Eligibility and Access

Access to more lounges across the world

Qantas Club members have access to the largest Australian and international lounge network of any Australian airline. What's more you'll have access to complimentary food, beverage and business facilities as well as a number of benefits that extend beyond the lounge.

Each time you travel on a Qantas or Jetstar flight number you will have access to:

  • All Qantas Club lounges when travelling within Australia
  • All Qantas International Business Lounges when travelling overseas
  • Emirates Business Lounge in Dubai
  • American Airlines® Admirals Club lounges in London and other locations - visit www.aa.com for lounge locations
  • Associated lounges in most international ports that Qantas flies to but where there is no Qantas or partner airline lounge. Our associated lounges are operated by, or on behalf of, other airlines
  • View Qantas and associated lounge network locations and access

When you arrive at a lounge, show your Qantas Club card along with your ticket or boarding pass. Qantas Club members may access a Qantas Club or Qantas operated International Business lounge when their next onward flight that day has a Qantas or Jetstar flight number on their ticket.

See the 'Tier Benefits' page for tiered Qantas Frequent Flyer lounge access.

Our lounge is a place where you can sit back and relax before your flight. To ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone, please follow our smart casual dress guidelines when entering our Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney Qantas Clubs or Business Lounges. Our team will decline entry if some items of clothing are too casual or inappropriate. This includes bare feet, thongs, beachwear and clothing with offensive images or slogans. Eligible visitors wearing uniforms are still permitted access, and this includes hi-vis work wear. See the terms and conditions of lounge access for more information.

Changes to Qantas Club access when flying Emirates

To enjoy access to domestic and international lounges, you need to have a Qantas or Jetstar flight number on your ticket for your onward flight. As with all our other airline partners, this change means that as a Qantas Club member you need to book a QF flight number to access Qantas and Partner lounges when travelling in Economy on Emirates.

Choose Qantas to enjoy the lounge

Qantas (QF) flight numbers are available on all Emirates flights to and from Australia and New Zealand, the majority of destinations between Dubai, Europe and the Middle East, as well as key destinations in Africa. So, to make the most of your membership and enjoy lounge access before you fly, simply book the QF flight number.

Qantas Club members will continue to be able to access the Qantas Club lounges when their next onward flight on that day is on a Qantas or Jetstar flight number.

Invite a Guest

You are welcome to invite family, friends or a colleague to join you in the lounge.

  • Domestic Australia and New Zealand - you may bring one guest to join you in a Qantas Club lounge.
  • Internationally - invite one guest each time you visit. Both you and your guest need to be travelling together further that day on the same flight.

If you are travelling with your family, you may also be able to bring your children into the lounge subject to the child access guide. If you are travelling with more than two children, the Qantas lounge manager will try to accommodate them, subject to reviewing the space available in the lounge. If your children are older than 18 they are considered as a guest.
