The first stage of the WIAL terminal extension opened in April. A fantastic effort to the Hawkins team and indeed all subtrades involved.
Walking through the new part of the terminal is an experience and it is amazing how many travellers take the time to stop and look at the laminated 'X' beams. Many travellers are even touching and smelling the timber.
The $58m extension will lengthen the terminal building by 30m and will provide greater lounge space, additional food and beverage offerings, and will also double the number of toilets.
