The construction is part of a joint development between Scott Flynn Properties and the Flynn Property Group. The new Pullman and Ibis hotels would primarily cater for domestic guests in the shorter term, but increased numbers coming through the international terminal would also be captured. Brisbane Airport will also be opening a second runway in 2020.
