Western Syd Air­port Pre­view

Travel Daily - - News -

REN­DERS of what the Western Syd­ney Air­port will look like have been re­leased to the public for the first time.

The de­signs are the re­sult of a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Lon­don­based Zaha Ha­did Ar­chi­tects and Cox Ar­chi­tec­ture in Syd­ney.

“The brief was to de­sign an air­port that the peo­ple of Western Syd­ney can be proud of and pro­vide a real sense of place with a fo­cus on the cus­tomer jour­ney and ef­fi­cien­cies for air­lines,” said Western Syd­ney Air­port Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Gra­ham Mil­lett.

“The lay­out of the ter­mi­nal, com­bin­ing in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic op­er­a­tions un­der one roof, will come to­gether with tech­nol­ogy and out­stand­ing cus­tomer ser­vice to give op­er­a­tors and their pas­sen­gers a re­li­able, fun and stress-free air­port ex­pe­ri­ence,” he added.

The new avi­a­tion hub will cater for up to 10 mil­lion pas­sen­gers per year when it opens in 2026, with plans to grow the ca­pac­ity in stages over the following decades to even­tu­ally be­come the largest gate­way to Aus­tralia at 82 mil­lion pas­sen­gers per year.

Sus­tain­abil­ity is also a key theme of the de­sign, in­cor­po­rat­ing nat­u­ral air­flows and ef­fi­cient so­lar shad­ing.

Qan­tas and Vir­gin Aus­tralia will also have an op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute to the fi­nal look of Western Syd­ney Air­port, sign­ing a Mem­o­randa of Un­der­stand­ing with the fa­cil­ity to con­trib­ute to the op­er­a­tional de­sign.

“Build­ing a green­field air­port in con­sul­ta­tion with air­lines means we can pro­vide an op­ti­mal op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment that is cus­tomer cen­tric,” Mil­lett said.
