Qantas teams up with Zip for buy now pay later flights

Qantas customers can ‘fly now, pay later’ with a new payment option helping them make up for lost time and travel more as destinations reopen.

Passengers can now book domestic and international flights on qantas.com using buy now, pay later provider Zip and earn Qantas Points.

Frequent Flyers will also be able to choose to earn Qantas Points through Zip’s loyalty program, Zip Rewards, when making some everyday purchases providing another way for members to maximise the points they earn.

Specifically, frequent flyers can earn:

  • 3,000 points when they sign up and link their Zip account and complete their first transaction.
  • 500 points each time they reach their Zip Rewards goal (see below for further details).
  • 1 point for every $3 spent on eligible flights on qantas.com with Zip.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said this is the first time the airline has partnered with a buy now, pay later provider to offer the payment option for flight bookings.

“After two years of restricted travel Australians are making up for lost time. Domestic travel is back at pre-COVID levels while international travel is building back strongly to destinations like the US, Europe, Bali and Fiji,” Wirth said.

“The option to buy now, pay later through Zip gives our customers more choice in how they pay for their flights.

“With Zip they can spread the cost over time choosing flexible repayments, and also earn Qantas Points on the payment as well as the flight itself.

“While our 14 million frequent flyers all have different spending habits and payment preferences, we know that financial services are one of the most popular ways to earn points. Being able to earn points on buy now, pay later purchases through Zip Rewards when shopping online or in store is something that will appeal to many of our members.

“We know that Australians love Qantas Points, so we’re continuing to develop new partnerships like this one with Zip to give our frequent flyers more ways to earn points. It helps keep members engaged in the program and ultimately drives value for our business.”
