Transport Minister Alex Hawke has asked for public comment on the government’s plans to improve the way tickets are issued for domestic flights.
The Government will be looking at ways to make sure ticketing and other processes for passengers are more efficient, he said on Monday.
“There’s a lot of issues that come with ticketing for domestic flight,” Mr Hawke said.
The Government has previously suggested reducing the number of tickets issued for flights to overseas destinations.
Currently, travellers are issued a ticket that is valid for two days.
Mr Hawkes proposal would see travellers issued a new ticket that expires at midnight the following day.
Mr Hawke would not reveal how much the change would cost the Government.
Under current rules, travellers can get a refund on their tickets within 48 hours of the date of booking, or in the event they get stuck on a flight, the same day.
