Brisbane International Airport terminals

Airport terminals are the sections or separate buildings which enable travellers to move between ground transportation and the facilities for boarding and disembarking from an aircraft. It's important to confirm the terminal before getting to the airport when you depart or have a transfer to another flight, because the terminals in bigger airports may be far from each other and travellers usually require extra time to get to the necessary one. There are 2 Terminals in Brisbane Airport.

Terminal 1 – International flights

Terminal 2 – Domestic flights

Brisbane Airport transport connections

It can be difficult when travelling to a destination for the first time to find the most convenient way to reach the city centre. Public transport is not always available directly from the airport and taxis might be pricey. Our recommendation is to check all transport possibilities ahead of the flight to make sure you choose the ideal option for your trip.
