In December 2011, Sydney Airport announced a proposal to divide the airport into two districts based on the Airline Alliance. Integration of international, national and regional services under one roof by 2019. The current National Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 would be used by Qantas, Jetstar and members of the oneworld alliance, while the current International Terminal 1 would be used by Virgin Australia and its international partners. Other international airlines would continue to operate from T1.  In 2002, the Commonwealth Government sold Sydney Airport Corporation (SAC) for $5.4 billion to Southern Cross Airports Corporation Holdings Ltd. 83% of sac is owned by MAp Airports International Limited, a subsidiary of the Macquarie Group, Sydney Airport Intervest GmbH owns 12% and Ontario Teachers` Australia Trust 5%.  SACL holds a 99-year lease for the airport, which remains Kronland and is considered a leased federal airport.  In September 2012, Kerrie Mather, CEO of Sydney Airport and Chief Executive Officer, announced that the airport had abandoned the proposal to create alliance-based terminals in favor of terminals “based on specific airline requirements and (passenger) transfer flows.” She said the plan was to minimize the number of passengers passing between terminals.  In June 2013, the airport published a draft 2013 master plan proposing the operation of domestic and international flights from the same terminals equipped with “Swing Gates” and the modernization of Terminal 3 (currently the domestic Qantas terminal) for the Airbus A380.   Sydney Airport has road connections in all directions. Southern Cross Drive (M1), a highway, is the fastest way to connect to the city center. The M5 South Western Motorway (including the M5 East Freeway) connects the airport to Sydney`s south-western suburbs.
A ring road goes around the airport, including Airport Drive, Qantas Drive, General Holmes Drive, M5 East Freeway and Marsh Street. General Holmes Drive has a tunnel under the north-south main lane and three lanes of traffic, as well as access to an aircraft vision area. Pier C is used by Virgin Australia and its partners (including Delta) as well as all Star Alliance members. There are also a number of secluded bays that are heavily used at peak times and for parking unused aircraft during the day. . . .
