Preparing to Fly

Checking in

It’s easy to check-in at Avalon Airport, no matter where you are flying to! All our kiosks offer check-in across domestic and international flights, as well as all airlines.

As check-in times can vary from airline to airline, we always recommend you consult with the airline before you leave for the airport. For domestic travel, check-in will open two hours before the scheduled flight time. International travel requires an earlier check-in than domestic, opening three hours before the scheduled flight time. 

Once checked in and after undergoing a security check, domestic travellers can move to the domestic lounge to wait with family and friends.

Tourism Refund Scheme (TRS)

If you have items in your checked baggage that you would like to claim for TRS, please cross to the ABF window in the forecourt and show the items to the officer, to be issued with a validation certificate before you check in. Then, repack your items, keep the receipt and validation certificate on your person, and check-in as normal.


Domestic Passengers: Domestic passengers, friends and loved ones must be screened before entering the sterile area (the secure part of the terminal – departure lounge). Personal effects are CT scanned and people entering must pass through a Body Scanner. This is supplemented by random checks for explosives. Please refer to your airline for specific information about baggage.
