Brisbane Airport continues its steady growth trajectory in 2017

The CAPA 2018 Queensland Aviation and Corporate Travel Summit is underway in Brisbane so let’s take a closer look at the year that was for Queensland’s major airport in Brisbane. Since 2010, Brisbane airports traffic has increased at a steady rate of anywhere between 1-5%. In 2017, both traffic and capacity was up by 2.3%. Sydney continues to be the main connector with Brisbane, accounting for over 5.8 million seats in the year. Internationally, Los Angeles tops the list, which will only be further boosted in 2018 when Qantas utilises its new Boeing 787-9 equipment to join Brisbane with the US.
