Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 9 December 2011

Qantas has launched the first stage of its international Faster, Smarter Check-In with new Q Card Readers now operational at key trans-Tasman ports.

Faster, Smarter Check-in has proved so popular with our frequent flyers for their domestic travel, we are now implementing stage one of our international roll out with Sydney, Auckland and Wellington, said Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce. Our trans-Tasman frequent flyers can now scan their frequent flyer card and passport and retrieve their boarding pass within seconds of arriving at the airport. Its all about cutting down the journey time for our customers.

The new trans-Tasman Q Card Reader Check-In means Platinum, Gold and Silver Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members travelling across the Tasman will be able to use their Qantas card to check-in at an internationally configured Q Card Reader, streamlining their international experience.

Customers travelling between Australia and New Zealand, who hold an Australian or New Zealand passport, will be able to scan their Qantas card at the Q icon as per the process for the domestic Q Card Reader. They then scan their passport at the reader located below the Q icon, completing their check-in.

The introduction of the Q Card Readers forms the first phase of Qantas plans to broaden the use of the technology to streamline the international check-in experience.

Trans-Tasman Q Card Readers will be progressively introduced to Melbourne, Brisbane and Queenstown throughout 2011, with plans to rollout the technology in Christchurch next year.
