BRISBANE AIRPORT STILL OPERATING

BRISBANE AIRPORT STILL OPERATING

WATER has receded due to an extended period without rain and both Domestic and International Terminals are operating with flights expected to be landing and departing on schedule throughout the day.

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) will continue to monitor water levels on the hour every hour, and water pumps have been deployed across the airfield to be used if necessary.

Although aircraft are still able to fly in and out of Brisbane Airport, passengers should contact their airlines direct for further information on changes to flight schedules.

Public transport to and from Brisbane Airport will be effected throughout the day. Airtrain will run a service every half hour to the city for passengers, and once every hour to the Gold Coast. CoachTrans bus service to the CBD is operating on demand for today, however the services to the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast are operating as normal. Coachtrans night time services for Wednesday will be cancelled. For further information on public transport options, visit www.translink.com.au

There is potential for some roads around the business precincts of the airport to be affected by flooding today. The roads that may be affected are: MyrtletownRd, and Eaglefarm Rd. Major roads to and from the terminal including Moreton Drive and Airport Drive are clear of water and operating efficiently. For roads surrounding the airport precinct which may be impacted by floods, please visit www.131940.qld.gov.au

BAC would like to notify Brisbane residents that the airport is not a designated evacuation centre. Last night 150 people arrived at the International Terminal after being informed it was an evacuation centre. BAC took the people in and sheltered them, however, the terminals are not equipped with the bedding, food or water supplies, needed to be an evacuation centre.
