With passenger traffic way down, Perth Airport is temporarily closing some of its terminals

Perth Airport is temporarily closing terminals as low passenger numbers put the airport under financial pressure. The airport has confirmed it will close T1 Domestic with all Virgin Australia services relocating next door to Terminal 2. On the other side of the airport, Terminal 3 will only be open Monday to Friday between 3.30 am and 8.00 am.

The T1 Virgin Australia terminal will close this weekend, with Terminal 3 reverting to its scaled back hours from Monday, February 7. Perth Airport is shunting Virgin Australia services next door to the far less salubrious and considerably smaller Terminal 2.
