Choose Qantas to enjoy the lounge

As a Qantas Club member you need to book a QF flight number to access Qantas and Partner lounges when travelling in Economy on our partner airlines including Emirates.

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.

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