Weekend travelling in Australia

Last Updated: 01/10/2015 03:36 PM

Airports around Australia will be busy from Friday and across the weekend with the end of school holidays in many states, major sporting events being held in Melbourne and Sydney, and a number of public holidays.

Here are some tips to make your travel experience as smooth as possible this weekend.

  • Plan your travel to arrive at the airport at least one hour before your domestic flight departs.
  • Save time by checking in online before you get to the airport, and if you only have carry-on baggage avoid the queues and go straight to the departure gate.
  • Be aware that daylight savings comes into effect in many Australian states from Sunday 4 October, so ensure you’re relying on the right time on the clock before your flight. Your itinerary lists the correct local flight times.

We look forward to flying thousands of passengers across Australia this weekend, and hope you enjoy your journey.
