Next Generation Check-in and Q Bag Tag
Next Generation Check-in will dramatically reduce domestic check-in times for customers, allowing them to move through the check-in area with speed and ease.
With one touch of your Qantas card on Qantas’s Q Card Readers, passengers will be checked-in within seconds. The Q Bag Tag means bags can be dropped at the auto Bag Drop with another touch of your Qantas card.
Q Bag Tag is a cutting edge innovation and Qantas is proud to be the first airline to introduce this world-leading technology to our customers.
The Q Bag Tag automatically links customers’ luggage with their flight details when they use the auto Bag Drop facilities located in Sydney T3 and Perth domestic terminals.
Qantas Frequent Flyers checking in at Sydney T3 and Perth domestic terminals will be able to use their Q Bag Tags when checking in bags for travel across the Qantas domestic network. Q Bag Tag technology will be progressively introduced to more ports across the Qantas network throughout 2011.
Next Generation Check-in provides our customers with a smarter, faster check-in experience and we're excited to be delivering this technology for customers in our regional ports.
Twenty-one regional airports, including sixteen QantasLink ports, will receive Next Generation Check-in technology over the next four months.
Albury, Rockhampton, Karratha, Broome, Coffs Harbour and Mackay are the first ports to benefit from the introduction of Q Card Reader technology, and will be shortly followed by Emerald, Hobart, Kalgoorlie, Port Hedland and Port Macquarie.
Q Card Readers will also be installed in Gladstone, Port Macquarie, Tamworth, Alice Springs, Newman, Wagga Wagga, Townsville, Launceston, Paraburdoo, Darwin and Cairns.
Platinum, Gold and Silver Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members will be checked in within seconds with one touch of their Qantas card on the Q Card Readers.
