Brisbane Airport Runway Maintenance Update

Maintenance work will be carried out on the Brisbane Airport runways from Monday 28 to Wednesday 30 November 2022.

The aircraft taxiway near the new runway end 01L is scheduled to close on Monday, 28 November, from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. Some aircraft that would usually depart from RWY 01L may require departure from legacy runway end 01R.

The new runway (01L/19R) is scheduled to close on Tuesday, 29 November 2022, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. You may notice a temporary change to aircraft operations during this work, as all arrivals and departures will use the legacy runway (01R/19L).

The legacy runway (01R/19L) will have a displaced threshold (shorter runway length) on Wednesday, 30 November 2022, from 7:00 AM to 4:30PM:

  • You may notice steeper approach profiles to runway 01R during this displacement
  • Some aircraft that would usually depart from RWY 01R may require departure from new parallel runway 01L
  • Some aircraft that would usually arrive to RWY 01R may require arrival to new parallel runway 01L

These works will not affect the noise improvement trials currently underway, including extended Simultaneous Opposite Direction Parallel Runway Operations (SODPROPS) hours and restricted intersection departures on the new parallel runway.

If you have any questions about the runway maintenance, please contact Brisbane Airport Corporation by email at:

If you have specific questions or complaints about aircraft operations, please contact our Noise Complaints and Information Service (NCIS).
