2014 Master Plan

The Future of Brisbane Airport Has Been Revealed

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has released its 2014 Preliminary Draft Master Plan for public comment. BAC’s vision is for Brisbane Airport to be world best and the preferred choice for passengers, airlines, business and the community.


Every five years, major airports in Australia are required to submit a Master Plan to the Australian Government. The Master Plan details all development at the airport for the next 20 years, covering passenger growth, job creation and the construction of the new runway, as well as significant investment in other aviation infrastructure, roads and terminals.


Public comment period

The draft Master Plan is now available for the community to view and provide comment on during a 60 business-day public comment period, which ends on Thursday, 26 June 2014. Once the community has had the opportunity to comment on the Master Plan, it will be submitted to the Australian Government for approval.



Public displays: Speak to the Master Plan team in-person at the following sessions:

  • Thursday 8 May: Skygate Precinct at The Circuit, Brisbane Airport (next to Woolworths) 5.30pm to 7.30pm
