About Perth International Airport Arrivals

Perth Airport (IATA abbreviation: PER), is Australia’s fourth busiest airport. With 14.809.950 passengers in 2019, Perth airport is relatively small. It’s located in the west of Australia. It’s about 8-10 miles to the center of the city, depending on which terminal you are.

Ground transportation

The journey can be made by bus, among other things. After Perth international airport arrivals at terminal 1 or 2 you can travel by bus (line 380) to the center in 45 minutes. If you have Perth arrivals at terminal 3 or 4, you will be able to travel with bus 40 to Elisabeth Quay bus station. It is a 35-minute drive from here. The price is 5 AUD. There are also many taxis to the center. This is a lot faster but of course also a bit more expensive. Another alternative is to drive yourself if you have parked your own car in a parking lot or are renting a car from Europcar, Thrifty or Avis.


Flight arrivals Perth at the terminal

Before you arrive at the airport, it is useful to know which airline you are departing from to determine at which terminal you will have to depart. Conversely, it is useful to inform your family or friends at which pick-up location they can pick you up.

  • Terminal 1 is for all international Perth flight arrivals. Where there are normally more than 4 million international passengers, the corona pandemic has caused this to fall to below million in 2020 and a further average decrease is likely to come in 2021. With far fewer PER arrivals, terminal 1 is therefore a lot quieter than usual. The Perth arrivals hall is on the ground floor. Pick up area is just in front of the terminal. Airlines that can be seen a lot here: Air New Zealand (Auckland and Christchurch), AisAsia, All Nippon Airways (Tokyo), Garuda Indonesia, AirAsia, Citilink and Batik Air (Bali Denpasar), Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong), Emirates (Dubai), Malasia Airlines, Malindo Air, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, Scoot, South African Airways. Virgin Australia also has some interstate and regional services here.


  • Terminal 2 is used by Virgin Australia. Alliance Airlines, Tigerair and Regional Express Airlines also operate flights here. There are not only Perth airport arrivals from the major cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, but also Darwin, Hobart, Alice Springs and the smaller ones Argyle, Boolgeeda, Busselton, Albany, Barrow Island, Kalgoorlie, Broome and Newman. The baggage claim is on the ground floor where the check-in and departures lounge is located.
  • Terminal 3 and 4 are located in the same building, some distance from the first two terminals. This is like terminal 2 also a domestic terminal. The difference is in the use of the airlines. Here the Perth flight arrivals are operated by Jetstar and Qantas.

Free shuttle buses run between the terminals.
