Are you runway ready?

Below is a checklist to help you get runway ready.

Search your address in the Flight Path Tool

The Flight Path Tool allows you to search any address in Brisbane to see if it is under any Brisbane Airport current, or future, flight paths. There is also an extensive Knowledge Centre containing information about flight paths and aircraft noise. The Flight Path Tool and Knowledge Centre can be accessed here (external site).

Talk to Team BNE at ‘Benny’

Team BNE is on the road with a mobile information centre, ‘Benny’, to help you get the facts on the new runway and what it means for you. Benny has information on flight paths and aircraft noise, the runway construction process, Brisbane Airport’s history and much more.

Currently Benny activities are postponed. For updates on Benny visit here (external site).

Why are the changes necessary?

A new runway on the ground means a change in flight paths above.

You can read more about the new runway on the Brisbane Airport website (external site).

When will this change occur?

Brisbane's New Runway commences operations on Sunday 12 July 2020.

    Brisbane's airspace changes on Thursday 21 May, ready for when the new runway opens on Sunday 12 July.

    Even though the airspace change means that the new flight paths are installed in the aircraft and air traffic control systems, the flight paths to and from the new runway won't be used as until it opens on 12 July. In the interim period, between the airspace change and the opening of the runway, amended flight paths to the current runway will be used.

    Find out more about this airspace change and flight paths in Brisbane Airport's Flight Path Tool (external site).
