Melbourne Airport has been named as the best place to catch a flight in Australia.

Travellers planning to book flights to Melbourne could be pleased to hear that the city’s airport has been named as the best place to travel from in Australia.

A study carried out among 32,000 Australians by travel site found that the terminal in the city was the most popular, scoring 29.5 per cent of the votes.

It just pipped Sydney Airport to second place, which gained 27 per cent of the overall vote and Brisbane Airport was named as the third most popular with 16.5 per cent.

However, Hobart Airport may now be planning to make some changes to its services, as it picked up just two per cent of the votes.

Commenting on Melbourne’s win, Megan Magill, general brand manager at the website, said: “The airport is quite compact and efficiently designed, with good shopping, restaurants and bars making waiting for your flight a lot more enjoyable.”

There is a great deal more to tempt people to take flights to Melbourne than just its airport, with the city set to host its popular Fashion Festival during March.
