There are many factors to consider when planning airspace design, with the most important being safety. Other factors include minimising noise for the community, efficiency of operations and unrestricted operations for other airports.
Fiona Lawton from Airservices Australia explains the factors considered for Brisbane's new airspace design, which will come into effect when Brisbane's new runway opens in mid-2020.
Brisbane’s New Runway is due to open in 2020 and once open, will give Brisbane the most efficient runway system in Australia. It will serve the needs of South East Queensland for decades to come, maintaining and growing our connections with the world as our city continues to grow, while building the gateway to Queensland & Australia.
