A group of five of us are flying Wellington-Melbourne on 20th February. Air NZ has cancelled our direct flight so we are now having to go through Sydney.
We arrive Sydney on NZ845 at 8.20am, and depart for Melbourne on NZ7271 at 10.00am - this flight is operated by Virgin Airlines.
Air NZ gave us this option and it's ticketed under one booking reference, so I'm assuming there will be enough time to transit.
Does anyone have any tips for us? I am presuming taking the train between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 would be the best way to get between the terminals?
Does anyone know if we will have to collect our bags and clear Customs/Immigration before leaving Terminal 1? I am assuming that we will.
If so, will we be able to recheck the bags in at Terminal 1 or will we have to take them with us on the train and recheck them in at the Virgin counter at Terminal 2?
I know there's a couple of similar queries on this forum but they're a bit old.
Any advice gratefully accepted!
