Kerrie Mather, Sydney Airport managing director and CEO, welcomed the next phase of terminal improvements, which follows the transformation of the airport’s casual dining precinct.
“We’ve had such fantastic feedback about our new T2 casual dining precinct and I look forward to seeing the terminal’s continued transformation as part of our commitment to enhance the customer experience,” Mather said.
“These improvements will deliver a consistent look and feel across the terminal, with a greater sense of space and light.”
Mather said the new T2 Domestic terminal will have better wayfinding and improved sightlines.
“Exciting new retail concepts and relaxing dwell areas will create more ambience,” she said.
The improvements will see the introduction of 10 new retail tenancies to deliver a revitalised mix of lifestyle brands for visitors.
Areas of the terminal will be expanded and redesigned to create dwell areas with upgraded flooring, columns, lighting, ceiling finishes, and contemporary furniture with textural finishes. There will also be significant upgrades to key bathroom amenities across T2 while a new mezzanine level will offer additional commercial floor space.
The next stage of retail and dwell area improvements were designed by Australian design firm Landini Associates and follows the revitalised T2 casual dining precinct.
The precinct features first-to-Australia offerings, sushi brand YO! Sushi and popular Danish juice bar concept Joe & The Juice, as well as Krispy Kreme and Soul Origin.
The next stage of works are due for completion by end of 2018.
Last month, Country Road opened its first menswear pop-up store at the domestic terminal.
