Guidelines for Media visiting BNE

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is responsible for the operation of the International Terminal and the Central Area of the Domestic Terminal used by airlines including Jetstar, Tigerair, Regional Express and other regional airlines.

Media representatives are welcome within the publically accessible areas of Brisbane Airport, including the International Terminal and the Central Area of the Domestic Terminal and outdoor areas, when obtaining footage for news and current affairs programs. We do however request that the following courtesies are adhered to:

  • Please provide as much prior notice as possible of media crews visiting the airport grounds or terminals for any reason. You can do this by emailing BNEmedia@bne.com.au or calling 0466 322 485. You’ll need to advise who is coming, when they are coming, where they plan to be and why they are filming at the airport. This allows us to advise airline, security and operational staff, as well as the Australian Federal Police, in advance about your visit.
  • All requests for filming of check-in counters and/or airline staff should in the first instance be made to the relevant airline.
  • Please do not film any Security Screening or immigration staff/equipment or processes at any time.
  • Please do not attempt to access or film sterile/restricted areas unless escorted by a BAC team member.
  • If filming near airside fencing, please keep a distance of at least three metres from the fence line.
  • Please do not park illegally and always follow the directions of BAC staff and the Australian Federal Police while at the airport.
  • It is illegal to fly drones within 5.5 km of an airfield

These guidelines apply when filming on Brisbane Airport land, including at Skygate and non-terminal precincts, in or near the International Terminal and in the Central Area of the Domestic Terminal or terminal forecourt/carparks.

Media wanting to access and film within the Qantas and Virgin Australia areas of the Domestic Terminal must first seek permission from the respective airline. BAC is not able to authorise media access to these areas under lease agreements. Please contact Qantas: http://www.qantasnewsroom.com.au/media-enquiries/ and Virgin Australia: publicaffairs@virginaustralia.com.
