Virgin Australia's new Perth lounge and Terminal

Travel News 19 Nov 2015

At the height of the mining boom Perth Airport's prognosis, at least domestically, was, well, terminal with crowded and outdated arrival and departure halls, poor facilities and lengthy taxi queues.

But, with the fizzing out of the boom, and with high-vis vests a lot less visible out west these days, this weekend is set to see the opening to the public of Virgin Australia's brand new Perth T1 domestic terminal, Australia's newest and possibly most stylish.

In design terms alone, Virgin's new terminal is set to give Qantas's lauded domestic equivalent in Sydney a runway for its money.

Virgin passengers arriving and departing in the Western Australia capital will be greeted by an all black, red, silver purple-toned state-of-the-art facility by architects Woods Bagot.
