"We're currently planning to develop T2 International," Ms Argus said.

"For anyone who arrives into Melbourne today, that area the arrivals hall is quite constrained, so we're looking at a large expansion thereof the international terminal to really bring us up to the world's best class that people expect when they're travelling internationally today

"We're looking at a completely new transport hub which will see all of the pick up and drop off integrated into the front of the terminal, actually using some of the car park you see today in T1, 2, 3 - we will take out car spaces to create drop off and pick up our passenger flows which will give us a lot more space and free up that forecourt area for the next five to 10 years."

Ms Argus said the airport was also preparing for rail line.

The state and federal governments have both committed to an airport train and business case is expected for it in September.
