Nothing beats the satisfaction of clicking the Book Now button on those flights you’ve been eyeing off for weeks. But once your flights are booked, it’s time to start planning for your upcoming trip. As well as researching accommodation and planning your transport to and from the airport, you’ll need to read up on the policies and inclusions of your chosen airline to make sure there are no nasty surprises when you arrive at the airport. To make life easier for you, here’s a quick guide to everything you’ll need to know about your airline if you’re planning a domestic flight out of Sydney Airport.
