Getting to Amp-ed Up 2020

If you plan on flying into Melbourne Tullamarine for the Conference, there are a couple of things that you should be aware of. Terminal 4 which is used for Jetstar and TigerAir flights is a very long walk approximately 700 metres (15 minutes for abled bodied people) to the baggage collection area.

You can click here to find out more about Terminal 4 at Melbourne Airport. Jetstar and TigerAir provided minimal supports at Terminal 4 Melbourne airport as they are a low cost carrier. There is no seating or rest areas from the arrival gate to the baggage collection area and there are no air-bridges for disembarking the aircraft. Travellators have recently been installed however they do not run the entire length of the journey from the aircraft to the baggage area. Jetstar recommend that you travel with a carer.
