Sydney airport: Making your way around

If you haven’t flown into Sydney before, you might be wondering where to go when you get to the terminals. When it comes to drop off and pick up points, your options are many and varied. To help you decide, we have a few of your options listed here. If you’re travelling from the domestic terminals, you can choose from three pick up spots on your arrival.

These are: priority, express and Blue Emu pick up. Priority is the closest and quickest – hence the name. It is just 4 minutes’ walk from the terminal, although it will cost at least $4. Then you have express, which is 8 minutes’ walk, and Blue Emu, which is a short shuttle trip from the terminals. If you are leaving from the domestic terminals, drop off occurs on the departures level of each complex.

The international terminal has slightly fewer options for arriving passengers. You can go to the arrivals level of the terminal, or you can go to the express pick up section in the P9 car park. We normally recommend the second option, as it offers 15 minutes’ free waiting. If you are departing internationally, all you need to do is go to the departures level of the international terminal. There are plenty of kerbside spaces there to use including designated disabled spaces.
