With the G20 proceedings kicking off this week, Brisbane Airport is handing out free Tim Tams and coffee vouchers to travellers that may be delayed by the arrival or departure of government aircraft.
The flights most likely to run behind schedule are those taking off or touching down this Thursday, Friday and Sunday in the afternoons and evenings, with airport staff on standby to distribute goodies to inconvenienced jetsetters.
Rachel Crowley, Brisbane Airport Corporation’s Head of Corporate Relations, said that BAC wanted to make sure the travelling public experienced some of the excitement of the G20, despite possible minor delays to their travel.
“The G20 Leaders Summit is a wonderful opportunity for our city, state and country, but it does mean it won’t be entirely ‘business as usual’ at the airport,” she said.
Passengers awaiting their flights may be able to catch a glimpse of Air Force One ferrying US President Barack Obama to the Sunshine State – although its arrival and departure times won’t be publicised.
Visitors to the airport can also pass the time at one of several ‘Selfie Centres’, where they can catch an image of themselves in front of a selection of the world’s leaders.
Brisbane’s domestic terminal will play host to a collaboration with La Boite Theatre Company, a chalk art extravaganza, and G20 flag tattoo give-aways over the week ahead.
