The upgraded Brisbane Airport Domestic Terminal Precinct was officially opened on August 28. The redevelopment included an expansion to the Central Area Satellite and terminal aprons, construction of a new nine-storey car park, an elevated Skywalk, new forecourt area and central taxi rank, and reconfiguration of the road network in front of the terminal.
The $350-million upgrade also included a new public pick-up area (PPU), which, when opened, will offer 20 minutes free parking for drivers waiting to collect passengers from the Domestic Terminal.
With the upgrade mostly complete, travellers have access to bus, train, limousine, taxi and pre-booked transport options, as well as private vehicle parking and drop-off/pick-up, off airport parking, car rental options, car washing services, Premium, Valet and Guaranteed parking space, short-term parking and long-term parking, over-height vehicle parking, inter-Terminal bus and Translink bus services.
More than 16 million passengers currently travel through Brisbane’s Domestic Terminal each year, and Brisbane Airport’s International Terminal is the source of two thirds of all international visitors to Queensland. The Airport is projecting that there will be 33 million passengers travelling through the Domestic Terminal by 2029.
