Brisbane Airport survives 4am high tide

13 January 2011

 

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is confident the airport will now stay open after the airport survived the 4am high tide without any critical infrastructure being compromised.

 

The International and Domestic Terminals, runways, taxiways, carparks and roads are all clear of water and operating.

 

Now the worst is passed, BAC is confident the airport will stay open, but it will continue to monitor water levels throughout the week as a precaution.

 

Public transport to and from Brisbane Airport is available but limited. Airtrain Gold Coast service is still running but only to Yeerongpilly. There is no alternative transport from this point and passengers need to find alternative means of transport to their own way to their destination.

 

All Translink/Airtrain services are currently free. There will be another update in regards to Airtrain services later this morning. For further information on public transport options, visit

 

Roads on the Brisbane Airport precinct are currently open and are expected to remain open from now on. Toll roads, including the Gateway Bridge, are now free and will be until further notice.
