Hungry travellers passing through Brisbane Airport’s Domestic Terminal will soon have a new dining option to satisfy cravings on the go.
Construction is now underway on a new McDonald’s restaurant, complete with a McCafé section, slated to open in mid-2024.
The upcoming McDonald’s will be part of a major revitalisation initiative by Brisbane Airport Corporation aimed at enhancing the passenger experience. McDonald’s is one of the 10 new dining establishments that will be launching over the next few months as part of the airport’s redevelopment.
According to Martin Ryan, the Executive Commercial General Manager for Brisbane Airport, the company is aware that Brisbane passengers have been eager for a McDonald’s outlet within the terminal.
“If there is one thing BNE travellers have been asking for it’s a Maccas! It has consistently remained the most requested retailer and we couldn’t be more delighted to deliver,” said Mr Ryan.
For many passengers, grabbing a quick McDonald’s bite has become routine before flying. With the opening of McDonald’s, Brisbane Airport travellers can soon pick up coffee or McNuggets without leaving the terminal, helping make travel through the airport even smoother. The iconic golden arches will likely give a taste of home even before takeoff.
As part of the airport’s $5 billion “Future BNE” redevelopment plan, they are bringing exciting new dining establishments into the retail mix that passengers will be excited about.
Other upgrades aimed at improving customer flow and experience include state-of-the-art security systems, more spacious gate lounges with new furnishings, and more.
Travellers will notice a smoother journey through security with this major terminal upgrade. Cutting-edge screening technology and processes will be implemented to enhance both safety and convenience.
Passengers using the Skywalk entrance with carry-on luggage only will be able to access the Domestic Terminal directly after online check-in. This allows travellers to keep their personal belongings packed as they pass through new state-of-the-art scanners.
The new McDonald’s outlet will complement the existing 24-hour McDonald’s located at the BNE Service Centre, a short drive from the airport terminals.
