Brisbane number cruncher - the key stats shaping the host of Routes Asia 2018

Routes Asia 2018, the only route development forum for the Asia-Pacific region, is taking place in Brisbane from 18-20 March 2018. Routesonline takes a look at some of the key statistics shaping the market.

As the countdown to Routes Asia 2018 continues, Routesonline looks at the growth of the Brisbane aviation market, examining the top destinations served, total capacity and biggest airlines. 

Brisbane is the state capital and gateway to Queensland, home to major international attractions such as the Great Barrier Reef, Gold Coast, the Whitsunday Islands and the kangaroos that play on Cape Hillsborough beach.

Queensland is also experiencing a boom in the number of international travellers, especially from China.

Brisbane Airport (BNE) capacity will double when a new second runway opens in 2020 at a cost of AUS$1.35bn, and the international terminal will be redeveloped to the tune of AUS$45m.

Ahead of Brisbane playing host to Routes Asia 2018, here are the some of the facts and figures on the city's aviation market.
