    Adelaide International Airport (ADL)

    by ATXtraveler Written Jul 28, 2007

    South Australia's Capital City, Adelaide is serviced by one of the premier airports in Australia. Named as the Australian Capital City's Airport of the Year, ADL is no slouch on the airport circuit. Great facilities, plenty of direct and indirect connections, and a larger number of international carriers bless this tiny regional outpost's main air center. It is a shock to me that small Adelaide (in comparison to Sydney/Melbourne) could have similar or better flight schedules than their bigger brothers. Way to go politicians fighting for SA!

    Domestically, ADL services Qantas, Virgin Blue, and Jetstar (the big three). Rurally, it has REX, National Jet, and O'connor for small hops. Internationally, Qantas, Cathay to HKG, Singapore, Malaysia to KL, and Air New Zealand if you are going to the "eastern states" of Australia, New Zealand.

    New Adelaide Airport

    by lovinoz Updated Aug 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Adelaide Airport has finally opened their new terminal! Construction was done in October of 2005, the scheduled time for opening, however it was delayed due to some kind of contamination in the fuel lines that are used to refuel the jets.

    Now that the new terminal is open, you can finally access your plane via an aerobridge instead of walking across the runway. Especially nice on cold rainy days!

    Skylink Shuttle from Adelaide Airport

    by digivixen Written Nov 7, 2004

    The Skylink Shuttle picks up from Adelaide airport and will drop you and your luggage off to any of the city hotels.

    The bus is comfortable and air conditioned. The bus drivers are friendly and knowledgeable and do not expect tips.

    Contact (08) 83320528 for prices and a timetable. Happy travelling!

  • Adelaide has a very small...

    Adelaide has a very small airport but it is okay. there are regular frights from all of the states and also singapore and all of the usual spots.If you are in a different Australian state then I don't recomend travelling by train. the trains are very slow ( except for the gahn) take the bus, its not terrifically fast but it is alright and quite comfortable.
    Don't rely on the adelaide transportation system, it is crap. Busses don't run at night, and the trains are usually slow and stop in dark, scary suburbs. Usually to get home from a party or club, take a taxi.

    SingaporeAirlines

    Only 2 airlines fly direct from Singapore to Adelaide. They are Singapore Airlines & of course, Qantas.

    It is a 5.5-6 hours journey.
