Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Friday, 11 December 2009

Qantas has opened a new security screening facility at its domestic terminal in Perth. The new facility is part of the airline's $75 million terminal upgrade program, and is expected to reduce congestion and waiting times around the screening point.

Qantas Regional General Manager for Western Australia, Mr Ian Gay said, "The security screening facility has been re-located and enlarged to provide extra capacity and reduce waiting times."

Key terminal improvements already completed include:

- three additional baggage carousels;
- six new check-in counters;
- a larger aerobridge able to accommodate wide-body A330 aircraft operating east-west services; and
- the upgrade of a gate from Boeing 737 to Boeing 767 capability.

"Along with our major terminal upgrade, Qantas customers in Perth will enjoy the very best airport experience in Australia when Airport of the Future is rolled-out next year," Mr Gay added. "In mid-2010, Perth will be the first to trial Qantas' next generation check-in. Qantas Frequent Flyers from Silver through to Platinum, and all Qantas Club members, will have their member card embedded with an intelligent chip that will transform the card into a personal boarding pass linked to a permanent bag tag, halving check in time and reducing queues. Check-in facilities will also be upgraded for Bronze Frequent Flyers and non-frequent flyers."

Beyond Perth, next year the regional West Australian airports of Broome, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Port Hedland, Newman and Paraburdoo will see technology upgrades including automated gate boarding facilities.
