General Information About Brisbane Flights

Finding Cheap Flights to Brisbane

Brisbane Airport is an alternate arrival point for your Gold Coast holiday. There are many more flights to Brisbane daily than the Gold Coast because it is a much bigger airport with a much larger international terminal serviced by many more airlines.

This greater frequency of flights and the many more options translates into potential discounts or bargains on Brisbane flights.

Discounted or cheap flights to Brisbane from local and overseas cities are usually found by keeping an eye on the major flight companies.

I tend to use Flight Centre, and although I have always had a good service from them, I know that others do not agree.

Flight Centre are sometimes able to get better deals on flights because they are so big and make so many flight bookings that they get really good discount airline tickets. 

The direct international flights to Brisbane a popular for overseas visitors especially those from USA, UK, Asia and Middle East. Gold Coast Airport has limited direct international flights to New Zealand and parts of Asia, all other visitors must go through one of the other major Australian cities.

Gold Coast Airport offers a limited but growing number of flights directly from Asian destinations and connects to other international destinations through Sydney. Regional connections from the Gold Coast are limited.

Flying To Brisbane Via Connecting Cities

If you are coming from most international destinations outside Asia you will mostly likely need to get connecting flights to Brisbane. Direct flights are not generally available.

Generally, UK, Middle Eastern and European destinations are easily accessible via the major hubs of:

  • Dubai
  • Singapore
  • Bangkok
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Tokyo
  • Hong Kong

Since LA is the only direct flight from Brisbane flights to USA are via Los Angeles.  Stopovers in exotic locations such as New Zealand, Fiji and Tahiti provide a great break to the long trip!

Alternatively, flying from Brisbane to Sydney can give more direct flight options as Sydney is the largest airport and hub in Australia.
