If your flight has been cancelled

Please standby and wait to hear from us before changing your booking. We'll be contacting anyone whose flight has been impacted as soon as possible to let you know your options.

If your flight hasn't been cancelled

We want to provide our customers with as much certainty and flexibility as we can, so we've now extended and simplified our flight credits for customers whose travel plans have been impacted.

If you're due to travel on a Qantas flight before 31 July 2020 and wish to change your plans, you can cancel your booking and retain the full value as a flight credit. Flight credits can be used for bookings and travel until 31 December 2021.

This is how it works:

  • Flight credit must be requested by 30 April 2020.
  • The flight credit is valid for booking and travel by  31 December 2021 so you can rebook when you're ready to travel again.
  • We'll waive the change fee when you're ready to rebook, however the you'll need to cover any fare increase in your new booking.
  • If you have a flight credit issued on or after 31 January 2020, this will automatically be extended too, but it'll take a few weeks to update in the system.
  • For full details on flight credit redemption terms and conditions, see Flight credits.
