Gold Coast Airport opens dedicated 'Premium Passenger' security lane

Gold Coast Airport will open a fast-track security lane for 'premium passengers' this weekend.

Airport spokesperson Karen Harrigan tells Australian Business Traveller that the new priority lane will operational from this Saturday December 1st, although the signage won't be erected until the following week.

The service will available to all passengers travelling in business class any domestic or international flights out of the Gold Coast.

It's also open to top-tier frequent flyers including Platinum-grade members of Qantas and Virgin Australia plus Air New Zealand's Gold Elite members.

With Qantas due to open its new Gold Coast Qantas Club lounge on Tuesday December 4th to complement the airline's three daily Sydney-Gold Coast flights, alongside Virgin Australia's own Gold Coast lounge and roster of business class flights, it seems a good time to be a Gold Coast business traveller!

    Fantastic, Gold Coast security lines are generally pretty good. I hope this is open on Saturdays as this is when the airport is the busiest!

    Considering how breathtakingly busy the GC airport is, the security lanes are always short and smooth flowing!

    Sorry Liam, Richard, I must be going at th wrong time. Yesterday morning, at least 10 minutes to get through. And just like the supermarket checkouts, they open another lane when you just about get through. I think the security lane let the Gold Coast airport down. it's the only negative. I use it a lot. I didnt know about the new entry for FFs.  Where is it?

    Absolutely atrocious, standard waits during the middle of the day 10 minutes. No enforcement at all and when queried staff dont really seem bothered.

    The security staff here seem to move half as quick as sydney and melbourne which always helps!
