Here's some handy information on South Australia's Adelaide Airport (IATA code ADL), sourced from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adelaide_Airport):
Adelaide Airport is the principal airport in the South Australian capital of Adelaide and the fifth busiest airport in Australia, servicing over 6.7 million passengers in 2007/08. Located adjacent to West Beach, it is approximately 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from the city-centre. It has been operated privately by Adelaide Airport Limited under a long-term lease from the Commonwealth Government since 1998.
First established in 1955, a new dual international/domestic terminal was opened in 2005 which has received numerous awards, including being named the world's second-best international airport (5-15 million passengers) in 2006.
The new airport terminal is approximately 850 metres (2,800 ft) end to end and is capable of handling 27 aircraft, including the Airbus A380, simultaneously and processing 3,000 passengers per hour.
