Brisbane Airport is located around 12 km from the Brisbane CBD and is serviced by road, rail and public transport connections.
26 international and domestic airlines service Brisbane Airport, giving passengers the ability to fly direct from Brisbane to 28 international and 41 domestic destinations.
Brisbane Airport is Australia’s largest capital city airport in area, covering around 2,700 hectares, including 1,000 hectares suitable for land use development. This extensive land area provides significant scope for future expansion, giving the airport capacity to grow into a major international gateway, while maintaining its significant buffer zones that separate airport operations from surrounding communities.
Brisbane’s curfew-free status provides a key competitive advantage that allows for continued expansion of Queensland’s business and tourism interests. The ability to operate 24/7 allows international carriers to effectively link Brisbane to international networks. The absence of a night curfew is also critical for air freight, with time-sensitive and perishable freight reliant on the airport’s around-the-clock status to achieve timely delivery.
Being closer to a number of major Asian ports, Brisbane Airport enjoys a strategic geographic advantage over the other major east coast ports of Sydney and Melbourne. This is of particular importance to fresh produce exporters. With a large number of tourism destinations located in SEQ, Brisbane Airport is the primary gateway for national and international tourists to Queensland.
