About the heading Airports and Airport Services in Yellow Pages®
An airport is a location where aircraft including aeroplanes and helicopters take off, land and are refuelled and maintained. Aeroplanes and helicopters are used to transport passengers, cargo, and mail to international, overseas, and domestic destinations. Airports may also provide pilot training and flying club services. Australia has major airports in all capital cities as well as many domestic airports in smaller cities or country areas.
Passengers who fly internationally and domestically are restricted in the amount of luggage they can carry. Different airlines have different luggage requirements. These requirements can be checked by contacting your travel agent or by ringing the airline directly. Passengers need to be aware that when travelling by plane they will be required to go through security checks to ensure that they are not carrying dangerous or hazardous goods into, or out of, Australia. Australia has strict quarantine rules about the types of goods that can be brought into Australia and these rules can be located on the major airport web sites.
Apart from flights, airports provide a variety of different passenger services. These services are generally leased out to businesses and might include airport parking, shopping, car rental, as well as internet, banking and EFTPOS facilities. Passengers flying internationally can purchase duty free products at airports including designer goods, perfumes and a variety of cosmetic and electronic products. Airports have disabled facilities and provide assistance for people with special needs. They also have personnel who are available to help wheelchair bound passengers board flights. Check with the airport to find out what facilities are available. If you are looking for information on airports and/or airport services look under this heading in Yellow Pages®.
