Gold Coast Airport undergoing $500m transformation


Gold Coast Airport is undergoing a multi-million transformation that will see the addition an airport bar and lounge, expanded food and beverage offering and new luxury retail stores.

The ongoing $500 million transformation builds on the airport’s $260 million Southern Terminal Expansion which was officially opened one year ago this month to cater for increased demand.

The first phase of works is focused on its retail offering and include new food and beverage outlets. Early next year the second phase of works will begin focused on the refurbishment of the departure lounge more broadly including new wayfinding and flight information boards.

Gold Coast Airport COO Marion Charlton said the relocation of international services provided additional space and an opportunity to expand the offering within the domestic terminal.

“These upgrades will provide customers with more choice while waiting for their flight and will help to bring the look and feel of our domestic terminal more in line with our Southern Terminal Expansion,” Charlton said.

“We want locals to be proud of their airport and these refurbishment works will deliver a modernised airport terminal with more retail, new food and beverage offerings and an expanded departure lounge.

“At the moment there is a lot of work happening in the terminal, passengers will notice some stores are closed while they are refitted and we appreciate their patience while we deliver these upgrades to help bring our customers an improved airport experience.”

The upgrades are expected to be completed mid-late next year.
