Eligibility and Access

Access to more lounges across the world

Qantas Club members have access to the largest Australian and international lounge network of any Australian airline. What's more you'll have access to complimentary food, beverage and business facilities as well as a number of benefits that extend beyond the lounge.

Each time you travel on a Qantas or Jetstar flight number you will have access to:

  • All Qantas owned and operated lounges^ within Australia and overseas
  • Emirates Business Lounge in Dubai
  • American Airlines® Admirals Club lounges in London and other locations - visit www.aa.com for lounge locations
  • Associated lounges in most international ports that Qantas flies to but where there is no Qantas or partner airline lounge. Our associated lounges are operated by, or on behalf of, other airlines – view the associated lounge network

When you arrive at a lounge, show your Qantas Club card along with your ticket or boarding pass. Don't forget your next onward flight must be with Qantas or Jetstar to access the lounge.

Until 1 October 2014, you can also access the Emirates Business Lounge in Dubai or the American Airlines® Admirals Club lounge in London if you are travelling on an Emirates flight number.

See the 'Benefits & Privileges' page for lounge access for Qantas Frequent Flyers.

Changes to Qantas Club access when flying Emirates

To enjoy access to domestic and international lounges for travel from 1 October 2014, you need to have a QF or JQ flight number on your ticket for your onward flight. As with all our other airline partners, this change means that as a Qantas Club member you need to book a QF flight number to access Qantas and Partner lounges when travelling in Economy on Emirates.

Choose Qantas to enjoy the lounge

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.

Invite a Guest

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

  • Domestic Australia and New Zealand - you may bring one guest to join you in a Qantas Club lounge.
  • Internationally - invite one guest each time you visit. Both you and your guest need to be travelling together further that day on the same flight.

If you are travelling with your family, you may also be able to bring your children into the lounge subject to the child access guide. If you are travelling with more than two children, the Qantas lounge manager will try to accommodate them, subject to reviewing the space available in the lounge. If your children are older than 18 they are considered as a guest.
