Busiest day at BNE in two years – reminder to plan ahead!

Skywalk at Domestic Terminal

Friday 8 April 2022: With Brisbane Airport (BNE) surpassing a significant pre-COVID milestone, passengers are again reminded to plan ahead and pack their patience if travelling throughout the Easter holiday period.

More than 51,800 passengers will use the Domestic Terminal today, making it the busiest day for domestic travel at BNE in more than two years.

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) spokesperson Rachel Bronish said it was wonderful to see so many people at the airport.

“We are incredibly excited to see the terminal’s concourses and halls full of travellers once again.

“The Easter school holiday period is proving to be hugely successful for tourism with people exploring their country and visiting loved ones, but with that comes some challenges.

“As the aviation industry continues to ramp up, our partners across security screening, food and beverage, retail, and the airlines face the challenge of training additional staff to meet the demand, so passengers should expect longer processing times at the airport,” Ms Bronish said.

“We remind the travelling public to please plan ahead and allow plenty of extra time to get to, and through, the airport, and to be courteous and respectful to each other, and to airport staff who will be doing their very best to get passengers up and away on time.”

Passengers are reminded to jump online and book car parking as far in advance as possible, as parking demand at BNE has surged beyond usual numbers in recent weeks.

AIRPARK 2 launched last week, opening up an additional 2,200 car parking spaces for domestic travellers during the busy holiday and Easter period, but the importance of planning ahead remains critical.

Shuttle buses between AIRPARK 1 and 2 and the Domestic Terminal operate every 20-30 minutes, with the terminal only a 10-minute ride away.
