AIRPORT ARRIVAL OVERVIEW

Our Commitment to You

At your time of booking Exemplar will do all that is possible to confirm that the Trip you have requested is appropriate to your needs and that timings are practicable.

However, there are many factors outside your and our control which may affect your smooth departure from the Airport.  For example: flight delay, aircraft getting to gate late, carousel breakdown, baggage handling delays, lost baggage, etc, etc

If such occurrences affect you we will do our best to juggle arrangements to minimise your delays and inconvenience.

To be fair to the majority of passengers on your assigned Trip we commit to have your vehicle depart no later than the scheduled departure time that we have told you.

However if,

                *  you are delayed through no fault of your own,

                *  the other passengers on your trip are understanding and approving, and

                *  passengers on the vehicle's subsequent trip(s) will not be Sadversely affected,.

Then our staff have discretion to delay a departure.

If our delaying the vehicle is not possible, then you will be assigned to the next available vehicle at no extra charge.  Please note, however, that the 'next' vehicle may not have seating-availability. (Our office can advise immediately what the seating availability is on subsequent trips.) 

Your Mobile Phone

We strongly encourage you to provide us with your mobile phone number at time of booking. If you have done so please turn it on when you arrive in Cairns.   We will update you as necessary.

Airport Concierge

Parking is very limited at Cairns Airport and authorities have imposed strict time constraints in the Arrivals parking bays.

To this end, Exemplar (and only Exemplar) has Airport Concierges on duty 8am to 6pm daily to facilitate the smooth flow of our passengers.

Outside these times your driver will meet you.

Punctuality of Services

To further facilitate passenger-flows our vehicles run to a strict timetable. (Read more.)  It is therefore essential that you proceed directly to your meeting point. If you miss your scheduled trip you will be assigned to the next available vehicle.

Getting From Gate to Carousel

Domestic

On arrival follow the 'Baggage' signs:

  • pass through the shopping concourse,
  • exit through large glass doors at the far left-hand corner into the baggage collection area, then
  • four carousels will be straight ahead.

Your Exemplar representative will be close to your assigned carousel.

International

After passing through Immigration and Quarantine you will exit through the exit door and immediately into an Arrivals hall.

That is where you will meet your Exemplar representative.

Getting From Carousel to Vehicle

Domestic

  • Coach Transfer - you will exit the large glass doors at the far (northern) end of the baggage area and proceed to your vehicle along a covered walkway to your left. (It will be 20 metres away at or near Bay 16.)

  • Limousine Transfer - your vehicle will be just across the road, outside the doors adjacent to the Skybury Coffee shop in the Carousel area

International

  • Coach Transfer - you will exit the large glass doors immediately opposite the Immigration/Quarantine exit, turn left then have a very short walk.

  • Limousine Transfer - your vehicle will be just across the road, outside the doors adjacent to the Skybury Coffee shop in the Carousel area.

What to Look Out For

Our friendly staff will be uniformed in navy skirt or trousers, white blouse or shirt and navy tie or scarf.  They will be holding a board with your name on it.

What if I Can't Find an Exemplar Representative

In the unlikely event that our Concierge or driver is not there, they will probably not be far away. Simply wait at the nominated meeting point. 

If after, say 15 minutes and you still have not made contact, then ring the office on 07 4213 3333. Our base has radio and telephone contact with all vehicles and our staff will probably already know the nature of the delay.

What Happens if My Flight is Delayed?

Our office continuously monitors the flight trackers for actual arrival times and we do our best to juggle vehicles to cater for your Private transfer or, if you are a Seat-in-Coach passenger, to assign you to the next available vehicle.
