About Sydney

Sydney Airport is located right next to Botany Bay in Mascot, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. The airport is also known as Kingsford-Smith Airport. Sydney Airport is the only major airport for the region. It is located 5 miles from Sydney's downtown and is 6 miles or less from the majority of Sydney's major tourist attractions.

Currently Sydney ranks as Australia's busiest airport and ranks in the top 30 busiest airports in the world. It is also known for being one of the world's oldest continually operating airports. The airport serves over 36 million passengers and 290,000 aircraft movements every year. Of the passengers that they serve, approximately 22,000,000 are domestic, 2,000,000 are regional, and 12,000,000 are international.

The airport's current location in Mascot was originally used as a bullock paddock. In the early 1900s, Nigel Love was pursuing the possibility of Australian aviation. He determined that this spot would be ideal for aviation because it had no obstructions on all four sides. At the time, the land was owned by the Kensington Race Club who leased the land to Love for three years. After the lease expired, the federal government obtained the land from the racing club. In 1924, they began to run the first regular flights. The Sydney Airport Corporation Limited (SACL) manages the airport.

Sydney Airport has three runways. Informally, they are referred to as "north-south," "east-west," and "third." The airport has three terminals for passengers. One of the airport runways separates the two domestic terminals from the International Terminal. The logistics of this structure necessitate longer transfer times than are normally given for passengers connecting to flights. Sydney plans for these transfer times accordingly, allowing anywhere from half an hour to an hour and 15 minutes between flights, depending on the specific situation.

The airport serves as a primary hub for Quantas and a secondary hub for Jetstar Airways and Virgin Australia. Sydney Airport provides direct flights to 47 domestic destinations. They primarily provide international flights to Asian locations with a variety of other international destinations. They provide more destinations, routes, airlines, and frequencies than any other Oceania airport.

In NSW, Sydney Airport serves as a major employer. They also provide significant contributions to both the local and national economies. Their national contributions make up approximately 6% of the total NSW economy. The airport provides over 75,000 jobs directly and 131,000 jobs indirectly for the Sydney population.
