As a neighborhood resident and frequent consumer of Darwin Airport, I agree. There have been so many occasions once I’ve been on the terminal ready to catch flights at odd hours, like 2am and located not a single espresso store or restaurant open once I needed one thing to eat or drink. Till now, the selection of meals and beverage venues on the airport has additionally been very restricted, starting from a couple of quick meals venues to 1 high-end restaurant.
“I’d like to see extra eating places and even a greater bar on the airport,” stated one native Charles Darwin College scholar.
It’s not simply the addition of recent meals and beverage retailers that the airport wants to consider however preserving at the least a few of these retailers open in any respect hours. That’s the aggressive edge that top-tier airports like Changi in Singapore have over many Australian airports.

Within the worldwide terminal, Pronto by Maccinetta may also open quickly, and the Gliding Goose, Roll’d, Purple Rooster and Soul + Grain will all open later in 2022.
New facilities like these will definitely be a drawcard for worldwide and interstate vacationers visiting the Northern Territory and locals alike. However the query is, how sustainable will these facilities be in the long term? Worldwide and nationwide air journey stay unsure and unpredictable with ongoing public well being points like COVID 19 and, rising illnesses like Monkeypox. Not least as a result of these public well being points affect on workers’s capability to attend work, and this has been an enormous problem for the Northern Territory’s hospitality trade over the past 12 months or so. Right here’s hoping these thrilling new meals and beverage venues can open and function as deliberate.
