Departures

Check-in

Ensure you check-in for your flight before you arrive at the airport. Check-in for domestic flights opens 24 hours before departure and closes 30 minutes before departure. 

There are four easy options to complete check-in:  ​

Download your digital boarding pass after checking in online and you’re ready to go.  

Customers who require special assistance, unaccompanied minors or large groups, please make yourself known to our friendly customer service agents who will be able to assist you with the check-in process.

Our domestic airports have gone cashless. The purchase of tickets, additional baggage and other Qantas flight related products can be made at qantas.com. Excess baggage payments can still be made by credit card at our self-serve bag tag kiosks.

Seat selection

Complimentary seat selection is available online for all domestic flights from the moment you book your flight. If you haven’t selected a seat before you complete your online check-in, you will be assigned a seat. You can change your seat online up to 30 minutes before your flight departure.

Checked baggage

Don’t forget, if you’re travelling with checked bags, you need to drop them off at least 30 minutes before departure for domestic flights. Use your digital boarding pass at our self-serve bag tag kiosks to print your baggage tags before proceeding to the self-serve bag drop. If you’re a Qantas Frequent Flyer with a Q Bag Tag, you can head straight to bag drop and use this to tag any baggage you may want to check-in when flying within Australia.
