Qantas is in discussions with Sydney Airport on plans to run domestic and international flights from a single terminal, streamlining connections and removing what airline CEO Alan Joyce described as Sydney’s “biggest pain point” for passengers.

“We would like the domestic and international terminals to come together, because that is our biggest pain point… connecting domestically would be a lot easier than it is now,” he added, describing the current process of hopping on and off shuttle buses between T1 and T3 as being “painful”, Joyce remarked during a speech to the American Chamber of Commerce on Monday in Sydney.

Joyce flagged the airline would itself embark on a substantial investment into the new terminal, including lounges.
