Once you’ve booked your flights in the app, they’ll appear in a handy section called ‘Your Trips’. This lets you easily sort through the different upcoming Qantas bookings that you have and reference them quickly.

Up until check-in opens, you can use the app to select, change and manage your seat selection. On the day of departure, the app will notify you once check-in opens with an alert sent directly to your device, as well as information about when check-in closes.

Through the app, you can check-in with a couple of taps – perfect if you’ve been rushing around, since you can do it easily in the back of a cab.

Once checked-in through the app, you’ll receive a digital boarding pass that’s also stored within the app, which means if you’re travelling with just your carry-on baggage you can skip the kiosk queues entirely and head straight to security screening.

You’ll also have your departure gate information within the Qantas App so you don’t have to bother with checking a flight listing screen or fumbling with a paper boarding pass.

If you’re at the airport early and doing some work in the lounge or relaxing with some bubbly, it can be easy to lose track of time – but since you’ve checked-in via the app, you’ll get a ping on your phone when it’s time to board, so you can concentrate on other things.

If there’s last minute gate changes or flight updates, you’ll also be pinged on your phone so that you have the latest information, putting you one step ahead if you need to rebook your flight.

Once you’ve landed at your destination, the app will have baggage carousel information in case you need to collect any bags.

So if you’re a frequent domestic traveller, using the new Qantas App to check-in is a bit of a no-brainer – not only do you save time and get the latest flight information sent directly to your device, you also don’t have to deal with paper boarding passes.
