Fascinating statistics! :D Thankyou
Just wondering, how hard or is it possible for the average person, to get these figures? Whether it's for Adelaide, Melbourne or some other airport?

After enduring a few early morning international arrivals recently I really hope some money is spent improving the experience before the international arrivals area becomes busier. The current set up is not a good introduction to the country and it's an extremely poor welcome home.

I've booked my next few trips returning via Sydney or Melbourne. Adelaide is shockingly bad.

Hi stevenw,
I haven't experienced the morning international terminal, what did you find wrong with it?
I'm travelling international from ADL for the first time soon, so keen to hear whats good and not so good.
I've always flown out of SYD or BNE for international.
Cheers

G'day Michael,

I've had a couple of recent arrivals from Hong Kong which have coincided with a Jetstar flight from Denpasar. Most of the e-passport machines haven't been working, so the queue to pass through immigration moves particularly slowly. There are something like six machines there with three gates, which should be enough but the past couple of times I've only seen two machines - the rest have been covered and have been out of service.

The weird design of the area where the single baggage carousel lives has resulted in the queue to get out of the place via customs extending to the far side of the carousel and then doubling back on itself back to the bottom of the stairs where it's formed some kind of weird swirling mass of people and bags because there's simply no more room for the queue to get any longer even if people want to join it. This means that people have to fight their way through two lines and against the flow of traffic to get to the end of the line. On my most recent arrival, people were queuing on the staircase just to get to the carousel because the line of people who were waiting for the single Border Force agent to direct traffic was blocking them from getting any closer. The area just isn't large enough. I overheard a lot of angry exchanges between people in the queue and people either trying to move against it to get to the end or who joined wherever they were and had people get angry at them for cutting the line. There simply wasn't room to move, let alone to the end of the queue.

Of course, there are plenty of Border Force people running around barking at people and threatening them with fines for even touching their mobile phones (probably to check the time) rather than actually contributing to moving the queue or helping people fight through two lines of people moving in opposite directions to get to the end of the queue. I overheard a couple of Adelaide Airport staff helping people in wheelchairs say to someone "Well, it's not normally this bad but as soon as two aircraft arrive at the same time it turns into a bit of a mess" so the airport authority must be aware of the problem.

Contrast this to getting from aircraft to taxi via fetching bags and passing through immigration and customs in both Hong Kong and Singapore in under fifteen minutes... Adelaide has a lot of room for improvement. There just isn't enough space to handle much more traffic, or two aircraft at the same time. Even with priority bag tags (which didn't make any difference whatsoever) it still took well over an hour to get from aircraft to pick up, even after being waved through the green lane at customs. It's chaos, and not a very good introduction to Australia or a very nice way to come home.

Departing Adelaide is usually OK. Safe travels!

I can vouch for Hong Kong. It leaves any Australian Airport for dead. :lol:

I've noticed that Singapore is flying extra services at the moment. Seems to be the afternoon flight again. Does anyone know the details? How many extras, for how long etc? Sorry if I missed the info somewhere.

Hi all,

Is China Southern Airlines commencing Adelaide service Mon/Tue Dec 12/13? Or has this been postponed or not signed off yet?

regards,

Werner
