While BAC's core responsibility is the safe and efficient operation of Brisbane Airport, managing thousands of flights and millions of passengers who arrive and depart each year, the modern airport is more than a place to catch a plane. Indeed the 21st century is the 'Aviation Century' in which emerging global cities are redefining the role of their aviation gateway.
With this in mind, and in partnership with the State Government of Queensland and Brisbane City Council, BAC is helping to build Brisbane's profile as a regional aviation and aerospace, a global leisure destination, and a competitive international business location.
BAC does this by:
Progressing plans to blend core aviation activities, such as passenger and cargo movement, with a full range of industrial and commercial possibilities such as freight handling, warehousing, transport and communications, manufacturing, research and development, education and training, recreation, tourism, leisure and retail;
Creatively targeting builders, companies and potential tenants to facilitate the sustainable development of nearly 1000 hectares of prime real estate on airport land;
Convening regular forums such as the Brisbane Airport and Area Round Table (BAART), comprising federal, state and local government planning authorities, to coordinate an integrated approach to airport planning, and;
Hosting industry workshops such as the first Brisbane Airport Design Atelier to canvas new ideas for the future growth of the precinct, reflecting that of Brisbane city and the wider state.
