1:15 h transit between T1 & T2 in Melbourne enough?

Taking an international flight from Sydney with a transit through Melbourne. Single ticket.

Is that first SYD-MEL leg considered domestic and will I have to go through immigration at Melbourne from T1 to T2?

And is 1 hour and 15 minutes risking it?

Thanks.

MEL T1 and T2 adjoin each other.

1.25 hours is enough provided the arriving flight is on time.

So it’s always going to be a bit risky. The single ticket is likely your protection if things go wrong.

But it’s not going to be super relaxing even if things go right!

If you have to ask the question, the answer is always no :)

But as Austman said, if you are on a single ticket/airline you should get alternatives if things go wrong.

My advice is that you advise the specific flights (not dates - just the airline flight numbers) - many here will have probably done same and thus advise with a very informed manner :)

The standard MCT is 45 minutes in this case, but there’s lots of exceptions so please provide airlines and flight numbers.

Ah alright, will remember to add flight numbers next time. Found a better route for this one.

Thanks for the replies
