Recommended browsers

Content and presentation are separated on the Melbourne Airport website via the use of CSS. This means that the content is accessible in any internet device, even if it does not understand CSS.

A modern Web browser is recommended to view the intended visual presentation of the Melbourne Airport website: older browsers offer poor support for standards and often incorrectly interpret newer CSS code. For this reason, these browsers are presented with the unstyled plain content instead.

Our recommended browsers are Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari.
