Terminal 1 map Sydney Airport

With the Sydney Airport being the busiest in its region, it makes sense that the airport is divided into more than one terminal to accommodate for the great number of passengers who choose to fly to or from the SYD yearly.

The distribution of passengers into three different terminals allows for less traffic at each terminal and at each point through the journey across the airport. The first terminal operates international flights mostly, while the other two mostly operate domestic flights, giving more logic and sense to the distribution of visitors.

International Terminal 1 Sydney Airport

T1 International Departures

Although this terminal mostly handles the international flights coming into and flying out of Sydney Airport, it also operates a handful of domestic flights.

All the arrivals to Terminal 1 are greeted at the first level, where they also have access to passport control, baggage claim, and then on to the parking lots and the ground transportation zone.

Meanwhile the departing passengers should be heading to the second level, where they will find the check-in counters and the flight gates.
The third level is dedicated mainly to lounges and offices and there has a quieter overall environment.

Traveling between terminals

There are a plethora of options to choose from when deciding to travel between terminals at the SYD like the Link Train and the T-Bus, to name a few. However, you must keep in mind that T1 Sydney Airport is located slightly further from the rest of the two terminals, and it therefore requires longer traveling time.

This should be taken into consideration when planning your journey through the SYD.
