Canberra Airport


Canberra Airport is located seven kilometres east of Canberra’s CBD - only about 10 minutes from the city centre by car. The airport has set itself the goal to become the “best small airport in the world.” Canberra Airport also has a commitment to design and public art; something that can be observed all throughout the sleekly designed terminal.

Canberra Airport has been awarded a handful of honours in recent years. It was named ‘Capital City Airport of the Year’ by the Australian Airport Association in 2013, and it was rated ‘Best Australian Airport’ by Australian Business Traveller in 2015. The Australian Institute of Architects presented two awards to Canberra Airport in 2016: a Commercial Architecture Award and Interior Architecture Award.
