Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Brisbane Airport Prepares For Significant Winter Growth…

These new routes are expected to take Brisbane Airport from 81% of pre-pandemic capacity to 90%.
Commenting on this was Ryan Both, the Executive General Manager for the airport:
“This is a boost for the state’s tourism economy. We know when Brisbane Airport is busy, Queensland is busy, and things are about to step up a notch,”
“We’re excited about the return of the first tourists flying direct from mainland China to Queensland.”
“The restart of China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines to Brisbane signals the return of what was Queensland’s most lucrative tourism market, one that delivers thousands of jobs to the economy.”
“We also celebrate United Airlines significantly boosting flights to Brisbane. It was exactly 12 months ago that United launched 3 flights per week from San Francisco to Brisbane with the help of Queensland’s Attracting Aviation Investment Fund.”
“Now this will become a daily service, and United will also add Los Angeles as a destination in time for Christmas.”
“This really demonstrates the success of the Queensland Government and airports joint initiative to kick-start and grow new services to boost the state’s visitor economy.”
All eyes will be on Brisbane Airport to see how the winter (Their Summer) will go.
