Looks like Ground Hog day with a repeat of the weather we experienced yesterday.
Many flights have been cancelled or rescheduled and you can expect delays network wide.
Some tips to get us through the day:
- Check with your airline about the status of a specific flight. You can also check the arrivals and departures page however please remember the information on this page is pulled directly from the airlines systems and is updated by airline staff NOT Brisbane Airport. Airline staff try to update this information as much as possible, however information on this page is not always current/up to the minute. Live flight tracking programs such as flightaware.com are also helpful.
- Please take great care when walking through car parks and the terminals. There's clearly a LOT of water about and while our cleaners are doing an awesome job, caution is advised.
- Please secure your belongings carefully when outside to help us reduce flying debri around the airport.
- Follow Queensland Police Service on Facebook and Twitter for updates on road closures and incidents.
- Expect delays and please be patient with airport and operational staff, they are doing their utmost to keep things on track during these extraordinary weather events.
Take care everyone.
Update as at 9pm Sunday 27/1/13: Brisbane Airport is still OPEN and operational.
Busy day and delays are starting to build.
Due to weather, some airlines that usually board/disembark off-stand, are waiting for available aerobridges, which will contribute to delays.
Caution is also being exercised in regards to crew on the Tarmac, so some flights are currently waiting for pushback, which will contribute to delays.
We appreciate your patience and can reassure you the staff at BNE are working hard to get everyone on their way tonight.
Update as at 6pm Sunday 27/1/13: Brisbane Airport is still OPEN and operational. Minimal delays.

We've got cleaners on the job, but we would appreciate you being extra cautious and reporting any puddles/issues.
