On Friday, Qantas announced a revised boarding time, requiring domestic flights in Australia to check in at least 30 minutes in advance.

It is understood that Qantas' new regulations will be officially implemented on August 8. Qantas changed the original boarding time from 5 minutes to 15 minutes. The reason is to ensure the punctuality of the flight and speed up the boarding process. It should be noted that this new regulation applies to those passengers who take domestic flights in Australia and do not carry luggage. In addition, without luggage, Qantas Clubs, Gold members, Platinum members, Qantas frequent flyers and business travelers can check in 30 minutes in advance. In addition, the check-in procedures of international passengers will not be affected by this new regulation.

In a statement, the head of Qantas Customer Service Department Helen Gray stated, “We clearly understand the importance of arriving at the destination on time for passengers. In order to achieve this, we have introduced a series of measures to speed up The boarding process, so that the flight can take off on time. By taking the measure of allowing passengers to board the plane as soon as possible, we will complete the relevant procedures faster and allow more flights to depart on time."

Gray continued, "We learned from relevant data that most passengers will check in 12 to 24 hours in advance through apps or the Internet, but only less than 2% of passengers will check in 15 to 30 minutes before departure. Check-in procedures. In this view, for most passengers, the revised boarding time policy implemented this time will not have an impact."

In order to allow the aircraft to operate on time, Qantas also introduced zoning procedures to speed up boarding. Qantas also provides separate barcodes for passengers with two boarding bags and requires them to place a relatively small bag under the seat and a larger bag in the upper luggage compartment.

In addition, passengers can also use the Qantas official app to check in in advance. Related services are available 24 hours before the flight and closed 45 minutes before the flight. It is worth mentioning that Qantas will also send SMS to passengers to inform them to check in early.
