Coming soon will be airside access from the Hobart Qantas Club to the departure gates - Qantas Club members will be able to check in, pass through security screening and then enter the Qantas Club via a corridor. When boarding commences, Qantas Club members and guests will proceed directly to the departure gate without any need to pass any further security screening. This is expected to be in place by May 2012. Also, Qantas has been expanding its fleet of next-generation Boing 737-800s and already these aircraft have been visiting Hobart regularly.
