What are domestic flights?

Kangaroo Icon

Domestic flights fly internally, meaning departure and arrival both take place within the same country. These flights tend to be available in bigger countries, such as within the USA, India, and Australia, and are also referred to as short-haul flights, meaning they tend to have a duration of 2-4 hours.

Internal flights within Australia are available through numerous air carriers, including Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar. Carriers such as Tiger Airways offer a cheap alternative, although they don't offer the level of service in comparison to the others.

 

Why book flights within Australia?

Sydney Opera House Icon in Blue

Australia is a stunning and vast country. From the rugged Kalbarri in the West, to the cultral hub of Melbourne in the South, catching an internal flight is the best way to experience all that the country has to offer.

Domestic flights are available from all of Australia's major cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Darwin. Cheap flights can also be found from smaller airports, including the stunning Gold Coast and Proserpine.

FAQs

Is a passport required when travelling domestically in Australia?

All passengers, including children and infants, are required to provide ID on flights within Australia. ID can include a passport, driver's licence, or birth certificate. So if you are Australian and have any other listed identification, then a passport is not required.

Do I need a passport if traveling to Tasmania from Australia?

Tasmania is an isolated island state off Australia’s south coast. Technically, no, a passport is not required to fly from Australia to Tasmania, but for practical purposes, it is recommended! Tasmania passport requirements state that a passport is not required to visit Tasmania. However, you will need one to enter back into Australia. A visa is also required to visit the country, but those travelling for tourism or business for less than 90 days can opt to obtain a label-free visa known as an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) for a small fee.

Do I still need to go through security if travelling on a domestic flight in Australia?

Passengers travelling on flights that don't leave the country's airspace still need to comply with all airport security procedures and are still subject to screening prior to arriving in the boarding area. However, travellers are not required to pass through customs or immigration before boarding. On arrival, passengers are able to disembark and head straight to baggage claim, without having to pass through immigration or customs.

How much baggage can I take on an internal flight?

Most airlines will offer free hand luggage when travelling in Australia. We always recommend checking with each airline to find out more!

Qantas: Baggage is included on every Qantas fare. No single piece can exceed 32kg.

REX Regional Express: one carry-on baggage and a personal item is allowed. Carry-on baggage cannot exceed 23cm (9") x 34cm (13") x 48cm (19") and not heavier than 7kg.
