COFFS Harbour passengers frustrated at having to change terminals at Sydney airport to catch a connecting Qantas flight will soon need to worry no more.

QantasLink customers travelling to and from Sydney will soon enjoy exclusive world-class facilities following an upgrade will see the regional airline move into the Qantas Domestic Terminal, Terminal 3.

QantasLink Executive Manager John Gissing said operating QantasLink and Qantas Domestic flights from the same terminal was set to deliver big benefits to business and leisure travellers flying to or from Sydney and beyond.

"With QantasLink in Terminal 3, customers can expect smoother connections between regional, domestic and international services," said Mr Gissing.

"This means passengers travelling from Coffs Harbour to Sydney with a connecting flight to Brisbane or Melbourne, will no longer need to transfer between terminals to connect to their flights."

Benefits include reduced check-in times, smoother flight connections and improved access to Qantas' premium lounge and retail offerings.

Mr Gissing said passengers would also have access to Sydney airport's exceptional Terminal 3 facilities including innovative check-in technology, a refreshed retail and dining precinct as well as premium lounge access.

"Better aircraft gate access and consistent scheduling at Terminal 3 will enhance our customers' experience, helping the over 3000 Coffs Harbour customers we fly each week get to their destination on time," he said.

Construction for QantasLink's gate within Terminal 3 is underway, with the project scheduled for completion in the second half of 2013.
