Perth International Airport has revealed $1.25bn redevelopment plans as part of a major revamp of the airport before 2020.

Perth International Airport, Australia, is to undergo a A$1.25bn redevelopment plan as part of a major revamp leading up to 2020.

The three phases of work announced so far involve the addition of a new terminal with 16 check-in counters and 14 aircraft gates, and will cost A$750m.

The baggage claim and quarantine inspection areas on the ground floor will be expanded and approximately A$170m will be spent on car parks, roads, taxiways and aprons.

The second phase of the project, which will cost A$500m, will add a new integrated terminal complex to be linked to the multistorey carpark and a new hotel.

Construction is also underway on the new A$120m domestic terminal.

Work on a A$160m project to add a new extension at the western end of the international terminal will begin next year and be completed in 2014.
