Being available for the local community is the foundation for all Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) engagement activities.
BAC prides itself on providing a range of different forums for members of the local community to connect and to ask questions directly to the team about airport matters of interest to them including airport developments, aircraft noise, major projects and airport operations.
BAC team members are available to provide presentations to any community, education group or organisation.
These presentations give community members an opportunity to learn about Brisbane Airport and chat directly with the BAC team.
For more information or to request a presentation to your group contact Brisbane Airport here.
BAC is proud to participate in and support local cultural and community activities that help make South East Queensland one of the world’s great places to live, work and visit.
Every year BAC staff set up and man information stands at local fairs and festivals to bring the airport to the community. We can be found at the Bulimba, Morningside, Nundah, Racecourse Road and Teneriffe street festivals.
At these festivals and fairs we answer questions on everything ranging from the new flight paths, ground transport to our artist in residence program.
The Brisbane Airport Area Round Table (BAART) is a planning forum made up of federal, state, local government and BAC.
As a result of this quarterly gathering, other working groups, such as BACACG, are updated on the progress of planning issues including aircraft noise, airspace management and ground transport. Similarly, the Brisbane Airport Technical Noise Working Group (TNWG) supplements the BACACG. Issues raised by the BACACG requiring a complex or detailed response are referred to the TNWG, which includes airline representatives, government agencies such as Airservices Australia, regulators and BAC.
There are also planning consultation groups related to ground transport, environment, land use and aviation development which contribute direct to the Master Planning process.
The Brisbane Airport Local Business Advisory Group was formed to monitor levels of project knowledge, awareness and issues of interest regarding Brisbane’s New Runway as well as to get independent feedback on the communications program.
The advisory group mainly consists of small businesses not based on airport which are in the property, retail and services sectors as well as transport operators and economic development agencies.
Meeting twice a year, the advisory group was formed with input from local political representatives within Brisbane Airport’s catchment.
