FAQs

What time do you need to arrive at Brisbane Airport for an international flight?

It’s recommended that you arrive at Brisbane Airport at least three hours before your international flight. By doing so, you give yourself the best chance of passing through security and making it to the gate before the aircraft doors close. In contrast, you can arrive one hour before a domestic flight. However, you may want to allocate additional time depending on whether or not you wish to go shopping.

Does Brisbane Airport close overnight?

Brisbane Airport is open on a 24-hour basis, which means you can stay in the terminal overnight if necessary. However, this only applies to the pre-security areas, you cannot remain in post-security areas after the last flight of the day has departed. For those who need to remain in the terminal overnight, most passengers report that the International Terminal is more comfortable than the Domestic Terminal. A free shuttle runs between the two, but pay close attention to the timetable if you have an early flight.
