Melbourne airportMelbourne Airport’s new Terminal 4 was officially opened this morning, with Federal Treasurer, The Hon. Scott Morrison MP unveiling a plaque to celebrate Australia’s newest domestic terminal.

The new Terminal 4 (T4) was opened to passengers in two stages over the past few months as final touches to the customer experience, look and feel were completed.

Melbourne Airport welcomed Tigerair Australia to its new home on Tuesday 18 August, and Jetstar relocated from Terminal 1 on Tuesday 10 November. Regional Express Airlines currently arrives at T4 and will move its check-in facilities to the new terminal in early 2016.

T4 is located to the south of Terminal 3 built on 20,000 sqm over three levels and can accommodate up to 10 million passengers a year.

Since the T4 doors opened in mid-August, almost 1.1 million passengers have been the first to enjoy the state-of-the-art facilities.

T4’s check-in process incorporates the latest technology and is the world’s first terminal to open as a complete self-service operation. Coupled with automated bag drop facilities, the streamlined process provides passengers with a quick and easy start to their journey.

On Level 1, a shopping and dining experience awaits in the departure lounge where more than 30 retail, food and beverage stores have opened.

All tastes and budgets are covered from household names like Country Road and Rip Curl, Boost and McDonalds, the iconic Brunetti, and the Melbourne Airport-exclusive Two John’s Taphouse which serves up local pub food and beverages.

Getting to and from the new T4 has also been made easy with car parking, drop-off, pick-up, buses and taxis all under the one roof at the new transport hub, located only a few minutes’ walk away.
