Australia’s third busiest airport is in the midst of the largest redevelopment in its history. Chris Frame spoke to its chief executive for Aviation News.
Brisbane Airport is on the cusp of a rebirth, with more than A$2.5bn (US$1.8bn) having been spent on infrastructure over the past eight years. Works at the airport include a new runway and associated taxiways, lighting and road works. In addition, upgrades to the International Terminal have transformed the customer experience.
Gert-Jan de Graaff is the chief executive officer of Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC). Starting the role in June 2018, he returns to the Australian hub after a six-year hiatus which saw him bidding for an airport in Brazil as well as leading the operations at one of America’s busiest terminals.<
