Sydney Airport has confirmed its outdoor observation deck at the northern end of the T1 international terminal will close.
The deck, a popular area for spotters and travellers to watch and photograph aircraft taking off and landing with the city’s skyline in the background, has been earmarked by the airport for “a range of potential uses,” an airport spokesman told Australian Business Traveller.
“Sydney Airport understands that the deck is popular with the aviation community,” the spokesman said. “The decision to close the observation deck was not taken lightly and we are currently reviewing other options that would enable a unique experience overlooking the runway.”
