Brisbane won't get the A380 maitenance, i can garantee you that. It may, however, get the A330's & in future, the 787's.

From the Courier Mail:

Airport set for expansion

WORK will begin this month on a $300 million expansion of Brisbane International Airport to cater for growing passenger numbers and to accommodate the giant Airbus A380 aircraft.

When airlines begin operating the double-decker aircraft, it will bring in loads of up to 550 people, taxing the existing infrastructure which is rapidly approaching its maximum capacity.

Although the existing runway can carry the plane which is due to fly next year, Brisbane Airport Corporation has to build new taxiways and aprons and two new boarding gates with dual aerobridges.

Project director John Richards said the plane presented unique challenges and offered Brisbane the chance to develop a

state-of-the-art terminal with self-service check-in facilities and new gate arrangements that would reduce queuing and congestion when the work was completed in 2008.

Retail outlets would be expanded and due to the scale of the project there would have to be more than 1670 relocations of tenancies during the process but no interruption to the airport's curfew free operations.

The first changes would involve parking.

A new staff parking area would be built and public parking would be relocated to the existing staff park.

This would free up space for construction of a multi-storey car park for the public.

However, he said, the corporation had made significant plans to ensure the terminal's day-to-day operations remained smoother while extension work took place.

"For this reason we ask people to be patient during the building process."

Took a few pics of the domestic terminal when i flew out last weekend on the 22/4 (saturday). I wasnt really going out of my way to take these but i still thought i would share.

I must admit too that i was really quite suprised how busy the airport was. With planes arriving/departing every 5 mins, there was always some sort of activity happening. Even when we came back on monday arvo, there was still plenty of action.....

A couple of the outside:



Some inside (downstairs):



upstairs:


and finally one of brissys skyline from inside the plane:


I took some aerials too of brissy, but im not sure if there worth posting. The planes have the same route therefore no new angles too take.

Yeah you're right, the domestic terminal is well overdue for a full refurb. I think that will happen after the international terminal expansion is complete.

The domestic terminal is about 600 metres long and changes inside 3 times to reflect the different airlines using it. The Virgin area has a reddish look while Qantas has a much more contemporary look similar to Sydney or Melbourne. The Middle common area which is used by Jetstar, Alliance, Macair and other smaller arlines is different again.

Its about time Brisbane became the 2nd most visted international airport..with Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and Queensland at its doorstep it has always made sense.

I would like to see actual figures, because the last ones I've seen show Melbourne international way ahead of Brisbane.

Yeah sounds a bit odd, i'm sure BNE would still be trailing MEL in pax numbers. It will possibly eventually overtake MEL, purely because of BNE's geographical location, but it wouldn't be for some time i would imagine.
