Adelaide Airport (ADL)

You are here Home  > South Australia  > Adelaide >  Adelaide Airport (ADL)

Adelaide Airport is located between the city centre and West Beach. The airport has frequent flights to most Australian destinations including Alice Springs, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney and also handles some international flights.

Many hostels in Adelaide offer free pick up from the airport but it is best to phone ahead to book first. The JetBus (routes J1 and J2) and JetExpress (route J1X) buses are the cheapest way to travel between the airport and the city centre. The trip costs just $5.10 ($3.20 off peak) and you can use Adelaide Metro Singletrip and Daytrip tickets on JetBus and JetExpress services.

If you’re arriving on a late flight you’ll need to take a taxi into town, which will cost around $15.

    Modern airport with quick security screening. Plenty of food and bevy options. Kick back in the Qantas Lounge if you can!

    All airports suck. Adelaide is one of the better ones though.

    Small airport, nothing will be open if you’re flying during the wee hours.

    It’s so small I didn’t notice it... that probably a good thing for an airport!

    This airport is great! Had a good experience with the need to use a wheelchair last min and Qantas/Jetstar and airport staff were there assisting all the way.

    First time I've ever seen a live band at an airport. Also a beautiful copper sculpture of a sea dragon

    For a facility that is entirely dependant on time, time keeping, and being on time, there is a distinct lack of clocks and obvious time pieces (I think I saw one hiding behind a beam)

    Great modern airport. Nice retail and food options. Easy access to gates. Access to parking is easy as well.
