Kingsford Smith Airport is the only airport in Sydney. It's pretty old, built in 1920. Previously it bore the name of the city, but in 1953 it was decided to rename it in honour of one of the pioneers of Australian aviation. Initially, the airport had two small runways, which are called in accordance with the direction of flights: "North-South" and "East-West". With the increase of passenger traffic it was decided to extend runways and to build one extra. Now the airport of Sydney is the major on the continent and is capable of servicing even the largest passenger aircraft such as Boeing. There is curfew break at night, meaning that flights of jet aircraft are prohibited from 11 pm to 6 am. Such measures were taken to reduce noise level on the area near airport. Sydney Airport is located near Mascot district, which is 8 kilometres away from downtown in a picturesque place on the northern shore of Botany Bay. Upon arriving to airport don't hurry to leave it soon. Here you can take free city maps and guides, which will be useful to you. One line of the metro connects the airport with the city centre, so it is easy to get to the heart of Sydney. What is more exciting, underground trains here are two-storey!
