Jetstar are set to charge an additional fee for traditional check-in on Australian domestic routes from November 2011. The drive is designed to push all passengers towards self-service check-in via the jetstar website, at airport self-service check-in machines or a SMS boarding passes. Self-service check in fees are expected to initially be set at a token $5 or $10 but will be increased if this does not drive sufficient passengers to self-service options. Once successfully implemented in Australia the fee is expected to be introduced on New Zealand domestic and eventually International services.
