There are also plans to complement the F&B offerings with a new mix of fashion, accessories and other specialty retail by 2020.
Proposed concepts include a grab-and-go offering; specialist coffee roaster; specialist sweet and coffee offering; café court quick service cuisine such as Asian, gourmet burger, Mexican, Greek or Turkish; iconic restaurants with high-quality food offering; a licensed restaurant; and all-day café/restaurants that source local southeast Queensland produce.

Brisbane Airport’s Domestic Terminal redevelopment
BAC recently completed stage 1 of the retail redevelopment to the Domestic Terminal, with a A$15m (US$11m) upgrade of the Virgin end of the Domestic Terminal which opened in June 2016. This saw the introduction of 19 new retail concessions including an upgraded food and beverage offering.
In January 2019, BAC will assume entire operational control across the terminal to create a single terminal with common systems. This transition will be the catalyst for Stage 2 of the Retail Redevelopment including a A$40m (US$30m) upgrade of the Domestic Terminal and retail offerings in the Northern (Qantas end) and central areas of the terminal.
Works are scheduled to commence in late 2018 and when complete will deliver more than 50 new and refurbished stores.
