Qantas launches international Faster, Smarter Check-In


Qantas Card Reader

International Faster, Smarter Check-in has been launched in Sydney, Auckland and Wellington, while plans are also in place to introduce it to Melbourne, Brisbane, Queenstown and Christchurch.

The introduction of Q Card Readers at key trans-Tasman airports marks the launch of Qantas’ international Faster, Smarter Check-in initiative.

The new readers will allow Platinum, Gold and Silver Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members travelling across the Tasman to use their Qantas Card to check-in.

Customers travelling between Australia and New Zealand, who hold an Australian or New Zealand passport, can scan their Q Card passport to complete the check-in process.

Alan Joyce, CEO, Qantas, said: “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.

“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. It’s all about cutting down the journey time for our customers.”

Plans are now in place to introduce the Q Card Readers to Melbourne, Brisbane and Queenstown before the end of the year, before it’s introduced in Christchurch next year.

The roll out of the international Faster, Smarter Check-in project follows the successful launch of the domestic Next Generation Check-in project, which was recognised at the Future Travel Experience Awards in Vancouver at FTE 2011.
