Perth Airport (IATA: PER, ICAO: YPPH) is an Australian domestic and international airport located south of Guildford, Western Australia, and is the major commercial airport servicing Western Australia's capital city, Perth. It is the fourth-largest airport in Australia and plays a strategic role due to its location – servicing many Australian, Asian, Indian Ocean, Pacific locations, as well as Johannesburg, South Africa. The airport has seen strong passenger growth in the last few years, primarily due to the prolonged mining boom and the increase in services from international budget carriers. In the first half of the financial year 2007/2008 passenger numbers increased by 13.34%[2] An IATA airport code, also known an IATA location identifier, IATA station code or simply a location identifier [1], is a three-letter code designating many airports around the world, defined by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). ...

Prior to the opening of the Perth Airport, civilian air services for the city were provided from airfields located in Maylands (in operation since 1924), as well as on the city's foreshore at Langley Park.[3] By the end of the 1930s, it became clear that the Maylands Aerodrome was limited in the size and speed of aircraft it was able to handle thus causing them to seek an alternative site for a future airport.[3] Image File history File linksMetadata Size of this preview: 800 × 532 pixelsFull resolution (3008 × 2000 pixel, file size: 2. ...

Site selection and preparation of the original plans was undertaken by Mr N M Fricker of the Department of Civil Aviation.[4] In 1938, land was selected and purchased for the new aerodrome. The site selected in what was at the time Guildford, was an area of land granted by Governor James Stirling to local man John Scott, which later became the long disused Dunreath Golf Course.[3][4] Guildford, Western Australia Guildford was established in 1829 on the Swan River, being sited near a permiment fresh water supply. ... Admiral Sir James Stirling Admiral Sir James Stirling RN (January 28, 1791–April 23, 1865) was a British marine officer and colonial administrator. ...


A plaque located on a roadside wall of the old International terminal remains in permanent memory of Scott:[4]

Perth Airport stands on part of an area granted originally by Governor James Stirling to John Scott. A yeoman farmer from Lanarkshire, Scotland who arrived in Western Australia in March 1831, after a voyage of about 90 days in the schooner Eliza of 343 tons. He came at the invitation of the governor, to establish and maintain a bloodstock farm for the colony. He made his home near Guildford, using the Swan River to reach the farm in this area.

In recognition of his services Governor Stirling granted him lease of an area at Bunbury, where he became the first settler in 1838.

Remember him as one who helped to bring prosperity to this land.

Military operations

Even before civil aviation operations could commence at the new site, the onset of World War II saw the facility being redesigned for military purposes as a temporary base for the Royal Australian Air Force and United States Navy, primarily to supplement RAAF Base Pearce.[3] Despite military use of the airfield, civil services operated by Qantas Empire Airways and Australian National Airways (ANA) commenced from the location in 1944.[3] This was despite bitter protest from Military authorities who felt civilian operations would undermine the defence and camouflage needs of the location.[3] Combatants Allied powers: China France Great Britain Soviet Union United States and others Axis powers: Germany Italy Japan and others Commanders Chiang Kai-shek Charles de Gaulle Winston Churchill Joseph Stalin Franklin Roosevelt Adolf Hitler Benito Mussolini Hideki Tōjō Casualties Military dead: 17,000,000 Civilian dead: 33,000...

The move was agreed to by the government of the day, as the larger types of aircraft of the day being operated by the two airlines could simply not be handled at Maylands, not withstanding the small grass airfield, lack of passenger facilities, and approaches being difficult due to surrounding industrial infrastructure.[3] Using Douglas DC-3 aircraft, ANA flew the first commercial service from the aerodrome to Adelaide.[3] On June 17, 1944, Qantas made its inaugural flight to Ceylon via Exmouth using a modified Liberator bomber, arriving in Perth on June 3, 1944 having been released to the airline by the British Government.[3] The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing, propeller-driven aircraft, which revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s and is generally regarded as one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made (also see Boeing 707 and Boeing 747). ...

Early civilian operations

Full civilian operations at the Guildford Aerodrome commenced in 1944.[4]. Civil operations at Maylands continued albeit reduced until June 30, 1963, when the airport closed and its function as a secondary airport were taken over by Jandakot Airport the very next day.[3] Jandakot Airport, (IATA: JAD, ICAO: YPJT) is an Australian general aviation airport located in Jandakot, Perth, Western Australia. ...


The Guildford Aerodrome as it was then known was at best only a basic airfield.[3] On a large open airfield with plenty of space, an unobtrusive control tower was hidden away amongst a collection of buildings inherited from the wartime operations at the site.[3] The then Department of Civil Aviation inherited a large number of operating vehicles from the former military occupants, including an assortment of vehicles including "Blitz" wagons, Dodge command cars and weapon carriers, large trucks and various makes of fire tenders, jeeps and ambulances.[3] Boarding aircraft at Guildford was described as being a bit like boarding a bus given the lack of passenger facilities at the time.[3]


In 1948, the Horrie Miller owned MacRobertson Miller Aviation Co. (MMA) relocated from Maylands to Guildford.[3] followed by newly-formed government airline Trans Australia Airlines (TAA) on December 2 of that same year, operating Douglas C-54 Skymasters on its Perth - Melbourne - Sydney route.[3] Due to the lack of road transportation across the Nullabor Plain, it was at this time that Guildford became the scene of very busy cargo operations.[3] Fresh fruits, vegetables, and manufactured goods were being flown from east to west and back again.

The airport only received international status and was renamed to Perth International Airport in 1952.[3] Officiated by the then Federal Minister for Civil Aviation, Hubert Anthony, the official ceremony for the renaming took place on the main apron in front of a converted Bellman hangar used by TAA as their passenger terminal.[3] At the time, a new international terminal building was under construction but had not been completed in time for the ceremony.[3] This new terminal was being constructed using steel and cladding recycled from American-built military quonset buildings being dismantled and shipped over from Manus Island.[3] Admiralty Islands. ...

The jet age

Towards the mid-1950s, airline travel was still only being used by a small percentage of the population. At that time, only 8% of the population had ever flown, but as the marketplace evolved, so did the types of people and their reasons for flying.[3]


It was at this time the airport began to experience the full effects of the jet age revolution.[3] As the aircraft of the day grew faster and more demanding due to their sophistication, facilities at the airport continued to improve to accommodate them.[3] By the mid 1960's that the airport commenced seeing its first pure jet engine aircraft, commencing with a Boeing 727 in 1964, and the Douglas DC-9 in 1967.[3] It was at this time that the airport was the only one in the country which operated without curfews, and due to the increased number and frequency of flights operating from the airport it gave birth to what was then referred to as the the midnight horror or red-eye special, known in more recent history as the Red-eye flight.[3] The Boeing 727 is a mid-size, narrow-body, three-engine commercial jet airliner. ...

Demise of the hangar terminals

In 1960, the current international terminal previously constructed from steel and cladding from Manus Island was dismantled and then re-erected in the suburb of Cannington.[3] Known as 'The Alco Building, it was re-designed for use as a commercial facility.[3] Cannington is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Canning. ...


The removal of the steel structure made way for the construction of an entirely new combined domestic and international passenger terminal, constructed on the Northern side of the airfield.[3] It was in 1962 that airlines were able to move from their hangars into a new combined passenger terminal, designed by the Commonwealth Department of Works and opened just in time to handle 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games traffic increases.[3][4] The new combined terminal was opened that same year by then Minister for Civil Aviation, Senator Shane Paldridge, and was located in an area positioned between Terminals 2 and 3 and currently used for as the crew base for both Qantas and Skywest, and offices for airlines and support firms.[3][5] Countries which participated The 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games were held in Perth, Western Australia, Australia from November 22 to December 1. ...

From 1962 onwards, both the domestic and international passenger operations at the airport were provided by a single terminal[5]. However, by the arrival of the Boeing 747 on September 3, 1971, the existing terminal had reached its capacity, and modeling of future passenger numbers showed it would be unable to handle any further increases in passenger demand[3][5].

In November 1980, the Federal Transport Minister, Ralph Hunt, announced that a new international terminal would be built in Perth at a cost of $26 m AUD (1980).[3] Design of the new International Terminal commenced in 1982, with one of the key principles of the design being the allowance for easy future expansion as the needs of the airport dictated[5]. The project called for the construction of a new terminal, apron, airside roads, access roads, car parks and other passenger facilities[5]. Au. ...


Construction of the new International Terminal and control tower commenced in March 1984 on the south-eastern side of the airfield.[5] In 1984, the road leading to the new terminal, Horrie Miller Drive was named in honour of local aviation pioneer Horrie Miller.[6] The terminal was officially opened on October 25, 1986 by then Prime Minister Bob Hawke, with the new terminal receiving passengers just days after.[3][5] The newly built control tower was the tallest in Australia at its time of construction, and remained so for a number of years.[7] Miller and friends with DH 60 Gispy moth VH-UJX Miller is 2nd from left Horace Clive Miller (Horrie Miller) was a pioneer aviator and airline operator in Western Australia, and founder of MacRobertson Miller Airlines (MMA). ... Robert James Lee (Bob) Hawke, AC (born 9 December 1929) was the 23rd Prime Minister of Australia after previously being an Australian trade union leader. ...


Upon completion, the terminal was able to process up to five Boeing 747 aircraft per hour and accommodated a peak passenger volume of 6,000 passengers per hour[5]. The Boeing 747, sometimes nicknamed the Jumbo Jet,[4][5] is a long-haul, widebody commercial airliner manufactured by Boeing in the United States. ...


From 2003 to 2004, the terminal underwent major internal refurbishments to provide an increased array of passenger services, including increased space for duty free stores and food and beverage concession stands[5]. Further upgrades valued at $AUD25 Million (2006) were made to the terminal across 2005 and 2006 which added an additional 2,500 m² of floor space, additional check-in counters, and an improved baggage handling and screening system[5]. Au. ...


In 2006, the International Terminal (T1) celebrated its 20th anniversary[5]. In the 12 months to June 2006 the terminal processed over 2.027 million passengers, surpassing a 1996 projection of 1.016 million passengers in that period[5].


1988 onwards

Prior to 1988, the government of the day saw fit to consolidate the ownership and management of the countries airports into a single operating entity. In 1988, the newly formed Federal Airports Corporation took over as manager of Perth Airport.[3]


At this time also, airline operators Qantas and Ansett set about on ambitious capital works programs to construct new domestic terminals for their respective airlines on the northern side of the terminal, where they still stand to this day.[3] Qantas Airways Limited (IPA: ) is the national airline of Australia. ... “Ansett” redirects here. ...


In 2001, after the financial collapse of Ansett Airlines, the Ansett terminal became a multi-user terminal, catering for flights from former Ansett-subsidiary Skywest, as well as Virgin Blue and now charter airlines Alliance Airlines and Ozjet.

Introduction of the Airbus A380

It has been suggested that with the introduction of the Airbus A380 aircraft, Perth Airport would be ideally positioned to serve as a hub for Europe-Australia flights – the so called Kangaroo route. Due to the ability for increased flight distances, carriers would be able to bypass historical stopovers in locations such as Singapore or Bangkok, instead flying directly from Perth to major European airports. The state government and airport administrators have stated it as a goal to make Perth attractive for this, and have plans to upgrade the airport to accommodate the larger aircraft and passenger numbers. The currently used Airbus A340-500 and Boeing 777-200LR both have a range long enough to go from London to Perth.[15] However, neither British Airways nor Qantas appears to have an interest in such a direct route at this time. However, Virgin Atlantic have announced plans to fly to Perth non-stop from London with the upcoming Boeing 787[16]. The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine airliner manufactured by the European corporation Airbus, an EADS subsidiary. ... For other uses, see Europe (disambiguation). ...

After a 10-month project, a reconstructed cross runway was opened on October 21, 2005.[17] The upgrades involved significant strengthening works and enlargement of turning nodes to accommodate regular operations by wide bodied aircraft, including the Airbus A380.[17]


2024 Airport Masterplan

The 2024 Airport Master Plan[18] aims for the domestic and international terminals to be consolidated into a single terminal on the south-eastern side of the airfield sometime between 2021 to 2024.[19] At present, the international and domestic terminals are on opposite sides of the airfield and are not directly connected through a regular public transport passenger service. While it is possible to travel by road between the two terminals, it is approximately an 11 kilometre (7 mi) distance between the two locations by public roads.


The 2024 masterplan calls for the completion of a rail link[13] that will connect with the Midland Line between Bayswater Station and Ashfield Station at the Tonkin Highway. The proposed rail link will continue above ground along Tonkin Highway to Great Eastern Highway where it is believed to go underground along Brearley Avenue and to the terminals in operation at completion of the line. A rail link to the airport was originally proposed in the 1990s by nearby local government bodies, however the proposal was not followed through at the time.

As of May 2007, Airport Management have increased discussion about bringing forward the timelines for completion of the master plan objectives[citation needed]. Primary reasons for this are the significant increases in domestic passenger traffic, brought about by increased mining activities in the state's north west region[citation needed]. Current statements by the Airport's management suggest that a majority of the master plan objectives including the consolidation of the domestic and international terminals on the southern side of the airfield may be planned as early as 2011[citation needed].

Surrounding lands

The land on which the airport is situated is Commonwealth Government land. The Airport property exists in a different jurisdiction from adjacent lands. As a consequence when the plans are regularly reviewed for the airport land, the unique status has been viewed with interest for the potential for enforcing rigorous environmental standards due to the remnant bushland within the boundaries – and also for potential developments that are not constrained by pressures on adjacent state jurisdiction lands.


Developing a third runway

Future planning for the airport sees a third runway built parallel to the existing main 03/21 runway. The plan is controversial as it would increase noise impact on a larger portion of the Perth metropolitan area.[20]

Accidents

  • In 1982, British Airways Flight 009, scheduled to land in Perth, sucked volcanic ash into its engines and sustained engine fires. The aircraft landed safely.
  • On September 2, 1999, the number one engine of a Qantas Boeing 747, en route from Sydney (Kingsford Smith) International Airport coming into land on Runway 06/24, struck the runway surface upon landing.[25] Originally, the plane had been destined to land on Runway 03/21. However, the pilot in command opted for a missed approach procedure after experiencing turbulence that rendered the aircraft unstable.[25] After discussion with ATC and changes in wind conditions, the aircraft was then offered the use of Runway 06/24.[25] However, on commencement of touchdown, it experienced a roll to the right. This was corrected by the pilot, but the aircraft still touched down with a left-wing-low attitude causing the engine to strike the runway surface for a length of 30 m that commenced at 490 m from the runway threshold.[25]

The cause was determined to be prevailing weather conditions which often result in low-level turbulence, also known as wind shear, largely due to local geography, with rolling winds caused by the nearby Darling Scarp.[25] The incident has resulted in efforts to improve weather monitoring systems around the airport.[25] Year 1982 (MCMLXXXII) was a common year starting on Friday (link displays the 1982 Gregorian calendar). ...
