Perth International Airport goes from bad to worse. For outbound passengers the airport authority has put the narrow departure entrance in the middle of a group of fast food joints and a pub ensuring travellers do not have an easy entry. Once in the departure lounge there is only one place to get a drink or eat and it nothing more than another fast-food joint. Bad coffee cold snack food 2nd-rate retail. Inbound is chaos when two or more aircraft arrive together as they inevitably do. After immigration the fight for luggage begins but regardless of the fact that yours has been scanned before it or you got on the aircraft customs will almost certainly detain you for another inspection and open your cases and then put them through another radar scan! If you are lucky you can be out in 50 minutes. The secret to Perth Airport? Don't take checked bags.
