Earning Points with Qantas and Jetstar

One of the best ways to maximise your Qantas Points

When you fly with Qantas you benefit from our global network, our all-inclusive in-flight service, and access to more destinations around Australia than with any other airline.

You can earn Qantas Points on all eligible flights* including our lowest fares, and you can maximise your points by choosing more flexible Economy fares or booking Premium Economy, Business or First. To see how many Qantas Points and Status Credits you could earn, use our earning points and Status Credits calculator.

When flying beyond the Qantas network, we offer the option of a Qantas (QF) flight number on codeshare services operated by other airlines. When travelling on the Qantas (QF) flight number, you'll earn points and Status Credits exactly as you do when flying on a Qantas aircraft.

Earning with Jetstar± is another way to boost your Qantas Points

Just select a Starter Plus, Starter Max or Business Max fare bundle to earn Qantas Points when you fly. When travelling in New Zealand you can also earn Qantas Points on all eligible Jetstar New Zealand domestic fares. Jetstar New Zealand domestic Starter fares also now offer a Minimum Points Guarantee~ per segment (when the journey does not connect to a Jetstar international flight segment).

Always be sure of earning with our Minimum Points Guarantee

As a commitment to rewarding you, our Minimum Points Guarantee^ means you'll earn a minimum number of Qantas Points on every eligible Qantas, Jetstar, and American Airlines® flight. See the tables below to find out what you could earn.
