If you’re arriving at Melbourne Airport during the morning or evening peak hour, you could be in for a brief delay – usually ten minutes or so – due to traffic.

At whichever Melbourne Airport terminal you arrive, your Lilydale transfer will be ready

Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine consists of four separate terminals, which each offer unique transit services. Given that the airport is so large, it can be a little daunting to navigate at times. However, you needn’t worry. Melbourne Airport’s four terminals are all serviced by a host of collection, drop off, waiting, and parking zones. In fact, you probably won’t need to walk more than one hundred meters from your terminal entrance to meet your transfer. In addition, there are kerbside spaces with disabled access for those who require it. Rest assured that no matter which terminal you arrive at, Hughes will be waiting nearby.
