The Alice Springs Airport (ASP) is located 14 kilometers to the south of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. The airport only schedules domestic flights from cities around Australia; however some international flights can be specially chartered to the airport. Despite its relatively small size the airport services over six-hundred thousand passengers every year thanks to its proximity to the Australian outback and the famous tourist attraction, Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock). With a large amount of tourists passing through the Alice Springs Airport (ASP) there is pressure for the airport to maintain a high standard of facilities and amenities in order to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for both domestic and international travelers. Taxi services are available outside of the terminal building and Alice Springs hotels will often provide transportation to the door of your accommodation if you inform them of your arrival in advance. The road and rail services to Alice Springs from elsewhere in Australia are very lengthy and can be somewhat uncomfortable in the high temperatures of the desert. So the Alice Springs Airport (ASP) is a very important connection and travel destination for the community to the rest of the country.
