Qantas has started rolling out Next Generation
Check-In Technology across its regional network.
"Next Generation Check-in provides our customers
with a smarter, faster check-in experience and we're excited to be
delivering this technology for customers in our regional ports,"
said Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce. "When our customers told us that
queuing was a point of pain we responded. Next Generation Check-In
has been successfully implemented in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne
and has dramatically reduced domestic check-in times for customers
allowing them to move through the check-in area with speed and
Twenty-one regional airports, including sixteen
QantasLink ports, are scheduled to receive Next Generation
Check-In technology over the next four months.
Albury, Rockhampton, Karratha, Broome, Coffs
Harbour and Mackay are the first ports to benefit from the
introduction of Q Card Reader technology, and will be shortly
followed by Emerald, Hobart, Kalgoorlie, Port Hedland and Port
Platinum, Gold and Silver Frequent Flyers and
Qantas Club members should be able to check-in within seconds with
just one touch of their Qantas card on the Q Card Readers.
Q Card Readers will also be installed in
Gladstone, Port Macquarie, Tamworth, Alice Springs, Newman, Wagga
Wagga, Townsville, Launceston, Paraburdoo, Darwin and Cairns.
Next Generation Check-in will be progressively
introduced to Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra throughout 2011. The
program is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2011.
