Qantas Introduces International Online Check-In

Los Angeles - June 22, 2009

Qantas Airways has introduced international online check-in, expanding the range of services available to customers.

Qantas Senior Executive Vice President, The Americas and Pacific, Wally R. Mariani, A.M., said the new check-in service would ensure an enhanced travel experience for customers.

"The ability to check-in online for international travel means customers can check-in at their leisure
between 24 hours and two hours before their flight from their home, office or hotel," Mr. Mariani said.

"Customers who check-in online will enjoy a faster airport experience with dedicated online check-in
counters for bag drop and necessary visa checks.

Mr. Mariani said the new services were a testament to the Qantas Group's continued investment in
customer product and services.

"Over the past few years, Qantas has invested significantly in new generation product both inflight
and on the ground, including lounge refurbishments, the introduction of our fourth cabin -International
Premium Economy - and the delivery of our A380s," he said.

"Our aim is to provide travelers with a wide range of services to ensure a seamless travel
experience, and customers can expect to see even more enhancements to domestic and
international customer services later in 2009."
