BNE Terminal Upgrades
BNE's International Terminal redevelopment is set for a $45 million transformation making it one of the most ambitious projects since the terminal first opened in 1995.The terminal will establish a global benchmark for design and create a truly unique gateway to Queensland. It will feature a distinctly Brisbane design and additional space to showcase local retailers. We want the terminal to have a real sense of the destination and community they serve. This terminal will authentically reflect the character of Brisbane and the spirit of Queensland, while providing the very best hello and goodbye for travellers.
What will contribute to creating a 'Uniquely Brisbane' space?
- A new themed departures lounge which incorporates a sense of place that is uniquely Brisbane
- An arrivals area that incorporates a vibrant artwork into the architecture
- An orientation zone that includes a 'goodbye wall' and a text-based artwork
- Many more features, including relaxation, work and play areas blended into an upgraded retail and dining environment.
Construction is scheduled to begin February 2014 with completion in mid 2015. The redevelopment will be completed in stages to ensure day-to-day operations continue as usual.

BNE Development Strategy
Brisbane Airport has recently delivered multiple upgrades in and around the Domestic Terminal, including new access roads and elevated Skywalk and new multi-level car parking and car rental areas.In the coming years many more upgrades will be delivered to ensure our terminals can:
- provide increased capacity to meet growing demand
- in partnership with our airline and agency partners, provide efficient check in, baggage movement, boarding and security facilities
- provide positive experiences for all passengers
- provide a strong sense of Brisbane through locally inspired developments.
It is worth noting that Brisbane Airport Corporation does not control the Virgin, Qantas and Qantas Link areas within the Brisbane Domestic Terminal. These areas are under the control of these airlines and they manage any internal redevelopments within this space.
