Qantas unveils major frequent flyer program expansion

Qantas Frequent Flyers will have access to over 20 million new reward seats as the national carrier unveils one of its biggest-ever expansions in the history of its loyalty program.

The ‘Classic Plus Flight Rewards’ is a new way for members to use their Qantas Points to book flights making travel to destinations like London, Tokyo, New York and Singapore easier to score, even in peak periods.

Qantas Group CEOm Vanessa Hudson said frequent flyers have more ways than ever to earn points and a new flight reward options would open up more value for frequent flyers wanting to use their growing points balances on travel.

“The Qantas Frequent Flyer program is an integral part of Qantas and has been about recognising our customers for their loyalty,” she said.

“We’ve spent a lot of time listening to members about how we can better reward them.

“We’re adding over 20 million new flight rewards with the launch of a new type of reward seat called Classic Plus.

“It’s one of the biggest expansions we’ve made to the Frequent Flyer program in its 35-year history.

Andrew Glance, the CEO of Qantas Loyalty echoed Hudson’s comments.

“The widespread availability of Classic Plus means that frequent flyers have more options to fly where they want, when they want and more often, using their points,” he said.

“The new type of reward seat will usually require more points than the highly sought-after existing Classic seats, and will be available to all destinations on the Qantas international and domestic network, across First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy Cabins.

The Classic Plus reward seats can be booked from today and Qantas international flights departing Australia for travel from 1 July 2024, and will be rolled out across the rest of the airline’s international and domestic network by the end of the year.
