Status Hold

Going on parental leave? Your membership can too. 

At Qantas, we understand the importance of families, especially when there's a new addition on the way! So while your family may be changing, it doesn't mean that your membership status has to as well.

Status Hold is our family-friendly benefit that allows eligible Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members to put their status on hold for up to 18 months. And the great thing is, you can still continue to earn Qantas Points and Status Credits as you usually would during this time. Plus, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members can still enjoy lounge access too.

Refer to the Status Hold terms and conditions and frequently asked questions for additional information.

Important information

You must be a Qantas Frequent Flyer to earn and redeem Qantas Points. A joining fee may apply. Membership and points are subject to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program Terms and Conditions.
