Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 30 July 2010

Qantas has launched a trial of its all-new Next Generation Check-in system at its domestic terminal at Perth Airport.

The Next Generation Check-in is designed to dramatically reduce check-in times, and eliminate queues for customers, allowing them to move through the check-in area with greater speed and ease.

A group of approximately 100,000 Qantas Frequent Flyers who regularly travel through Perth have been invited to take part in the Next Generation Check-in trial, said Qantas Chief Executive Officer, Mr Alan Joyce. The majority of these customers will have received their new Qantas Frequent Flyer Card embedded with intelligent Q chip technology ... With one touch of their Frequent Flyer Card on our new Q Card Readers, passengers will now be checked in within seconds. The new card will also act as a permanent boarding pass.

A priority security lane has also opened in Perth featuring improved preparation areas and new walk-through equipment to support faster processing through the screening area.

Throughout the Perth trial, construction and training will continue in Sydney, which will be ready to launch Next Generation Check-in later in 2010, followed by Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra in 2011. The program is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2011.
