Interairline Agreements Checked Bags
I have a trip planned for next year flying Korean to Sydney on an award ticket followed by a revenue ticket on Virgin Australia(operated by Air New Zealand)and will have some checked luggage(premium cabin to Sydney, coach to Queenstown. I have a couple of questions, unfortunately Google/Flyertalk searches have been fruitless.
The flight is scheduled to arrive in Sydney at 7AM with the flight to New Zealand scheduled to depart at 9:25.
It looks like Korean has interairline agreements with both Virgin Australia and Air New Zealand, in theory I should be able to check my luggage in Seoul all the way to Queenstown, is that correct, would I just mention that at check-in?
If that’s incorrect, having never been to the Sydney airport before, is 2.5 hours more than enough time(assuming no delays) to clear customs/immigration/pick up my bags, recheck them, and clear security?
[USER=134]@Jerry[/USER] West — In theory that’s absolutely possible, though in practice it will depend on the agent in Seoul, and whether they know how to do the paperwork.
But worst case, that should be plenty of time in Sydney. Sounds like a fun trip!
