Lower pricing via the Qantas Distribution Platform

Lower pricing via the Qantas Distribution Platform

From 29 November 2022, your travel agency will be able to access Australian domestic fares at a lower price via the Qantas Distribution Platform, compared to what will be available in indirect booking systems that do not access Qantas Distribution Platform content.

Lower pricing through the Qantas Distribution Platform means that Qantas will be able to share the benefits and efficiencies of NDC with our valued customers, offering better value and confidence when booking Qantas fares. Lower pricing will encourage more agents to access Qantas Distribution Platform content and will complement the many retailing capabilities, features, and benefits already enabled.

These lower fares will be made available to travel agents accessing Qantas Distribution Platform content either directly or through an Approved Technology Partner.

Your travel agency may still need to undertake steps to finalise access to Qantas Distribution Platform content. Therefore, Qantas has allowed extra time before making this change.

During this time, your Travel Agency Manager is encouraged to speak with your nominated Technology Partner about their connection to the Qantas Distribution Platform and to understand their plans in delivering this benefit for your agency. You can find some Frequently Asked Questions to help you prepare for and understand this additional benefit.

Access to our Qantas Distribution Platform requires your travel agency to be registered globally in the Qantas Channel, and to have nominated your preferred Approved Technology Partner/s via Qantas Agency Connect.

In the meantime, Qantas will continue to work closely with you and our Technology Partners to support your access to Qantas Distribution Platform content. Qantas will provide you with further updates in the lead up to 29 November 2022.

If your travel agency would like to access Qantas Distribution Platform content, please follow the steps below.
