BITRE report on growth at BNE for next 20 years

This Transport Government Bureau updates every few years the expected growth of the Capital city airports for the next 20 years.Brisbane is expected to be the fastest of all in both pax and aircraft movements.BNE airport will definitely need the parallel runway to meet these figures.

PAX GROWTH will go from 18.76 million in 2008-2009 to 51.2 million in 2029-2030 at 4% growth.Of that 4% growth it is made up of 6% international,4.8% inter capital and 4% regional but no growth on the unscheduled charter pax movements.This is the highest growth rate of all airports anticipated.

In regards to Aircraft movements BNE again leads at 3.1% planned growth.In 2008-2009 BNE had 183,700 movements and in 2029-2030 it expects to handle 346,100,or 948 movements a day on average which means peak days will be over 1,000. As part of this International arrivals should be as high as 94 a day compared to about 38 a day last year.

Based on all the above stats BNE is expected to reach 600 movements a day in 2014-2015 and 700 in 2017-2018.
PAX figures are expected to reach 20 million in 2010-2011 and 30 million in 2016-2017 and pass Sydney's current pax figures in the year 2018-2019
