Operating hours

The Gold Coast Airport terminal is operating on reduced hours and is open when passenger services are operating.

Due to changes to flight schedules, there has been a temporary change to the operating hours of some of our food and beverage and retail operators. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The hours of operation for the runway and associated airfield operations remain unchanged for general aviation and other activities.

Temporary arrivals changes

To better facilitate Queensland border controls, arriving passengers are currently being processed at the northern end of the terminal, in the international arrivals area. Anyone wanting to meet arriving passengers may do so in the international arrivals hall.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What measures are you taking to ensure the safety of passengers? 

We have developed a range of hygiene and communication measures for the terminal to help keep our passengers safe.

These include signage and queuing markers to remind people of the importance of physical distancing where possible, with some seating removed or marked unavailable to ensure this occurs. Increased cleaning will continue in our terminal, with particular focus on high traffic touch points, while hand sanitisers are in place throughout the terminal.

We need our passengers and other customers to help us keep them as as well. Please use online options to lower the risks, follow directions displayed on signage, don't travel if you are sick and download the COVIDSafe app.

Q: Will there be physical distancing in the terminal's dining and retail areas?

We are continuing to work closely with our food and beverage operators, retailers and other tenants about strategies for hygiene and physical distancing. Our partners have put a range of measures in place to reduce the risks.

We need our passengers and other customers to help us keep them safe as well. We ask them to please follow distancing and hygiene directions displayed on signage throughout the terminal, including dining and retail areas.

Health and hygiene items will be available for sale through our pharmacy and other retail outlets at Gold Coast Airport. Passengers are also welcome to bring their own products with them.
