Brisbane pick up and drop off at BNE airport
Ground transportation to Brisbane Airport
Brisbane Airport serves as the primary international terminal for Queensland as well as its capital Brisbane. The airport offers two art-filled terminals; the International Terminal and the Domestic Terminal. The International Terminal was re-developed in 2014 and offers four levels of facilities, while the Domestic Terminal is a simpler 2-story building known for its curved design as well as various concourses and satellite arms extending beyond the departures level. You can get from one end of Brisbane Airport to the other by using the inter-terminal bus, which drops off at various shopping centers and the on-site hotel. Ground transportation options include two railway stations located at each terminal, each connected by Airtrain Citylink, which travels throughout the Queensland area.
Brisbane Airport is home to four expansive car-parks, which are connected to both the International and Domestic Terminals. Those picking up or dropping off should head over to ParkShort for the easiest access to both terminals, or choose between one of ParkLong’s three car parks, located along Levels 5-9 as well as Levels 1-6 of the Domestic Terminal, plus Levels 2-5 for the International Terminal. Additional parking services include ParkValet located along Level 3 of the Domestic Terminal and Level 1 of the International Terminal, as well as AIRPARK, which provides ultimate budget parking alongside undercover spaces. The Domestic Terminal is also home to exclusive perks that include ParkPremium’s instant access to a terminal skywalk as well as Guaranteed Space’s hassle-free spots made via online reservations.
