Air­port upgrade good news for fam­i­lies

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

AN ex­cit­ing new play area and eatery have touched down at the Perth Air­port de­par­tures lounge as part of the $12.5 mil­lion ex­pan­sion.

The 927sq m ex­pan­sion at the east­ern end of the level two de­par­tures lounge in­cludes con­tem­po­rary food and bev­er­age out­let Hay­mar­ket and the new chil­dren’s play area.

“We wanted to cre­ate an area specif­i­cally for fam­i­lies where par­ents can re­lax in com­fort­able seat­ing, while their chil­dren play close by in a safe area,” Perth Air­port’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Brad Geatches said.

“Nav­i­gat­ing check-in, im­mi­gra­tion and se­cu­rity screen­ing can take the shine off the start to a fam­ily hol­i­day, so in this area par­ents can de-stress be­fore their flight.”

Perth Air­port is also un­der­tak­ing a $54 mil­lion makeover of the T1 fore­court, which in­cludes a 27 me­tre land­scaped plaza with food out­lets and four new retail shops.

This pro­ject will be com­pleted to­wards the end of 2016.
