Default Sydney Airport - Centenary Celebrations - SYD100, 2019

Centenary celebrations at Sydney Airport launched this week with SYDStories, an interactive online portal that captures the rich history of Sydney Airport...

On the platform you’ll find:

- A bunch of really cool photos, stories and memorabilia about the airport and aviation
- A timeline of every airline that has ever flown to Sydney Airport
- A wonderful video of Nigel Coghlan chit chatting about the awesome things he’d seen over the years

SYDStories tells the story of some of the key moments in the history of aviation, Sydney Airport and Australia and the people who made them happen.

Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert said the airport’s centenary was an incredible milestone.

“SYDStories is an important reflection on the role we’ve played in Sydney’s growth over the past century and celebrates the many people who have been part of the evolution of the airport,” Mr Culbert said.

“From Nigel Love’s solitary flight in 1919 carrying Billy Marshall, we’ve grown to accommodate more than 44 million passengers, with an on-airport community of more than 32,000.” Sydney Airport’s runways have welcomed the ‘Southern Cross’ in 1928 to a crowd of 300,000 people, Australia’s first jetliner in 1955, the supersonic Concorde in 1972 and the world’s first commercial A380 passenger flight in 2007.

From greeting The Beatles with thousands of screaming fans huddled in the pouring rain, to a short serenade from Louis Armstrong upon his arrival, the airport has connected Sydney to the world throughout its 100-year history.

“The next 100 years at Sydney’s Airport will be a story of ultra-long range travel by supersonic, hypersonic and yet-to-be-conceived aircraft to continue the tourism, trade and economic growth of the best city in the world,” Mr Culbert said.

“This year we’ll welcome our billionth passenger. Our focus today and over the next 100 years is on making the journey better for our customers.”
