Virgin Australia will spend the next three years redeveloping its domestic terminal at Melbourne Airport’s Terminal 3.

Expected to reduce check-in time, an automated check-in process in T3 will be available to passengers by mid-2019. This will include automated bag-drop facilities; enhanced self-service kiosks for passengers to check in, print boarding passes, add bags and print baggage tags; manned service pods for passengers who prefer assistance at check-in; and a service desk for traditional check-in and general enquiries. 

The redevelopment includes the repositioning of security screening facilities, two additional baggage carousels and enhanced features for premium passengers. 

Virgin Australia Lounge guests will pass through security screening prior to entering the lounge, ensuring a seamless transition to boarding gates after entering the lounge.  

Business-class guests, Platinum and Gold Velocity Frequent Flyers will have access to a dedicated Premium Entry, check-in, bag drop and security screening features as well as direct access to the Virgin Australia Lounge.

In addition, a new internal ramp between T3 and Terminal 4 will allow for general security screening to be repositioned and will reduce passenger congestion in T3, offer better access to the new retail offering in Terminal 4 and create a more spacious security screening area in T3.
