Melbourne Airport (MEL) Destination and Airport Guide

From its famed street art and thriving music and theater scene to its world-class restaurants and coffee culture, the city offers a unique and immersive experience for visitors. Melbourne impresses with architecture, lush parks, and proximity to beautiful coastal landscapes. Pre-booking your airport transport or shuttle service makes accessing the city's top attractions a breeze.

Melbourne Airport is around 15 miles north of the city on a busy, unremarkable freeway. While the airport is easy enough to navigate, stepping out can be confusing, with various transport options and the occasional tout scattered widely in all directions. Arranging a reliable and convenient Melbourne Airport transfer dials down the stress immediately. 

Book numerous transportation options with Jayride, and you’ll find navigating the bustling airport and reaching your Melbourne destination completely stress free.

Whether you're traveling solo or with a group, private airport transfers offer a seamless and luxurious experience. Jayride lets you choose from 24 professional Melbourne Airport shuttle transport services. You'll be greeted by a professional driver who will assist with your luggage and transport you directly to your desired destination in a car, van or even a limousine. 

Melbourne airport transfers to the city center offer convenience and comfort for travelers. Many services provide booster seats so that small children can safely travel with their families, and they may also offer pick-up and drop-off times according to your flight schedule. Airport shuttle buses provide a reliable way to get from the airport to the city center, offering door-to-door service at an affordable rate.

Before booking, double-check which terminal you’ll arrive in. MEL has 4 terminals. 

T1 Domestic Terminal
T2 International Terminal
T3 Domestic Terminal
T4 Domestic Terminal

Note that there can be long walks from some terminals (T4 is notorious), but travelers can easily walk between all terminals.

Not really. Locals will roll their eyes at talk of airport rail. There’s a suburban bus that gets you fairly close to the airport, but private transport is really your only option.

Melbourne’s much smaller second airport is at Avalon, 36 miles west of the city. The trip can take a long time in traffic. All the same, prices are usually cheaper if you fly into Avalon. The vast majority of flights are to and from Melbourne Airport.

The private Skybus service runs a shuttle the almost hour-long trip between the airports. If you’re in a group, have a bit of luggage or don’t want to wait around, pre-book an inter-airport private car with Jayride.

The airport sprawls across four terminals. Most are close to each other in the one large building, with T4 a bit of a walk (especially if you're arriving or departing from Gate 41 or higher).

Yes, pre-book with Jayride and secure a spot on a private shuttle. Jayride partner companies offer shuttles to various central Melbourne destinations.
