International Airport is a train station located on the Airport Link, serving Terminal 1 at Sydney Airport, Australia. Terminals 2 and 3 are served by Domestic Airport station. The line is operated by Sydney Trains with T8 Airport & South line services.

History[edit]

International Airport station opened on 21 May 2000 when the Airport Link opened from Central to Wolli Creek.[2] Like other stations on the line, International Airport was built and is operated by the Airport Link Company as part of a public–private partnership.[3]

As part of the contract to build the line, an access fee is levied to recover the costs of building the line. Although often perceived as all going to the Airport Link Company, under the revenue sharing agreement, from August 2014 85% of revenues raised by the access fee go to the State Government.[4]
