What are Status Credits?

Status Credits are different to Qantas Points, and you could earn both at the same time on eligible flights - the more you fly, the more you earn. Status Credits count towards reaching and keeping your Qantas Frequent Flyer status and the privileges you receive on Qantas, Jetstar, and oneworld® member airline flights. Status Credits are all about making flying a more rewarding experience.++ Status Credits reset at the start of each new Membership Year.

Status Hold

We understand the importance of families, especially when there's a new addition on the way. While your family may be changing, and you might not be flying as much, it doesn't mean your membership status has to change as well.

More support for Qantas Frequent Flyers 

We understand Frequent Flyers have had fewer opportunities to earn Status Credits with reduced flying and travel restrictions. That's why we're helping eligible members maintain their tier by awarding a one-off boost of 50% of the Status Credits needed annually and more.
