Opened in 1970 to replace the nearby Essendon Airport, Melbourne Airport (MEL) is the sole international airport of the four airports serving the Melbourne metropolitan area. The airport is 23 km drive from the city centre and is adjacent to the suburb of Tullamarine. It is actually the second busiest airport in Australia.
