Once you reach your Qantas Annual Earn Target of 20,000 Aquire Points and 2 travellers, your business could earn between 20,000 and 1,000,000 Aquire Points per year flying with Qantas. The Aquire Points earned from flying can then be combined with Aquire Points earned from all other Aquire partners to use on a range of rewards.

How to Qualify to Earn Aquire Points from Flying

All your business needs to do within each membership year to reach the Qantas Annual Earn Target is:

  • Simply accrue a minimum of 20,000 Aquire Points; and
  • Ensure 2 or more travellers have flown under your ABN.

Aquire Points from flying will initially appear separately as 'pending' on your activity statement until you reach the Qantas Annual Earn Target. So you can easily see how many Aquire Points your business needs to earn to reach the target.

The number of Aquire Points earned for each flight varies depending on the fare type, cabin and trip length. The number of trips required to reach the Qantas Annual Earn Target can range from as little as 2 return trips, up to 42 return trips.

Here are a few examples of how many trips might be needed to reach the Qantas Annual Earn Target:

  • 1 return trip between Sydney and London in Flexible Business, and 1 return trip between Sydney and Melbourne in Discount Economy earns 22,180 Aquire Points.
  • 2 return trips between Melbourne and Los Angeles in Business earns 21,600 Aquire Points.
  • 10 return trips between Sydney and Auckland in Business earns 20,000 Aquire Points.
  • 12 return trips between Brisbane and Perth in Flexible Economy earns 21,120 Aquire Points.
  • 21 return trips between Sydney and Melbourne in Flexible Economy earns 20,160 Aquire Points.
  • 42 return trips between Melbourne and Sydney in Discount Economy earns 20,160 Aquire Points.
