The first look at the new Gold Coast Airport terminal has been revealed, with construction now underway on the southern terminal expansion.

As well as development of a new Rydges airport hotel, a new double-storey southern terminal is under construction with a virtual reality flythrough showing a new arrival experience, including aerobridges, duty free retail space and a landscaped forecourt area within steps of the new hotel.

Queensland Airports Limited CEO Chris Mills said the projects, which are worth around $500 million, would generate 1,500 jobs from the construction alone.

The new terminal is on track to open in 2021. Watch the flythrough video here.
