A smooth landing for uberX at Adelaide Airport

August 10, 2017 / Adelaide

We’re pleased to offer simple, safe and hassle-free uberX pickup arrangements for passengers arriving at Adelaide Airport from today.

With the support of Adelaide Airport, we’re switching on technology that will allow driver-partners on the Uber app to collect riders from a designated rideshare pickup zone just two minutes from the terminal exit.

The launch of uberX at the airport comes in response to strong demand, with thousands of arriving passengers opening the Uber app to look for a ride out of Adelaide Airport every week.

Uber Head of Australian Cities Tom White hailed the agreement as a win for choice and the travelling public.

“Modern travellers like the convenience of using the apps they know and trust when they go abroad or interstate these days,” Mr White said.

“We’ve worked closely with the airport to ensure our technology makes ground connections in Adelaide simple and safe for arriving passengers.

“These airport pickups will be welcome news for local travellers and new visitors to the city, who can now request a safe, affordable and reliable uberX ride out of the airport at the push of a button.”

Riders from 70 different countries have opened the Uber app to look for a ride out of Adelaide Airport.
