Perth Airport PER
is Western Australia's primary Airport and serves its capital city Perth and surrounding areas. While its domestic flights are still the prevailing ones, international flights, particularly those from Malaysian and Indonesian markets, have dramatically increased after adding flights to Denpasar, Bali, which offers convenient connections onwards.
PER Airport is located south of Guildford, near Perth. From Perth center it is 12 km to the domestic terminals, or 17 km to the international terminal.
The new access road 'Airport Drive'
connecting to Tonkin/Leach Hwy. interchange leads into the new consolidated precinct 'Airport Central' around Terminals 1 & 2, providing direct access to the carparks.
With two runways and an estimated 13 million passengers annually, Perth Airport is served by domestic & international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
