QantasLink Now at Sydney Airport T3
27th Apr 2013
Qantas' own regional wing, QantasLink, will move its operation from Sydney Airport's Terminal 2 to its own Qantas Domestic Terminal 3 towards the end of the year.
The regional arm of Qantas carries an average of one million passengers annually through the old terminal, with an average frequency of 300 flights a week.
The move will allow speedy transfers and connections for QantasLink passengers to Qantas' flights on both domestic and international routes.
This will also enable QantasLink travelers to get access to Qantas business lounge as well as Qantas Club facilities, in addition to access to T3's wider range of shopping options.
The construction of a new gate exclusively for QantasLink passengers is now underway which is targeted for completion in the second half of this year.
Terminal 2 Qantas Club to close
As soon as QantasLink moves its operations to T3, Qantas will shut down its Club lounge at T2. Qantas' own budget subsidiary, Jetstar, however, will remain operating at T2.
Eligible passengers flying with Jetstar will still be able to use the Qantas lounges at T3.
Despite the anticipated increase in air passengers traveling with Qantas, the airline is not planning to expand both lounges at T3.
An airline spokesperson said that the lounge facilities of Qantas at T3 can accommodate QantasLink customers. Flight schedules of full-service Qantas and QantasLink have different peaks, so the possibility of congestion at the lounges at T3 is low.
