Trans-Tasman Business

Flying to New Zealand has never been easier

Check-in

New! Qantas is piloting check-in kiosks and bag drop on selected flights to Auckland from Sydney International Airport - designed to offer you a faster and easier check-in experience.

Platinum, Gold and Silver Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members who are Australian and New Zealand passport holders can use our award-winning* International Q Card Readers+ for direct flights on Trans-Tasman routes.

You can also check in before you get to the airport with online check-in from 24 hours up until 2 hours before departure. All you need is access to the internet and a printer to request your seat and print your boarding pass.

Alternatively, our friendly staff are on hand at the airport ready to assist you with checking in. We recommend that you check in at least 2 hours before your departure time.

Once you have checked-in, you can make your way to our exclusive international Business lounge to relax before your flight. At the gate, a dedicated boarding lane for international flights allows you to board the aircraft at any stage.

Why not experience door-to-door comfort with Qantas Valet Parking? Every passenger flying on Qantas, QantasLink or Jetstar can enjoy the convenience of our Valet Parking. You can earn Frequent Flyer points on every dollar spent.
