2018 began with a party in February where we announced that AirAsia would begin flights out of Avalon by December. A packed hangar formed the arena that blue-sky day in February, and since it was an announcement ten years in the making, the celebrations reverberated across the region.
Avalon Airport today formally launched its new international terminal ahead of AirAsia flights commencing this week.
The new international terminal was officially opened by Senator the Hon. Marise Payne, Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Hon John Eren MP, Member for Lara.
AirAsia estimates around 500,000 international passengers will pass through Avalon Airport in the first year of operation.
Dust off that suitcase and reach for the passport, because flying to Asia has just become a whole lot easier!
There’s a good reason South Australia is known as the Festival State. Most of the credit for the name can go to the city of Adelaide, which puts its festive spirit on display numerous times every year to celebrate food, drink, music, art, life, and good times in general.
