Domestic Terminal of the Brisbane Airport
It is a huge building that takes up most of the airport. The Domestic Terminal serves Qantas and QantasLink to the north and Virgin Blue to the south, while other carriers such as Jetstar are served centrally in the common area. The Terminal has three lounges: Business Class, Chairman’s Lounge, and the very popular Qantas Club.
Developing of the Domestic Terminal and becoming it as Brisbane Airport New Terminal
It was decided to expand and improve this Terminal. The whole idea was to increase the number of operating aircraft. From the side where the planes will be able to receive passengers, it will look like “U” that will be parallel to the runway and go around the Domestic Terminal and some car rentals that are closely located. The train track will also be improved at the airport. It will be looped and will increase the number of people transported between the terminals.
People transporting between the Terminals
Since the area of the airport is not small, it provides interesting and convenient ways to travel between Terminals.
Skygate, AIRPARK and Terminal transfer busses
The airport offers three types of buses that have an affordable fee and comfortable seats.
The Skygate one transports people from the eponymous mall to some of the airport locations. Works around the clock.
The AIRPARK bus takes people from parking to the Terminals. Works around the clock too.
Terminal transfer bus runs between the Terminals every 15 minutes. It is available from 4:00 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.

The train runs every day. The schedule varies slightly depending on the day, but generally remains the same. Trains go every 15 minutes during rush hour. When it is off-peak time it goes with a frequency of thirty minutes. The trains offer their transportation for 5$ fee.
Location of the Terminals of BNE Airport
Terminals occupy not a small part of the entire airport. They are opposite the runway and close enough to Moreton Bay, which is directly part of the Pacific Ocean. The airport itself is surrounded by many parking lots and car rental services. In addition, a huge Skygate mall is located a 15-minute drive from the airport. Fisherman Island is located very close to the airport. The area is a port for cargo ships.
The Domestic Terminal is bigger both in passenger number and in size than the International one. Since the location is large, it requires the ability to navigate and understand where to go in the both Terminals. But fortunately, no one will have problems with this, as high-end qualified staff will help every visitor anytime. Also do not forget about loads of online schedules in the airport.
