Airport check-in

As regards most domestic flights as well as flights departing from London Heathrow, one can take advantage of check-in kiosks not only to check-in, but also view flight details, upgrade, change to an earlier flight, check-in groups etc.

Other than that you can leave the whole thing to the staff of Qantas. Remember to have you bring electronic ticket, booking reference number or passport and visit the check-in counters.

As for the check-in times. They vary depending on the flight. Generally, the deadline for domestic flights is either 30 minutes or 60 minutes for travellers departing from an Australian international terminal. The deadline for international flights is 90 minutes.
