Melbourne Airport (also known as Tullamarine Airport) (IATA: MEL, ICAO: YMML) is to the north of the city, adjacent to the suburb of Tullamarine, Victoria, Australia. The airport has its own suburb boundaries with the area officially named Melbourne Airport and the postcode 3045.

The Melbourne suburb of Tullamarine, Victoria, Australia, is a collection of recent housing estates and light industry. It is located in the City of Hume.

Genearlly flat and exposed to the hot northerly winds of Melbourne's summer, its most notable feature is the nearby Melbourne Airport. Tullamarine's residential area is contained in a circular loop of the Moonee Ponds Creek, and its western boundary is the Melbourne Airport, originally called the Tullamarine Airport. Tullamarine contains the smaller residential area of Gladstone Park.

The Melbourne to Sydney railway line separates Tullamarine from Airport West to the south.

Melbourne Airport has four terminals. The international terminal (T2) has 16 gates (gates 12-16 are 'standoff' (or non-airbridge) gates). The three domestic terminals, T1 used exclusively by Qantas and its Jetstar subsidiary; the multi-user T3 primarily used by Virgin Blue; and the low-cost T4 which will be used by Tiger Airways Australia, have 46 gates between them. In the 2006-07 financial year over 22 million passengers used the airport.

Melbourne Airport passenger numbers have hit a record high, with the airport recording more than 20 million passengers in 2005. However recently numbers have been declining as a result of airlines leaving and existing airlines cutting capacity. Melbourne international passenger numbers were down 2% in the final quarter of 2006. Despite this, overall figures for the year until June 2007 showed that numbers improved, the airport receiving 22.5 million passengers, 4.5 million of those arriving from overseas.[2] Furthermore Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways announced an additional daily service to Melbourne, now three times daily, whilst Norfolk Island's Norfolk Air has announced a once-weekly Norfolk Island - Sydney - Melbourne - Norfolk Island service, to commence in October. There were 180,500 aircraft movements, the vast majority (151,200) being domestic passenger services. Melbourne Airport is currently the second busiest airport in Australia after Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney however is expected to be overtaken by Brisbane Airport in the future in terms of annual passenger numbers.[citation needed] The airport is curfew-free and operates 24 hours a day, although in practice there are few aircraft movements between midnight and 4 a.m, except freight aircraft.

The existing Skybus service was improved to compensate and remains the only available public transport service to the airport direct from the Melbourne CBD, the trip taking approximately 20 minutes from Southern Cross Station. A local daily bus service run by Tullamarine Bus Lines operates Route 478 between Moonee Ponds Junction and Melbourne Airport.
