Flights from Brussels
Qantas does not offer direct flights from Brussels to Australia or any other destination. Via a transfer in London, however, you can easily travel on to Australia on board of Qantas. After all, the airline flies from London to Melbourne and Sydney every day. From there, you can of course travel on to another destination in Australia, New Zeeland or Asia. That way, you can explore the world with Qantas!
For international flights, Qantas offers two check-in options: online or at the airport. Online check-in is easy via Manage Your Booking. On flights within Australia, you can also check in via your mobile: super easy, since you don’t have to print a boarding pass! In addition, Qantas has started to deploy Auto Check-in for flights within Australia. Check-in for international flights closes 90 (Economy/Premium Economy) to 60 (Business/First) minutes before flight departure.

If the restrictions for free allowed baggage aren’t exceeded, special baggage can, in most cases, be taken for free in the cabin or as checked baggage. For musical instruments that don’t fit within the limits for carry-on or checked baggage, or if you’d rather not carry them as baggage, you can book an additional seat. In that case, the instrument can’t weigh more than 7 kg. If you want to take sports equipment, you can check the Qantas online overview for all rules per type of equipment.

In carry-on luggage, liquids, gels, pastes and aerosols can only travel in containers of max. 100 ml each. These must be wrapped in a transparent and resealable plastic bag.
Sydney Airport, or Kingsford Smith International Airport, is one of the oldest airports in the world. Sydney Airport opened in 1920 and has become Australia’s most frequented airport. It’s located about 8 km south of the centre of Sydney, and is easily accessible by bus or train (about 13 minutes to the centre).
On the plane
At Qantas, you can choose the comfort level that suits you best: Economy, Premium Economy, Business or First Class. As an Economy Class passenger, you have access to your personal in-flight entertainment system with over 500 (for smaller planes) to 1500 options. Moreover, you can make phone calls and reply to texts via this entertainment system. On long-haul flights, you receive a blanket and cotton pillow. Of course, a delicious meal will be served as well.
If you prefer additional legroom, a more spacious seat and a more extensive menu, you should opt for Premium Economy. On board, you will receive sparkling wine or another beverage; and you can enjoy a modern menu, inspired by Australian restaurateur Neil Perry.
In the luxurious Business Class seats, you can do whatever you want, whether that is working or resting. The special Qantas Skybed seats can be turned into a lovely two-meter long, fully flat bed. In addition, this seat has a massage function. Of course, the meals served are high quality, and accompanied by matching wines. A sommelier is even on board to guide you in your choice! If you’re travelling on the Airbus A380, you can catch up with your travel companion in the Business Lounge on the plane. And since there’s never enough luxury, Qantas First Class features a private suite with a seat that turns into an extra wide bed in a snap, an ottoman and a 17-inch screen. An eight-course menu and a luxurious travel kit including personal care products complete your Qantas First experience.
Qantas has a fleet of 117 aircrafts, of which a considerable number (Airbus A330-200, Airbus A330-300 and Boeing 737-800 aircrafts) are currently being remodelled for even more up-to-date comfort. Qantas owns modern aircrafts as well, such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Qantas has the largest amount of wide-body aircrafts of all domestic airlines.
