Adelaide Airport will expand its aircraft parking apron (at bottom centre-left) for an additional four aircraft.

Adelaide Airport Limited (AAL) has announced it will commence works to expand the apron area south west of Terminal 1 later this month to create more space for aircraft parking.

An AAL statement said the expansion will add approximately 20,000 square metres of space to the southern apron, creating sufficient parking for an additional four aircraft.

“The southern apron expansion will largely cater for aircraft that are ‘laying over’ for a longer period of time between arrivals and departures,” AAL Managing Director, Mark Young said. “Moving these aircraft to the southern apron, once passengers have disembarked, then frees up more space at the terminal gates for other in-bound aircraft.”
