Exciting news for Qantas Frequent Flyers was announced yesterday with members offered 50 per cent more of Qantas best-value points seats on international and domestic flights as millions of Classic Flight Reward seats are made available online until the end of 2022. 

The announcement is part of Qantas’ celebration on the opening of international and national borders. 

The awards are being offered through the Classic Rewards Program, widely recognised to offer the most value to members. Classic Flight Reward seats have been made available online until the end of 2022. 

According to the release by Qantas, frequent flyers can now book their flights with confidence, and will not be charging consumers fees to change or cancel an international Classic Flight Reward seat booking for travel until 31 December 2022 (on bookings made by 28 February 2022).

Qantas said that thousands of frequent flyers have snapped up seats between Sydney and London and Los Angeles after flights were brought forward to 14 November 2021, with members already redeeming almost 2 billion points on international flights in the first two weeks of going on sale, showing just how excited they are to get back into the air.

Qantas says they are getting set to launch more Points Planes – where every seat in every cabin on a flight is available to book as a reward seat – as more states and territories ease domestic and international travel restrictions. 

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said, “Throughout the pandemic, many Qantas Frequent Flyers have been stockpiling points they have earned on the ground so they can use them to travel once travel restrictions are lifted.

“With members keen to travel internationally and domestically we have released more reward seats to make it easier for our frequent flyers to use their points to go on holidays and be reunited with family and friends in 2022.

“There’s no doubt we will appreciate travel in 2022 like never before and Qantas is excited to help Australians rediscover the joy of flying and making travel memories with their loved ones,” Ms Wirth said.

“We’ll also be announcing more domestic and international Points Planes. It’s our way of thanking our frequent flyers for their ongoing loyalty.”
