Millions of Qantas Points up for grabs

Sydney, 01 October 2002

Six lucky Qantas Frequent Flyers will each have the chance to win one million Qantas points and another 24 can win 250,000 points each by booking fares on the airline's website between 1 October 2002 and 31 March 2003.

Qantas Group General Manager Marketing Curtis Davies said one winner and four runners-up would be drawn from each month's Internet bookings across the full range of fares including red-edeals, global deals, Qantas Frequent Flyer Award bookings and QBiz bookings.

"One million points could allow a Frequent Flyer to take five First Class trips between Australia and Los Angeles or four Business Class trips between Sydney and London or Paris. With 250,000 points, they could take eight Economy Class trips between East Coast Australia and Auckland. Charges and taxes are payable on Award flights," Mr Davies said.
