Brisbane Airport at a glance: A new international hub

As previously explored by the Blue Swan Daily, Brisbane Airport is currently in an international service renaissance fuelled by international growth and especially Qantas’ recent announcement that it would base four of its new 787-9 Dreamliners out of the airport.

Brisbane currently service 28 international destinations but now has the opportunity to increase this even further thanks to Qantas. Where that will be, we are still to find out.

Brisbane has also enjoyed annual international traffic growth of around five per cent but it is worth noting that by replacing current 747s with the smaller 787-9 this will result in a 35% reduction in seats on those routes.
