AUSTRALIA. Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has issued Requests for Proposals (RFP) for key retail and dining locations as part of a A$40 million (US$30 million) redevelopment of the northern end of its Domestic Terminal, which serves Qantas flights. Categories include food & beverage, fashion & accessories plus news, books and travel essentials.

Works will commence in April 2018. When complete in December 2020, the project will deliver 70 shops, including 51 new or refurbished retail outlets, an upgraded food court, views across the apron and tarmac and more natural lighting.
