Qantas Launches New Domestic Transfer Facility
Sydney, 14 July 2010
Qantas today launched its new Sydney Domestic Transfer Facility at Sydney International Airport.
Qantas Group Executive Customer and Marketing, Ms Lesley Grant, said Qantas customers now transferring from international to domestic flights will enjoy a new purpose built transfer facility, which will provide faster transfer to Qantas domestic flights.
“The new transfer facility is fifty per cent larger than the current facility and includes a new spacious check-in area, six additional check-in counters and an additional bag drop area,” said Ms Grant.
“Additional check-in staff and counters will ensure Qantas customers are transferred to their domestic flight quickly for passengers to meet their connecting domestic flights.
“An express bag drop facility will provide an even quicker transfer for customers who have their onward boarding passes and bags tagged to their final destination.”
Similar to regular check-in at the airport, the new transfer facility will house both premium and economy check-in counters. It also offers increased seating capacity.
The new purpose built facility remains on the arrivals level at Sydney International Airport, and the process for customers transferring remains the same.
The shuttle bus continues to operate between the international terminal and domestic terminals every ten minutes during peak times and every twenty minutes during off peak times.
