TRAVEL TIP | The next time you arrive at Sydney Airport's T3 domestic Qantas terminal only to face a long line at the security checkpoint, cast a glance to your far left for a time-saving shortcut.
T3 has two security channels, you see: the main, centrally-located one which just about everybody heads for (shown below in the calm between the peak-hour storms)...
... and a lesser-known lane opposite the Qantas priority baggage check-in zone.
This secondary security checkpoint is usually open during peak hours and favoured by Qantas crew as well as frequent flyers in the know.
There's no premium lane for business class travellers or Platinum card-holders, but depending on the length of that snaking slow-moving queue at the main security checkpoint, this secondary lane can prove faster and less frustrating.
