Australia’s top airports – Canberra doesn’t exist

By Felix the Cat - 3 February 2012 53

Mr Snow will be most upset to learn that the Daily Telegraph has an article titled Australia’s best – and worst – airports revealed and Canberra airport fails to even get a mention!

This oversight is quite understandable, it’s not like Canberra is anywhere important, it’s just the capital of Australia.

Here is the list of the top Australian airports:

Favourite Australian airports

    1. Melbourne
    2. Sydney
    3. Brisbane
    4. Gold Coast
    5. Adelaide
    6. Perth
    7. Darwin
    8. Hobart

What’s Your opinion?

Is Mr Snow going to build flats out there one day ? Be nice sittin out on the balcony with a good red watchin’ the planes take off. Have enough red and the noise won’t worry you.

Not going to read a Daily Telegraph article on airport lists. But Google ‘Sydney Airport worst’ or even ‘Australia airport worst’ for some opinions on Sydney Airport. Now it’s the 2nd favourite Australian airport…

I can’t find much to complain about the facilities at Canberra Airport. As airports go, it seems… functional.

As an airport, Sydney sucks. International transfers are a pain, the layout is inefficient, the parking is expensive.

Canberra has its parking problems, but otherwise I find it a pleasure to use, at least on the Qantas side. That’s now, anyway. For years and years it was a confusing nightmare of roadworks and potholes.

I drive out there most days and it is still a confusing nightmare of roadworks with not enough signage and the signage needs to be set further away to give more warning to people who don’t go there often.

Those wondering where they got the data could always click the link and find out…

Canberra’s not there because it’s in a category of it’s own, way below “worst”.

How odd

I don’t believe those figures, by what measure? Canberra and Cairns should have more passenger traffic than Hobart or Darwin.

Will they do a list of best/worst long distance bus stations? I’m sure the Jolimont Centre would get a guernsey.

Canberra has a shopping and office space precinct with a runway.

Who knows what they based that list on!

Cairns didn’t get a mention either and its a real international airport.

We have an airport?

And it’s an “International” one.

Maybe the list is a Work in Progress, like our airport
