Qantas Status Fast Track

This limited-time offer makes it easier for you to switch your travel to Qantas by fast-tracking your status to Gold.

Move your frequent flyer status over with Qantas Status Fast Track

For a limited time we're offering eligible members the chance to move their airline frequent flyer status to Qantas by providing a status fast track to help them achieve Qantas Gold.

If you are already one of our loyal Frequent Flyers and hold Qantas status, find out more about the additional support we are providing.

Qantas Status Fast Track also allows eligible members to experience the benefits of Qantas Club membership, providing lounge access and a more generous checked baggage allowance up to 31 July 2021. If the member earns just 100 Status Credits between their activation date and 31 July 2021, they will be fast tracked to Gold status.

More information

How do I successfully complete the Qantas Status Fast Track?
You will need to be eligible for Qantas Status Fast Track and earn 100 eligible Status Credits in your Qantas Frequent Flyer account before 31 July 2021 to have your Qantas Frequent Flyer status upgraded to Gold.

To participate in this Fast Track, eligible members simply need to fill in the online Expression of Interest form by 11.59pm (AEST) 30 April to be considered. Once you’ve completed the Expression of Interest, we’ll be in touch via email within 10 business days to let you know next steps. 

Members who have already been activated on the previous Qantas Status Fast Track (between 26 November 2020 and 31 March 2021) have until 30 June 2021 to earn the required Status Credits and are not eligible to apply for this Status Fast Track. 

What are Status Credits?
Status Credits determine the Qantas Frequent Flyer status and therefore, the benefits and privileges our members receive when flying Qantas operated flights, Jetstar domestic flights within New Zealand (excluding Starter fares) and with selected partner airlines. The Status Credits members earn depends on where they fly, as well as the airline and the fare purchased. The more flexible the fare and the more premium the cabin, the more they earn.

Visit earning Status Credits and the Earning Points and Status Credit calculator to find out more.

From time to time, there may also be opportunities to earn bonus Status Credits from limited time only promotions. Keep an eye out for these offers in the future, as these bonus Status Credits will also count towards the Qantas Status Fast Track.
