Virgin Australia’s Boeing 737-800 Registered VH-YFW was the first airline to depart on Brisbane’s new runway on Sunday, 12 July 2020. We have photographed and filmed this project from visualisation to the first flight and after eight years of construction and five decades of planning, the new and efficient runway system will provide Brisbane Airport with the greatest runway capacity of any capital city airport in the country. The $1.1 billion privately funded project is the largest in the history of Brisbane Airport since its opening in 1988, and worth nearly as much as the initial cost of the airport when Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) bought it in 1997 for $1.38 billion. We are proud to have been a part of this amazing infrastructure project.
