Brisbane's New Runway commences operations
Work on the site began in 2012 with the major stages of construction now in progress and on track to open in 2020. Once complete, Brisbane will have the best runway system in Australia effectively doubling our current capacity.
It has been estimated by 2035 the new runway will lead to the creation of 7,800 new jobs and contribute an additional $5 billion in annual economic benefit to the region. For our community of travellers this project will also lead to a greater choice in airlines, destinations and flight times.
This new runway is a key piece of infrastructure that will enable the continued growth of Brisbane, our region and the nation. Furthermore the new runway will enable Brisbane Airport to better meet the demands of the community it serves, now and for future generations.
