Find the cheapest flight to Brisbane

Brisbane Airport (airport code BNE) is in a suburb of this fast-growing Australian city. The airport is about 13 km away from central Brisbane in the town of Eagle Farm, Queensland. It is only about a 15-20 minute drive from the airport to downtown Brisbane. Most international travelers will probably enter Australia via Sydney’s Kingsford Smith International Airport or Melbourne Airport, but because the city of Brisbane is growing so quickly it is increasingly likely that its airport will become more popular. The airport is already undergoing an expansion which should be finished by the end of 2008. If you are balking at the price of direct flights to Brisbane, see if flying into Sydney or Melbourne is cheaper – then you can get another flight to Brisbane on a budget carrier like Virgin Blue.
