With the Trans-tasman bubble about to go live and the first time "mass" international travel is due to take place - is the Qantas Transfer bus operating and open?

I've checked Qantas website but not sure if it's up to date or not?

Transferring from T2 and T3 (domestic airports) to T1 (international airport)

The train would likely be much much faster, given it goes every 5-10 mins. There will be little point in running a frequent bus transfer service just for the few transferring NZ passengers.

Mind you the complimentary Sydney Airport terminal bus has also been suspended and am not sure if that’s going to be reinstated even though it would cater to passagens of all airlines and of course non-passengers also who may need to go from one terminal to the other.

Yeah Im sure the driver will love you after waiting over 1.5 hours for a $10 fare.

It’s closer to $25 but yup they don’t like it that’s for sure.

Can confirm Qantas international transfer is running and available from Gate 15 of Sydney Domestic terminal, as I have recently used it. It operates only when there are Qantas flights scheduled and have passengers on connecting tickets as far as I'm aware. As of 23 Jan 2022 it is operating from 7.15am - 10.15am and again from 1.45pm - 9.45pm, every 30 minutes.

Now that international flights are steadily coming back, has anyone had any experience with this service recently? Will be transiting from T3 to T1 in a weeks time, and am hoping the 2.5 hours on the ground will be enough.
