Enjoy discounts from our partners

We've made a few friends in our travels with partners in shopping, food, wine, insurance, wellbeing, leisure, and entertainment.

Our employees can enjoy discounts with these partners and the option for salary packaging on things like vehicles and electronic devices.

Benefits for parents

With our paid parental leave entitlements, employees can access 18 weeks of primary carer's leave and 10 weeks of secondary carer's leave, making it among the most generous parental leave policies in Australia.

Also, employees on paid and unpaid parental leave will continue to receive superannuation for up to 52 weeks.

Note: secondary carers leave applies from 1 July 2024.

We appreciate our people

Good people and good work should be rewarded. The ThankQ program allows us to thank teams and colleagues for their excellent work.

ThankQ points can be redeemed for Qantas Staff Travel credits, Qantas Points, Qantas Club Lounge Passes, and gift cards. We also host the eXcel Awards, an annual event celebrating stand-out employee achievements.

Conditions apply.

Health and wellbeing

Supporting our people

Helping you through the ups and downs of life is important to us. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a professional counselling and coaching service that offers confidential, free, short-term support to you and your family. 

We also recognise that health equals happiness, so we partnered with Fitness Passport to give you exclusive access to a significantly discounted fitness membership to hundreds of gyms and pools across Australia.

Types of leave

Annual leave, carer's leave and more

When life throws a curveball, we offer personal and carer's leave, leave without pay, leave for specific outside commitments (eg Defence Force or SES leave), and in some roles, the option to buy additional annual leave, to give you as much flexibility as you need to take time away from work.
