Qantas has launched its first pop up retail
store to sell its new technologically advanced Q Bag Tags.
The store, in the Sydney Qantas Club (Terminal
3), will remain in Sydney in July and August, move to Melbourne
for September and October and then to Brisbane in November and
Qantas Club members and their guests can take
advantage of a special deal with a “buy one get one free” offer
until December. The tags normally retail at $49.95 each.
The Q Bag Tag has been designed to streamline
the bag drop functionality of Qantas’ new faster, smarter check-in
system. It replaces the need for paper tags and improves the speed
and ease by which a customer moves through the airport. The tag
contains RFID technology, allowing the tag to be electronically
imprinted with the information of the passenger and their flight
Q Bag Tags are available to all Qantas
passengers and can be used throughout the Qantas domestic network.
The pop up stores will be open during peak
afternoon travel times on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Outside of
these times, the tags can be purchased from the Qantas Club Lounge
Q Bag Tags can also be purchased online and are
being made available for sale through airport vending kiosks
(Sydney Terminal 3, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth), and will
shortly be made available at Qantas Valet Parking. Q Bag Tags are
also on sale at the Sydney Qantas Meeting Rooms and will be rolled
out to Qantas Meetings Rooms across Australia in coming months.
