Terminal Information – Departing

This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.

Air Canada, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic all fly from terminal 1. Qantas and Emirates depart from terminal 3. Free Wi-Fi is available through a Boingo hotspot in both terminals, with 60 minutes free for every passenger. There are also complimentary showers available in the departure halls and various smoking lounges for those who need a quick cigarette before boarding. The airport has a massive range of places to eat and drink, including global names like Starbucks as well as Irish favourite Butler's Chocolate Cafe. There are 80 cafes, restaurants and snack bars in total so you certainly won't go hungry. If you aren't all shopped-out after visiting Dubai's mega malls, you'll find plenty of places to splash your cash in both departure halls. Airline lounges are available for business and first class travellers on certain airlines. If you're travelling on an economy ticket you can pay to access the Marhaba Lounge (there's one in each terminal).

Terminal Information – Arriving

Public transport is not available from Sydney Airport. Private transfers can be arranged in advance with local taxi company City Wide Taxi. Alternatively you can hire a car at Sydney Airport. Agencies operating from there include Avis, Budget, National and Enterprise.

Practical Information

We recommend arriving at the airport at least two and a half hours before your flight is scheduled to depart. Citizens of the UAE need a visa to visit or transit through Canada. British citizens don't need a visa to visit Canada for a short trip, but will need to apply for electronic travel authorisation (eTA) before flying. If you're planning to emigrate, work, or study in Nova Scotia we recommend speaking to your nearest Canadian embassy.
