Sydney Airport is Swingin'

Sydney is heating up as a destination, and those in the know figure that international arrivals to Sydney will double in the next 15 years. (Will tourists be visiting for the nice people?) Whatever the reason, Sydney Airport has to get busy making itself bigger to cope with an extra 10 million passengers a year from overseas.

That's why they've just started a A$500 million ($450 million) makeover. One part of the renovation will provide space for A380s to load and unload passengers, and there will also be a redesign of the departure lounge, new baggage handling systems and of course a few more shops to take our final Aussie dollars before we leave the country.
