Adelaide International airport will begin works to expand its apron space starting this month.

The 20,000sqm expansion at its southern apron will enable four more aircraft to be parked.

“The southern apron expansion will largely cater for aircraft that are ‘laying over’ for a longer period of time between arrivals and departures,” says the airport’s managing director Mark Young. “Moving these aircraft to the southern apron, once passengers have disembarked, then frees up more space at the terminal gates for other in-bound aircraft.”

Adelaide airport, which is located in the state of South Australia, adds that the project is due for completion in mid-2015.
