You must start your journey at Brisbane Airport to purchase a ticket online.
Excluding AirtrainConnect from the Gold Coast, you'll notice it's not possible to book an Airtrain trip to the Brisbane Airport on our website. This is because travel in this direction would involve beginning your journey from a train station staffed by QR, and not Airtrain staff. At this stage, QR cannot accept our online ticketing. So for travel from a QR station to the Airport, you simply need to purchase a ticket at the station prior to travel on the train. Tickets are available at every QR station.
From your Local Station
Every suburban station in the QR network is able to sell you a ticket to the Airport. You'll find friendly staff to help you at the QR station ticket window, with all the information you need to get to the Airport on the train. Should your platform be unattended, there are ticketing machines that operate at all hours.
If you're travelling from a suburban station, all lines except the Gold Coast and some Beenleigh line stations (check the Interactive Map) require you to change trains at Central Station, Bowen Hills or Eagle Junction stations. Check the station's monitors to confirm the right platform for the Airtrain.
From the Airport
You'll find there are two Airtrain Service counters positioned in the Brisbane Domestic Airport terminal. One is near the Qantas baggage collection carousel, and the other is near the Virgin Australia baggage collection carousel. Customer Service staff at these counters can help you with any information about all of Airtrain's product range. You can purchase your tickets while you wait for your luggage to arrive.
You can find Airtrain Customer Service staff at the station platform ticket windows, the Domestic Terminal Station and International Terminal Station. The platform offices are open from 5:45am until the last train at 10:00pm every day of the year.
You'll be glad to know you can use your Cabcharge vouchers to purchase Airtrain tickets from our station platform offices. So next time the queue for the Taxi looks obscene, simply walk up to the station platform and use your Cabcharge to purchase a ticket for the Airtrain.
Locations Around Brisbane
Tickets can be purchased prior to going to the train station in Brisbane at a number of locations.

CBD Ticket Books
Do you travel often, or want the best deal on transfers between Brisbane Airport and the City? Then purchase Airtrain CBD tickets in books of 10, at a discounted rate. You can pick up Ticket books for $145 each. That's $14.50 per trip instead of the usual $16.00.
Ticket books are also very popular for businesses that have staff travelling through Brisbane Airport. It's an easy way to manage the cost of transfers with fixed ticket pricing. They can issue tickets from books of pre-purchased CBD tickets, and save money against the cost of Taxis.
