Avalon Airport has just unveiled its latest exciting project – a $200,000 upgrade of the terminal and departure lounge.
The refurb has been timely, with direct flights to the Gold Coast to begin from 26 October, as well as the very recent Jetgo announcement of a temporary flight schedule to and from Dubbo from 27 October.
The make over means the airport has become incredibly functional as well as comfortable.
“This upgrade will significantly increase passenger comfort in what is already a very accessible and friendly airport,” says Avalon Airport CEO Justin Giddings. “We want the people of Melbourne’s west to be proud of their local airport by providing facilities and access which exceeds expectations.”
It begins with a new lounge outside check-in for early arrivers or people who are waiting to pick up passengers.
The terminal lounge is now bordered by pristine white work benches, with power and USB charging stations the entire length, so that travellers may recharge their devices, without having to find and unplug the nearest massage chair – as is known to happen in airports around the country!
Travellers can stay connected with free wifi, which is delivered through a partnership with Deakin University. Students can also access eduroam though this feature.
Lounge seating by the window makes for a relaxing start to any journey, and by Friday afternoon (with the café’s Friday Slider special each week) the place is vibrant and humming.
