More room needed for Sydney domestic lounge

Sydney Airport has been forced to expand the departure lounge in its Domestic Express Terminal ahead of the scheduled Easter upgrade due to the rapid growth of new airlines Virgin Blue and Impulse. The increased influx of domestic passengers has been brought about by increased competition as airlines offer discount fares in a bid to lure customers. However, industry analysts are undecided as to whether the new airlines will be able to last in the cut-throat market.
