Car Rentals Brisbane Airport Australia

Monday, July 19, 2010

Brisbane may be known worldwide as Australia’s third-largest city, but for centuries it was seen as the poor cousin of Melbourne and Sydney and sleepy town hiding behind a metropolitan facade. However, things have changed a lot in recent years. Brisbane has been able to successfully shed its slumber image and has emerged as one of the most looked-for places to live in Australia. With an estimated 700 - 1000 people packing their stuff and moving up here permanently every week, Brisbane has a charm that people just can’t resist.

The lazy yet perfect subtropical climate of Brisbane exhibits such a rich cultural appeal that international tourists like to visit it more often than once. Once here, it’s easy to fall in love with this city because of the down-to-earth attitude of the locals.

The Brisbane Airport serves Brisbane and its passenger load makes it the third busiest airports in Australia. It is located at the suburb with the same name and is the primary hub for Virgin Blue and secondary hub for both Jetstar and Qantas. The Brisbane Airport is also home to Qantas' heavy maintenance facility.

The Brisbane Airport has separate domestic and international passenger terminals, cargo terminal and a General Aviation terminal. The incoming and outgoing traffic is managed through two parallel runways. If you are driving from the central business center, take the Gateway Motorway to reach the airport. However, be aware of the traffic and waiting time which can sometimes be as long as 40 minutes, just to enter the Airport Arterial Road.

The Brisbane Airport was voted the finest airport in the whole Australia-Pacific region. It is also in the good books for having the friendliest airport staff in the world. Some of the passenger services at airport include – visitor’s information desk, hotels/ motels at airport, duty free shops, food courts, door-to-door airport shuttle, car rental booths, taxi center and affordable car parking. The airport is also connected through the public transportation system – Airtrain.

If you like to explore the city search online for a preferred car hire service provider in Australia.
