Record-breaking growth in international traveller numbers at BNE means we are continuing to improve and add to our award winning airport, transforming the travel experience for our passengers.
Brisbane Airport’s new $135 million expansion of the northern International Terminal and apron provide significant benefits with the integration of the latest technology, increased aircraft docking and parking space, as well as improved passenger experience and processing efficiency to cater for future growth.
Following two years of construction across two levels, the expansion provides an additional 11,000 square meters of space at the International Terminal, including new arriving and departing passenger zones, two new walk-out gates and four new aerobridges.
A significant feature of the terminal expansion is an epic 90 metre floor to ceiling art work by Queensland College of Art (QCA) Master of Visual Art student Michael Phillips, commissioned by Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) as part of a competition.
The project also delivered 55,000 square metres of new pavement, new aircraft taxiways and three new aircraft parking bays capable of accommodating A380, B747, A330, A340 and A787 aircraft.
Required to meet increased airline demand and help position BNE as the major gateway into Australia, Brisbane Airport’s new expanded International terminal will deliver:
- The capacity for airlines to increase scheduled services
- More boarding capacity for airlines
- Faster boarding time for passengers
- More efficiency for both arriving and departing aircraft.
