With the biggest suite of changes to the Frequent Flyer program since its inception 32 years ago recently being announced, let’s see how you and your business can take advantage of these new improvements.
From more Classic Flight Reward seats, to reduced fees1, and an expanded range of partner airlines to use your Qantas Points on, there's now more opportunities for you to save when flying for business (or leisure) thanks to these exciting program updates.
Securing a Classic Flight Reward Seat for your next important business trip (or dream holiday) is now easier with access to 5 million Qantas reward seats annually2. Enjoy a 30% increase in International premium cabins during popular peak travel periods including to the most popular destinations including London, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Now, when you book a reward seat through your Qantas Frequent Flyer account, finding these seats will also be quicker and easier, with real time access to a year's worth of Qantas reward seats in seconds, showcasing rewards seats to over 1,200 destinations, including the next available reward flight.

A reduction of fees3 on International Qantas and Jetstar Classic Flight Reward seats, in all cabins from First to Economy means even more savings for your business when you transfer your points and redeem them for flights for you and/or your employees. Fees will be reduced by up to 50% on International Classic Flight Reward seats, saving on average $200 per return journey.
If you secure a return Classic Flight Reward seat from Sydney or Melbourne to London next time you fly will see fees reduced from $1,080 to $700 in Business Class. That’s more money that you can save or invest back into your business.
Securing an Economy Classic Flight Reward Seat is now even better value, with the points needed decreasing by up to 10% on travel to the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe3. So your business' points balance can be used to take you further.
A return economy trip from Sydney or Melbourne to Singapore has been reduced from 56,000 points to just 50,400 points.
