Sydney insider flight tips

  • Sydney Kingsford Smith is Sydney's domestic and international airport.
  • Some domestic flights depart from the international terminal so it's important to check before you arrive and ensure you leave enough time to get to the airport as Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport can be extremely busy at times.

How to get around Sydney from the airport

The Airport Link Railway Line gets you to the city in approximately 20 minutes for around $18, while the airport shuttle bus services like Viator and Jayride can provide door-to-door transfers from $15 one way. Car rental desks are available at all terminals. Alternatively, Uber can drop you off at the private passenger drop-off but is not available from regular taxi ranks.
