Qantas Frequent Flyers can now access reward seats onwards from Taipei with China Airlines

Frequent flyers can now use their Qantas Points to travel to more than 75 destinations around the world with China Airlines, as Qantas expands its partnership with the Taipei-based carrier.

The expansion means Qantas Frequent Flyers can use points to book Classic Flight Reward seats on all China Airlines flights, adding more destinations to the 1,200 they can already fly to using points and providing another option to many other destinations particularly across Asia and Europe.

Frequent Flyers were previously able to use points to travel on China Airlines between Australia and Taipei only.

Members can travel from Sydney to Da Nang in Economy using 37,800 points, from Melbourne to Amsterdam in Business using 159,000 points or Sydney to Taipei in Business using 75,000 points (plus taxes, fees and carrier charges). Bookings will also be able to be made through the Contact Centre shortly.

China Airlines offers full-service (Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins), and operates thousands of flights each week across its extensive international network spanning 23 countries.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said the Qantas Frequent Flyer program was always looking to give members more opportunities to use their points.

“Our network of more than 45 partner airlines means frequent flyers can use their Qantas Points to travel to more than 1,200 destinations around the world, and this expanded partnership means they have more options than ever,” said Ms Wirth.

“We receive great feedback from our members who have travelled to Taipei with China Airlines, and we know that having access to their full and expansive network will be welcome news.

“There are more than 5 million reward seats available for booking over the next year on Qantas, Jetstar and our partner airlines.”

Qantas Frequent Flyers can also use their points on hotel stays in Taipei and other destinations through Qantas Hotels.

Qantas recently extended its commitment to 50 per cent more reward seat availability on international flights for an additional six months, releasing tens of thousands of new reward seats.

China Airlines Classic Flight Reward seats include:

*Values displayed are current as at 14 March 2023 and are subject to change. Taxes, fees and carrier charges are payable to Qantas (excluding any amounts payable to third parties at the airport) in addition to the points required.
