city). Bus schedules are viewable online. Single and day trip Metrotickets are sold by the bus drivers.

For a more convenient "to their door" drop, travellers can opt to rent a car through the help desks near the baggage claim area at the ground level terminal. Moreover, city cabs can also be hailed just outside the airport terminal.
