If you’ve been paying attention (we know you keep your finger on the pulse), you’ll have seen us roll out a fun-filled series about award-winning Brisbane Airport and some of their incredible airline partners. Brisbane Airport shared messages of support, love and thanks for their partners, from their partners and how, together, they’ve worked to enhance your clients’ journeys around Australia and abroad.
Well, we’re back with this wrap to share the love for every partner, and some love for you, too. Come with us as we show you the ultimate guide to how Brisbane Airport better connects your clients (and you) to the world!
Better connected to Canada & beyond with Air Canada
Whether it’s a summer vacay to Montreal or a winter getaway to Whistler, flying Air Canada out of BNE is a dream. The team at BNE have much love for the Air Canada ground and airline crew who pride themselves on delivering that friendly Canuck service no matter what end of the plane you’re sitting at, from Economy Class, Premium Economy Class, through to their industry-leading Signature Class. With Air Canada’s seamless connections at Vancouver airport connecting onwards to 100+ destinations across Canada and the United States, there’s a lot to love!
And get this. Air Canada is a multiple Skytrax award-winner, just like Brisbane Airport – an equal eight times each! Makes you think they may just be soul mates, huh?

Better connected to the Pacific, thanks to Air Vanuatu
Who doesn’t love being better connected to tropical beaches, eco-friendly accommodation, and unbelievably welcoming locals? Not us, that’s for sure! And not Brisbane Airport, either. They’ve got deep love for their Air Vanuatu buddies as they allow Queenslanders to reach paradise three times a week!
The Air Vanuatu crew don’t just bring happy vibes to the flight. Their broad smiles, breezy banter, and infectious charm start at the terminal. BNE’s award-winning Best Airport Staff and the sunny disposition of the Air Vanuatu team are a match made in paradise!
Check out the Air Vanuatu vibes in our interview with Donna Downs and Lisa Yarde here.
Better connected to Route 66 & the Big Apple flying United Airlines
Queenslanders and the team at Brisbane Airport jumped for joy when United Airlines announced they were kicking off their non-stop service to the US. Effortless travel to San Francisco, connecting travellers to Los Angeles, Miami and 200+ other cities aboard the jetlag-reducing 787-9 Dreamliner is more cause for celebration, too.
Long-standing partners, UA and BNE continue work seamlessly on the ground to ensure smooth passage for every traveller. Their collective mission is evident on the ground three times a week for all to witness but not just that, even their tag lines speak for themselves with United’s ‘connecting people, uniting the world’ and BNE ‘We’re better connected’, these two are a match made in heaven.

Better connected to Asia & beyond with Singapore Airlines
It’s probably no surprise that the crew at Brisbane Airport have a thing for Singapore Airlines. It’s not hard to find love for their award-winning service and flights connecting Queenslanders to more than 100 destinations. Singapore Airlines and Scoot actually currently operate to 113 destinations in 36 countries.
Like any great romance, it’s the little touches that go the distance in a relationship, right? Little touches like impeccably designed planes, comfort-focused in-flight extras, and the renowned Singapore Airlines’ attention to detail at every step of the journey, right from the Brisbane Airport terminal.

Better connected to our own backyard with Virgin Australia
When your mates say they are going to bring on the wonderful, you know it will bring on more wonderful for you, too. This is why Brisbane Airport is so amped to still be best buds with Virgin Australia, 20+ years on. Weathering the highs and lows together forms a special kind of bond, don’t you think?
Of course, Virgin Australia doesn’t just get Queenslanders to 25 destinations around Australia. With flights to Bali, Fiji, and Queenstown, the wonderful extends beyond our backyard. Who doesn’t love catching up over at the neighbours’ place?
Renee Schneider, VA cabin crew claimed Brisbane Airport as her fave; find out why here.
Better connected to New Zealand & beyond
Getting direct access to Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington is already a win for Queenslanders but add that it’s with Air New Zealand, and it’s met with cries of joy. This is thanks to Air New Zealand’s lead-from-the-front innovation that not only improves the quality of any flight, particularly when heading onwards to international destinations but also improves the pleasure of flying, too.
Open-hearted Kiwi hospitality from the gate to the lounge, to onboard is a staple of any Air New Zealand flight staff and crew. It’s a feature that aligns so perfectly with Brisbane Airport’s ethos. When you place people first – be it your customers, staff, or partners – magic falls into place!
As Steve Mareroa, Air New Zealand’s Brisbane Airport Operations Manager says, it’s all about “the people, the people, the people“.
Queenslanders, better connected because of you
Of course, it’s not only these six airlines that BNE is home to. With direct flights to 23 international destinations, and more to be announced soon, the world is back open for business, big time.
No matter where your clients want to go, Brisbane Airport can help connect them with the people and destinations they love, and their passion of experiencing something new.
Brisbane Airport appreciates and admires all you do to support them and their lovely airline partners.
In the words of Ryan Both, Executive General Manager of Aviation at Brisbane Airport Corporation, “We are so grateful to the travel trade for all of the support they give to us and our airline partners. It takes a team effort across the industry to deliver a great experience to passengers and connect to the world.”
As a demonstration of Brisbane Airport’s appreciation for travel agents, they are very excited to announce they will be bringing back the Show n Go events. Keep an eye out for more details soon – it could be you on the next flight out of Brisbane!
