Oneworld Express Connections Hub Coming To Sydney Airport

Oneworld Express Connections Hub Coming To Sydney Airport

Sydney International Airport will soon be host to oneworld’s seventh Express Connections Hub, according to the company’s Vice President of Corporate Communications Micheal Blunt. According to Blunt, if you happen to find yourself in need of their services, you can expect the royal treatment.

Running late between flights? oneworld has you covered. From an interview with Australian Business Traveller: “…The team will they will lay down the red carpet treatment to get the customer through the airport and to the departure aircraft so that they make their connection.”

The hub will service flights from Qantas, British Airways and Cathay Pacific, among others, its sole purpose to get passengers to their connecting flights on-time, or rebook if a mischief occurs.

The article mentions that Hong Kong and Tokyo will follow Sydney with their very own hubs, come 2012. For now, oneworld has only provided a date of later this year for the facility.

  • I’m a fairly regular flyer, and I’ve never had an occasion where I’ve missed a connection because of the length of airport security/checkin/travel between terminals. I’ve either advised staff that I had a connecting flight and they’ve sped me through (even got my bags out first back in my checked luggage days), or I’ve missed the flight by 2+ hours due to an earlier flight delay.
    Of course, I usually leave myself a 2hr minimum for connecting International flights and I’ve never had to deal with the terrible majesty of Tiger/Jetstar on a tight squeeze connection.
    Having said that, if you’re a Oneworld Lounge member, I don’t imagine you’d be connecting to a low cost carrier that often
