Important note to transit passengers in Australia
Australian Capital Cities to Mauritius
Passengers travelling from Australian capital cities to Mauritius via Perth will need to ensure that they transfer themselves and their checked baggage from the Perth Domestic terminal to the Perth International terminal via bus or taxi. The bus transfer pick up point is located immediately in front of the domestic terminal in the forcourt area between Qantas and Virgin Australia. The taxi rank is located in front of Virgin Australia. Passengers travelling who have checked baggage interlined to their final destination (e.g. Mauritius) do not need to collect their baggage and can proceed directly to the transfer bus or taxi.
Passengers will then need to check-in for their International flight at the Perth International terminal. Please note as per Air Navigation Law that all liquids, aerosols and gels (LAG's) over the 100 ml limit (including duty free items) will NOT be allowed in cabin baggage and will be confiscated by the authorities at the security check-in point prior to departure.
