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.
