Fast track through security

We know your time is precious and you'd prefer to be in one of up to 620 oneworld lounges, rather than waiting in line at airport security. That's why, at select airports worldwide, oneworld Emerald Frequent Flyers (Qantas Frequent Flyer Platinum and Platinum One members) can access the 'Fast Track' or 'Priority Lanes' at security check points no matter which cabin you're travelling in.

Due to restrictions or local agreements with Security Fast Track facility operators, not all oneworld carriers are currently able to extend this benefit to all Emerald tier customers.

Lounge access

If you're a Platinum Qantas Frequent Flyer or Gold Frequent Flyer (equivalent to the oneworld Emerald or Sapphire tiers), or you're travelling in a First or Business on any oneworld member airline (excludes oneworld connect partners), you're eligible to use any of more than 600 business class lounges globally. To be eligible, you must be departing on a flight that is both marketed and operated by a oneworld member airline. Refer to the benefits table above for lounge access by tier status. Find out which lounges are available at airports around the world, and the conditions of use at oneworld Lounges
