Melbourne Airport guide

Important Information for guests travelling from Melbourne Domestic Airport

The Virgin Australia check-in area at Melbourne Domestic Airport is currently undergoing an upgrade to the check-in and baggage drop facilities.

During this time, self-service kiosks will not be in use, and as a result, check-in and baggage drop will only be available at a select number of service counters and may result in some congestion at the airport.

Prior to your upcoming Virgin Australia flight, we recommend you:

  • Check-in online prior to proceeding to the airport (even if travelling with checked baggage); and
  • Arrive at least 60 minutes prior to your flight to drop checked baggage
During this construction period, we ask that you follow instructions from the Virgin Australia Ground Crew members and any signage in the area.
