Qantas and Emirates

Together connecting the globe like never before

The world's leading airline partnership just got better.

From March 2018, our customers will have more choice on ways to fly between Australia, New Zealand and UK/Europe with Qantas and Emirates. This includes a choice of three hub options to UK/Europe - Dubai, Perth and Singapore.*

Our combined network offers over 2,000 routes for Qantas Frequent Flyers to earn and redeem Qantas Points.

Our network

A seamless travel experience

Together, Qantas and Emirates offer one of the most comprehensive international networks in the world. Qantas will apply to extend our partnership with Emirates for a further five years, reinforcing our commitment to giving you greater ways to earn and use Qantas Points when travelling on our combined network.

Our new network offering will include greater year round frequency and more services between Australia and New Zealand, and more ways to get to Europe via the following flight options:

  • Between Australia and London via Singapore: we're re-introducing our popular route flying to and from London via Singapore, flight services will commence from 25 March 2018.
  • Direct flights between Australia and London: fly on our non-stop service between Australia and London onboard our new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
  • Emirates via Dubai to and from Europe: fly via Dubai on Emirates' A380 and B777 services from Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney; with connections to over 60 cities in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.

From March 2018, Emirates will stop flying from Melbourne and Brisbane to Auckland. At the same time, to provide greater choice across the Tasman, Qantas will increase the frequency of its services between the two countries, adding seven new return flights per week between Melbourne and Auckland and an extra two return services per week between Brisbane and Auckland. Some of these services will be up-gauged from a 737 to a wide-body A330.
