About the Program
For a quick introduction to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program and to make it easy for you to discover how you can be rewarded as much as possible, take a moment to browse this information.
Growing your points balance
You can earn points when you fly, and earn on the ground as well, with a wide range of over 450 partners. Once you've earned enough points, you have over 3,000 ways to use them at our online store, or you can use them for flights and seat upgrades.
Membership from Bronze to Platinum
You start out as a Bronze Frequent Flyer. The more you fly, the higher your status, from Silver through Gold to Platinum. Higher status brings extra benefits like more points when you fly, priority check-in and Qantas Club membership.
It's Easy to Earn Points
It's easier than you think to grow your points balance. Here are three ways you can earn points:
- Fly with Qantas and our partner airlines.
- Use a Direct Earn credit or charge card.
- Shop with our partners.
A quick tip!
To help you keep tabs on your points balance, we'll send you regular updates. You can also keep track yourself by checking your Frequent Flyer account at Your Account.
Fly with Qantas and our partner airlines
Earn points on eligible flights and fares with Qantas and over 30 partner airlines and their affiliates (but please note that fare type and rate restrictions apply to the earning of points and Status credits on Jetstar, certain oneworld Alliance airlines and partner airline flights).* You can also earn more when you fly in Premium Economy, Business and First.
To make sure you're well rewarded when you fly Qantas, you're guaranteed to earn at least 1,000 points on even the shortest Qantas flight (applies for paid travel on an eligible flight with a Qantas (QF) flight number on the itinerary, except where operated by Jetstar).^
Use a Direct Earn Credit or Charge Card
Use a card that lets you earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points on your everyday spending and watch your points balance grow every month. It's a great way to earn points without flying!
A quick tip!
Use a Direct Earn credit or charge card to shop with any one of our other partners and you can earn points twice: once with your card and once with the other partner.
Shop with our Partners

Earn on your everyday shopping at participating Woolworths Supermarkets and when you dine at over 200 restaurants, bars and cafes. Earn with credit cards, hotel stays, car rentals, car sales and services, travel, mobile and broadband, entertainment, finance, business, real estate, the list goes on.

Ways to Use Your Points

You have over 3,000 ways to use your points at our online store. From cookware to iPods, TVs to toys, sportsgear to vouchers from leading retailers, the list goes on. If you're short of the points you need, you can use Points Plus Pay for selected items (excluding vouchers).+
A quick tip!
Every month, you'll find special offers and discounts in the Store that make it extra rewarding to shop with your points.
Now you can redeem your Qantas Frequent Flyer points for a Woolworths Gift Card by setting up Auto Rewards. Then every three months, you'll automatically receive a gift card in the mail, up to the value of $20. At the end of each three-month period, your points balance determines which gift card we put in the post.

- extra points when you fly (bonus points),
- priority check-in and preferred seating,
- extra baggage allowance on Qantas and Emirates flights*,
- complimentary admission to The Qantas Club, and
