Hi, my manager is arriving at Sydney Airport Terminal 3 (TSV/SYD) then catching a REX airline flight from Sydney to Dubbo from Terminal 2. Is there a map you could provide or some details on how he would get between the terminals and how long this may take as he has a 2 hour limit. Thank you
Hi, I'm a US citizen and will be arriving from Los Angeles at 7:30, and have a 9:00 flight to Brisbane. Is that enough time? Will I need to go though customs in Sydney or Brisbane? And if customs is in Sydney, does luggage go all the way though?
Is WLG to SYD considered domestic? Appears from flight numbers and info on Qantas site I'll have to change from T3 to T1. Flying from WLG to SYD to HNL all on Qantas flights 1641 and 31. Looks like a distance and wondering will I have to go through an inspection for self and carry on bag and how much time is recommended to allow? Right now tentative time only allows 1.5 hrs and am wondering what the recommended amount of time is and will I need to go through another "inspection". Thanks!
Hi-When transferring from a Jetstar International flight to China Airlines flight to Taiwan, do I need to changes terminals and do I need a special visa for transit via Australia? Carrying on luggage only. 6 hour connection time. Thanks
Arriving from Abu Dhabi and connecting to a flight to Fiji (both flights in one booking and probably with bags checked through), will I have to go through immigration, collect bags and recheck them? Or will they just security screen me and let me into international departure airside and the bags just go through?
Hi Rainer, as you are only transiting through SYD to Fiji no you will not have to collect your bags until you reach Fiji as Australia is not your final country. If you were transferring to a domestic flight within Australia then yes you would have to collect your luggage to proceed through the security and customs checks then re-check in your luggage.
