Travel time from City to Airport?

Hi guys!

Any knows what is the travel time from City to Airport?

I am taking Greyhound bus from Katherine back to Darwin to catch a flight to Adelaide. The bus reaches Darwin at 1735 and my flight is 1850. Since I need to check in 30mins earlier, I want to be at the airport latest by 1815.

Do you know if I can arrange for the shuttle to pick me up from Greyhound's transit center when I arrive at the airport on the first day?

It takes about 15 minutes actual travel time to the Airport from Darwin.

But you would have to ensure several things:

that the Greyhound Bus will arrive on time and your luggage will be unloaded immediately.

that there is a Shuttle due in the time frame you want.

that the Shuttle will go straight to the Airport and not to other pickup places first, and therefore get you to the airport at your time

I think if it was me, I would consider a taxi, to avoid stress in a narrow time frame and the consequences if you miss the flight.

Also, check-in time does depend on whom you fly with. When we flew with Qantas in May from Adelaide, we were required to check in 1 hour before the flight, because of additional security measures, we were told.

I have also heard that Jetstar will not allow any one to board who is even 1 minute late for check-in, but that may just be on flights out of Sydney.
