Brisbane Airport was reported as the fourth-best medium-sized airport for on-time arrivals and BNE airport departures. Even though a small decrease in passengers last year, the most popular route from Brisbane Airport is to the biggest city in New Zealand, called Auckland. The second and third most popular routes (Singapore and Dubai) are mainly used as hubs to Asia or Europe.

Passengers statistics

In the year 2019, there were 24.1 million passengers at the airport. That is 2.1 percent more than the year before. There is actually in 2020 a big decrease of Brisbane departures. Only 7.8 million people traveled through this airport because of the pandemic. This is partly due to extra flights from AirAsia, Singapore Airlines, Solomon Airlines, Royal Brunei and EVA AIR. Brisbane Airport wants to grow to 50 million passengers per year. There will be more Brisbane Airport departures due to the construction of a new runway in 2020.
