Melbourne Airport Access

Updated February 2015

Melbourne airport – Integrated transport hub
– Located in front of the low cost terminal 4
– Hub for taxis, Public transport buses, additional parking, additional pick up and drop off bays
– Future site for Melbourne airport rail link train station

Cheapest option – Public Transport. There are several public buses which leave Melbourne Airport and connect with various train stations allowing a connection to the city. By far the most frequent of these is the 901, which runs every 15 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes on weekends. This connects to numerous train stations, of which Broadmeadows is the first you’ll reach. In addition, the 478, 479 and 482 go to Airport West, note these are substantially less frequent, however.

Public transport bus  information: http://ptv.vic.gov.au/getting-around/airport-buses/

The public bus services are located near to the front of terminal one (the Qantas / Jetstar terminal) at Melbourne airport.

Most frequent serviced option – Skybus. The SkyBus service runs at 15 minute intervals most of the day, but is available 24 hours. An open return costs $28 and is valid for three months. The journey rarely takes more than 30 minutes even in peak periods.

There are three Skybus access points at the airport, one in front of Terminal 1 (Qantas) , another in front of Terminal 3 (Virgin Australia) and another one just for pick up infront of terminal 4 (Tiger  / Jetstar lowcost terminal).

If you are arriving from any other terminal, you will need to go to either of these locations. The sky bus areas are clearly noticeable in the red signage and there’s a ticketing booth in each.   If there’s a crowd at one of the pick up points, you can always walk to the other one.

See more details about sky bus destinations here: https://lifettlens.com/melbourne/
– Section “Airport (and transport to/from)”

Link: Skybus – http://www.skybus.com.au/

Also private shuttle bus providers also offer services catering to Victorian country and semi rural areas: http://melbourneairport.com.au/to-from-the-airport/other-bus-services/other-buses.html

The most convenient and economical option: The Travelling by own car. Melbourne airport has various options for drivers dropping off or picking up passengers.

Short term parking. The best option for fare-welling your loved ones of friends, is to pre-purchase two hour short term parking via the Melbourne airport website. Whilst it’s still not the cheapest, the 15 dollars for two hours provides better value for money and the convenience of either personally fare-welling or greeting your fellow travellers.

There is also official Long term parking provided by Melbourne Airport available. And nearby the airport, there are also third-party secure parking providers – but be aware of the pricing, services provided and past client reviews of each of the parking providers before proceeding.

All information about Melbourne airports’ carparks and facilities can be found here:  http://melbourneairport.com.au/to-from-the-airport/airport-parking/car-parks.html

Ring and ride. For a quick pick up or drop off: there is a dedicated ‘ring and ride’ area nearby to the airport. They do charge a small fee and is only for waits up to one hour (afterwards short term parking fees apply) – so best to plan you timing accordingly.

Once your loved one arrives, they simply call you from in front of the main terminal at the ‘public pick up bays’ and they will state the signed and numbered location bay where they are standing at. You then simply drive and follow up signage to the location bay they are waiting at.

Travelling by taxi.

Skybus – Avalon to Southern Cross station – http://www.skybus.com.au


Sydney Airport Access

Updated February 2015

Cheapest option – Public bus (subject to change): The 400 bus between Bondi and Burwood via the domestic airport doesn’t include any premium airport charge. It doesn’t pass through the centre of the city, but it’s easily the cheapest option if you are departing from somewhere along its route, and departs every 20 minutes or so (30 minutes on weekends). Link: Sydney buses – http://www.sydneybuses.info/routes/400_20101128_tt.pdf

Most convenient option – Sydney’s Airport Link train (http://www.airportlink.com.au/). This  runs every 15 minutes or so, with stops at both the domestic and international terminals. A single ticket to the domestic from Central costs $15.40, and to international costs $16.20; tickets from other stations on the CityRail network cost a few dollars more. There’s no option for an open return, though you can buy a same-day return (minimum cost $25.80, more for outlying stations).

Notes: There’s no extra charge for exiting at Mascot station, which is about a 20 minute walk from the domestic airport. That makes it a potential option for cheaper travel, though in poor weather or with lots of luggage it’s less appealing. If you’re already travelling on a MyMulti or other weekly ticket, buying a single, return or weekly gatepass when you reach the airport via train is a cheap but little-promoted option.

Plane Spotting


MAJOR WORLDWIDE STOPOVER HUBS

If you are planning to travel long-haul, it may be worthwhile to utilise your airline carriers stop over specials / offers to explore a city along the way to your final destination – This includes specials on accommodation and sightseeing.

The significance of the major transit hubs of the world is greatly affected by the range of worldwide routes which the home airline carrier offers – for instance now Middle east stopovers are popular for Australians travelling to Europe.


Indirect connections Via Asia

Also for possible cost savings (not always) you can travel from Australia to one of the major Asian hubs (via low cost airlines), as some European full and low cost carriers have services only as far as to the Asian region. For example, Turkish airways offers services to Jakarta, Norwegian Airways to Bangkok and also other European carriers also offer services in including these and Singapore, Phuket, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. For ease of connection many of these European airlines have codeshare arrangements with airlines that travel into Australia and offer luggage transfer / connections in the relevant Asian hubs. (For more information on codesharing – refer to the codeshare section below on this page)


Utilising unconventional Transit points

You may also consider going an ‘unconventional’ routing to international destinations using Asian or Pacific airline carriers to various international destinations. From Australia, you may consider going to Europe on Royal Brunei Airways (stopping over in Brunei, Dubai onwards to London) or even Garuda Indonesia to Europe via Jakarta or even Vietnam airways to Europe via Saigon (Ho chi Minh). or even Air India to Europe via New Delhi.

There is also an option from Australia to travel to Europe via the Eastern African island nations such as Mauritius, Seychelles and Reunion islands. An example is Air Mauritius has a service from Perth to Mauritius. And then from Mauritius, Air Mauritius flies to London and Paris. Also Austrian Airlines has a seasonal direct service from Mauritius to Vienna.

Routing eastwards, you may consider Philippine airways to Los Angeles, New York or Vancouver via Manila. or even Fiji Airways to Los Angeles via Nadi. or even travelling to Papeete (French Polynesia) which has a direct flight connection to Easter Island in Chile, Santiago and United States. or even stopping off in Honolulu to travel to United states destinations. or even Air New Zealand to travel to London via Los Angeles and Auckland.

The point is that there are various routings which you may consider to reach your destination – not normally known. The flight times may vary but you can enjoy a stop over along the way in a destination you may not have considered or planned on visiting. Plus because of the routings, the costs may be cheaper (always do your homework to see if it’s worth it).


Notable stop over airline carrier programmes

Qatar airways – http://www.qatarairways.com/plusqatar


Airlines servicing Australia – accessing carriers indirectly from other international destinations

Even many airlines which directly service Australian airports, such as the major gulf carriers (Etihad, Emirates and Qatar airways) may offer more competitive fares from nearby overseas Asian destinations. You may consider travelling via a low cost carrier to meet with one of the Asian hubs the gulf airlines service.

For example you may travel Low cost carrier to Singapore, Denpasar and Bangkok and then travel a major gulf carrier from there. You may end up with a cheaper fare, but ultimately you need to evaluate if this arrangement is worth the cost and time benefits. Usually the airlines may have a sale from Asian destinations based on capacity remaining or simply a sale just from these specific destinations.


The below list are some of the most prominent stop over points / airports which you may consider:

Inter regional carriers (Carriers specialising in local country or limited regional areas)

Around the world many carriers specialise in regional and local country flights, as their niche market. Many major international carriers have a local regional division which service destinations within their home country or also includes neighbouring countries.

An example is Qantas has an International division, but also a local intercity and regional flight service called Qantas link. Similarly, Hawaiian airlines operate international destinations fro their home airport Honolulu airport, but also has a near monopoly on flights between the Hawaiian islands. This is the case as Alaska airlines, having coverage in the Alaskan region.

Air-passes

The three above mentioned airline alliances offer a variety of regional and global airline passes for travellers who have plans to visit many destinations – which require many flights. These are available from the alliance websites and/or individual member carrier websites. Some airline passes are restricted to certain individual airlines or within only the airline carriers within the alliance.

Each air pass have their certain terms and conditions of use, such as the amount of locations eligible to visit and timeframe of when the pass can be used. So do your homework to work our whether an airpass works best for you VS round the world fare VS individual flight bookings.

Apart from the airlines within the alliances, some non aligned carriers also have airpasses.
