Passengers using the services of the airline Jetstar will have to get to the airport earlier in the future, as the carrier has announced a series of changes that it hopes will increase the punctuality and reliability of flights.

The new changes were first announced to users of this company on Tuesday morning, via e-mail and text messages.

Domestic passengers

Check-in and baggage claim will close 40 minutes before take-off, which is ten minutes earlier than before.

Boarding gates will close 20 minutes before take-off, which is 15 minutes earlier than before.

International travelers

Check-in and baggage claim will close at least 60 minutes before international flights.

Boarding gates for international flights will close 20 minutes before, as for domestic flights.

Reasons for changes

According to him, these changes were made in order to harmonize with other budget airlines around the world.
