Little disappointed with the draconian carry-on weighing small backpack carrying two laptops and wanted me to pay extra. total weight was 8 kg less than a kg over.

I can’t tell you how satisfied I am with Quantas. I wish we had such excellent service in the US. Thank you. Please give Jamie a raise- she’s awesome!

Kylee at the counter helped us give my cousins baggage that American Airlines hadn’t deliver to our hotel. The bag had been there since day prior and they had made no effort. Kylee was great.

We were transitioning from International to domestic and was really nice to see that we could just recheck our bags and conveniently get on shuttle.

Using Virgin Australia was very satisfying and an excellent experience. The staff was great and very friendly, in addition to being very professional.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Cairns

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport cafes and less time moving through security on your way to Cairns, follow these helpful tips:

  • Ensure your passport and boarding pass are easy to reach. You will be asked to present them straightaway.
  • Wallets, belts and mobile phones are to be put in a tub for X-raying. If you walk into the body scanner with any of these items, you'll be requested to turn back and remove them.
  • Ensure your electronic devices and laptop are within easy reach. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine in separate trays.
  • Hand cream, toothpaste and other toiletry items in cream, liquid or gel form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
  • Loosen your shoelaces before entering the body scanner. Depending on what sort of shoes you're wearing, security may ask you to remove them.
  • Pocketknives and corkscrews are prohibited inside the aircraft. Put them in your checked luggage to avoid leaving them at the security checkpoint.
*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
