The Sydney Airport was the originating departure location of Flight 815. Several flashback scenes feature the airport as the survivors-to-be (including featured cast and even some extras) converge to their shared fate.



Flashback scenes taking place at Sydney Airport:

  • "White Rabbit": Jack argues with the ticket agent Chrissy about his father's remains.
  • "House of the Rising Sun": Sun almost leaves Jin at the airport, but due to a tender gesture makes a last minute decision not to. This scene is set concurrently with Jack's flashback from "White Rabbit".
  • "Two for the Road": Ana Lucia overhears Jack arguing with Chrissy and tries to call her mother in Los Angeles. This scene is set concurrently with the flashback from "White Rabbit".
  • "Exodus, Part 1": Ana Lucia follows Jack to the airport bar and strikes up a flirtatious conversation, but is interrupted by her ringing phone.
  • "Two for the Road": Ana Lucia responds to her mother's call and tells her she wants to come home.
  • "Exodus, Part 1": Sayid briefly speaks with Shannon and asks her to watch his travel bag. She then walks away with Boone and tells an airport cop that an "Arab" had put his bags down and walked away.
  • "Exodus, Part 1": Jin and Sun are having a dinner at the airport cafeteria when Sun accidentally spills coffee over Jin's shirt. They're watched by a couple that mocks Sun's submissive behavior, unaware that Sun understands their conversation.
  • "Exodus, Part 2": Sayid is released by the cop in a public area of the airport, while Jin heads for a bathroom to clean his shirt. He encounters a man in the bathroom who works for his father-in-law, warning Jin not to try to run off with his wife.
  • "Exodus, Part 2": Marshal Mars recaps Kate's story, including the relevance of the toy airplane, to an airport security agent to explain why he needs four guns on the plane. Kate has a short violent outbreak, but is quickly overpowered by Mars.
  • "S.O.S.": Rose meets Locke in a wheelchair in the departure gate lobby.
  • "?": Charlotte Malkin approaches Eko to deliver Yemi's message. Libby interrupts when Eko briefly loses his temper.
  • "Exposé": Nikki and Paulo are sharing a toast in the airport cafeteria following the killing of Howard Zukerman and have a brief encounter with Boone and Shannon.
  • "Exodus, Part 2": Locke is one of the first passengers to board Oceanic Flight 815. Because the special wheelchair used to carry disabled passengers on board is missing, JD and Michelle have to carry him themselves.
  • "Exodus, Part 2": Hurley overcomes a series of mishaps, including an argument about his seat with a ticket agent and a brief encounter with Leslie Arzt, and manages to make his flight just in time.

Deleted flashback scenes taking place at Sydney Airport:

  • "Exodus, Part 1": Sayid wants to buy a necktie for his reunion with Nadia, but is arrested by airport security after Shannon reported him.
  • "Exodus, Part 2": Claire meets the pilot of Oceanic Flight 815 and tells him about the psychic that suggested her to give her baby up for adoption to a couple in Los Angeles.

Other scenes at Sydney Airport that are not flashbacks:

  • "Further Instructions" : During a drug-induced vision, Boone carts Locke around the airport telling him that one person is in danger. All the main characters during that time except Juliet (who Locke hasn't met) are seen, with Hurley working as a ticket agent, Desmond as a pilot and Ben as a security guard.

  • The Hawaii Convention Center, whose glass architecture and long escalators have a striking similarity to an airport, serves as the real world filming location used to depict the Sydney Airport.
  • The real Sydney airport looks nothing like the Sydney Airport shown in the show. Several minor mistakes are made throughout the series as well. For example, in "Exodus, Part 2" while Hurley is running for his flight, he sees a that sign says "Gates 23 thru 40." The "thru" term is seldom used in Australia, and never at airports. The sign should say "Gates 23-40." Furthermore, in one scene in "Exodus, Part 2", Hurley can be seen passing by a door with the word "Kamehameha" above it (the Hawaii Convention Center exhibit hall sign in the real world), thereby giving it away as a place on Hawaii.
