Brisbane the gateway to Queensland05 November 2015 by News Desk
Visitors to Queensland will now get one of the finest welcomes in the country thanks to the new International Terminal at Brisbane airport.
The new $45 million airport redevelopment is described as ‘one of the most beautiful in the world’ with its’ stunning design. “This project has been a labour of love for everyone who has worked on it over the last few years, helping to create a truly unique gateway to Queensland,” said Julieanne Alroe, CEO of Brisbane Airport Corporation.
The airport has sought to break the usual ‘airport mould’ and create a distinct space that set Brisbane Airport apart from all others and it has been recognised with the Queensland Property Council Award for Excellence in Design.
The new terminal includes a new themed Departures lounge, new walk through Duty Free stores for both Departures and Arrivals; new specialty retail and food and drink outlets offering the best of local produce and products; improved signage for passengers and unrivalled views of aviation activity on the tarmac.
Additional improvements to the International Terminal include construction of three new airline lounges and a day spa due for completion in early 2016.
