Security crackdown creates check-in delays

Since September 11 there has been changes to travel procedures overseas for business travellers, some of these changes will take place in Australia.

Many overseas destinations do not allow an e-ticket it must be a paper ticket, online bookings will continue but you will have to have a printed copy of your booking from your computer, or travel agency. No longer is a passport or driver's licence sufficient identification to collect e-ticket in much of the northern world, this will also be implemented on many Australian flights.

Make sure your computer is working and has batteries inserted, if you can't start it up and shut it down you will not be permitted to travel.

Remember to allow extra time to check-in. International flights in the major northern world airports require you to check-in three hours before take-off, and northern domestic routes two hours.
