Since its inception, Melbourne Airport’s integrated ‘under-one-roof’ terminals precinct has provided operational and convenience advantages for travellers and airlines alike. With its carefully planned, incremental enhancements of terminal facilities, Melbourne Airport has built on the excellent foundation established over 50-years ago.

The following are the terminal upgrade projects currently underway.

Terminal 1 upgrade

Terminal 1 has been home to Qantas and its predecessors Australian Airlines and Trans Australia Airlines since 1971. 

To ensure the terminal continues to reflect the best of Victoria, Melbourne Airport is undertaking a significant upgrade of its retail outlets and facilities.

This includes the installation of new escalators, a refresh of the main concourse and the opening of new food and beverage options.

This project is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2023.

Terminal 2 upgrade

Terminal 2 has been Victoria’s gateway to the world since Melbourne Airport opened in July 1970 and has been progressively expanded as travel demand increased.

Melbourne Airport is refreshing the international departures hall, upgrading the international arrivals walk and improving passenger amenities.

Melbourne Airport is also investing in a significant upgrade of the terminal’s baggage system to extend its capacity and improve reliability.
