About Brisbane International Airport departures

Brisbane Airport is located 11 miles from the center of the city. It is an airport that operates day and night. There are two main terminals with 2 runways of 3,300 and 3,500 meters. There are a couple of boxes of airlines with around 50 domestic flight routes and 20 international routes. It is one of the largest airports in Australia with 24 million passengers annually. It has also won the ‘Best Airport’ in Australia/Pacific by Skytrax several times. There are also hundreds of companies that provide more than 20,000 jobs. Most flights are operated by Qantas, Virgin, Link Airways, Rex, and Jetstar.


In the year 1922 the idea came from Johnston to create an Aerodrome. A 32-acre piece of land was acquired near Schneider Rd. It was called Eagle Farm Airport. At the end of the year, the first Brisbane departure was a fact. The official opening was not until 1925. Several solo flights landed from Fiji and even from Britain. During World War II, the airfield was seized by the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force). The grassy runways were replaced by a harder surface by the US to allow military flights. After the war it became a principal airport for Brisbane.

The airport gradually expanded to 4,000 acres of land and three terminals for domestic and international services. To meet the increasing demand for flights, a piece of land was purchased next to the former location, which is now the current Brisbane Airport. The final opening was in 1988 by Prime Minister Bob Hawke. The last Brisbane departures at the old airport took place a day later to transfer directly. Work was started almost immediately on a new terminal especially for international air transport. This terminal was opened in 1995. This and the other terminal have been renovated many times. A car park has also been made through the hair and innovations to the runways.

Brisbane airport ground transportation

Taxis are widely used to travel further when you arrive at the airport. The taxis are available 24/7 in front of the terminal to travel directly to your final destination. This is at the domestic terminal just in front of the building and at the international terminal on level 2. It costs about $50 to travel to the city center which takes about 20 minutes.

You could also travel by Airtrain. There are Brisbane departures every 15 minutes to the center where you can be in 20 minutes. Outside peak hours, an Airtrain runs every 30 minutes. The Airtrain station is on Level 3 near the international terminal and at the domestic terminal in front of the building. You can also only use this mode of transport if you want to travel between the terminals. This costs $5.

If you want to travel cheaper than the official taxi, you can use a Ride Share. Use the app of the company you want to travel with and they will be waiting for you in front of one of the two terminals.

Then you can also travel by bus. The company Con-x-ion offers a bus service to many locations in Brisbane city as well as the Sunshine and Gold Coast. A Skybus is also available for travel. This is a City Express shuttle bus with a fast connection to the city.

Terminals at Brisbane Airport

The airport has 2 terminals, an international terminal and a Brisbane domestic departures terminal. The domestic terminal has the Brisbane flight departures on Level 1 and the check-in counters with special areas for Qantas (north) and Virgin (south) and in the middle a central area for other airlines. After check-in you go through security for the BNE departures where the gates are for boarding.

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.

Brisbane Airport 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.
