Flights to Adelaide
What to know before you fly to Adelaide?
If you’re travelling to Adelaide in the summer, be ready for warm weather which can occasionally get very hot, but not as humid as other Australian cities. Frosts are common in the Adelaide Hills during winter so pack for the cold if you’re visiting the wineries at this time of year.
Adelaide also has a thriving festival season around February and March, so book your flights well in advance if this is when you plan to visit. Getting around Adelaide is a breeze, with the streets to this compact, pedestrian-friendly city arranged in a grid-like pattern. There’s an interconnecting network of buses, trains and trams, and taxis and rideshare options are also plentiful.
Airports in Adelaide
Adelaide Airport is the international and domestic gateway to South Australia, with over 8 million passengers passing through its gates last year. From the airport, the city centre is just a 20-minute drive away, and a taxi journey will cost around $25.
Both shuttles and public buses run daily between the airport and the CBD, while hiring a car from the airport could be the perfect option if you plan to venture beyond the city.
