Passengers can also make use of the free and unlimited WiFi, restaurants, shops and airline lounges in the terminal building.

Getting to Adelaide Airport

If you're on a tight budget, the cheapest way to get to the airport from the CBD is with the public bus. JetExpress and JetBus both operate regular services to and from the airport, 7-days a week.

Staying at one of the hotels in Adelaide's CBD? You can book a transfer with the door-to-door shuttle service. It runs every day and will only set you back AUD 10.

Metered taxis and ridesharing services are also available. A single trip will set you back AUD 13-17 and takes 20 minutes if there is no traffic.

If you want to leave your car at Adelaide Airport you can choose from two options:

  • Terminal Car Park: For weekend trips to the Gold Coast, park your car here. It offers the best rates for short-term stays and is close to the terminal building.
  • Long Term Car Park: Spending a week or more at the Gold Coast? This car park offers the best long-term rates and is only a 10-minute walk to the check-in counters.
