Important information

Fly Flexible:
  • If you want to change your dates, simply do so before your scheduled date of departure. 
  • When changing your flight, you'll need to select a new travel date within 12 months of your original booking date and, while we'll waive any change fees, you'll need to cover any applicable fare increase for your new flights. For all changes your applicable Fare Rules and the Qantas Conditions of Carriage apply.
  • Our flights are scheduled 12 months in advance, so when booking or changing your flight, your preferred date might not be available.
  • If you combine Classic Flight Rewards with non-Classic Flight Reward fares ("Commercial Fares"), the Fly Flexible terms and conditions apply.
  • If we’ve cancelled your Qantas flight, we'll rebook you on the next available flight to your booked destination (if possible), at no additional cost to you. Alternatively, you can choose a Flight Credit or a refund. You won’t be charged any change or cancellation fees. For more information visit booking changes and other options.
