Adelaide Airport has recently received State and national awards for very different aspects of its business - from runway resurfacing to T1 retail promotions.
In October, Adelaide Airport Limited (AAL) won a major national project management award for our work on resurfacing the airport’s main runways and taxiways earlier this year.
AAL was recognised for the complex logistical task of laying 60,000 tonnes of asphalt - the equivalent of re-sealing a 40km stretch of highway. All work had to be carried out at night during curfew hours, and the runway had to be ready for use every morning at 6.00am for the first flight departures. Not one single flight was delayed - a remarkable effort!
Meanwhile, AAL has again excelled at the Property Council of Australia (SA) Shopping Centre Awards. We received gongs for all three categories in which we were nominated – namely Excellence in Presentation, Excellence in Sustainability and Excellence in Marketing (working with the community).
