Earning Points with Qantas and Jetstar

Fly to maximise your points

When you fly with Qantas you're rewarded in more ways than one. You'll benefit from our comprehensive global network and access to more flights around Australia than with any other carrier. And that's just the beginning. There's also our all-inclusive in-flight service plus, you'll earn Qantas Points with every eligible Qantas flight*.

You can earn with Jetstar Airlines± too. Just select a Starter Plus, Starter Max or Business Max fare bundle to earn Qantas Points when you fly.

From 25 June 2015, you will earn Qantas Points on all Jetstar New Zealand domestic fares for travel within New Zealand only. Jetstar New Zealand domestic Starter fares now come with a Minimum Points Guarantee per segment~ when the journey does not connect to a Jetstar international flight segment.

Flying with Qantas is the perfect way to boost your points balance. You'll earn on all eligible flights*, including our lowest fares. And you can earn even more 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 Calculator or view the Qantas and Jetstar Earning Table.

Earn Status Credits when you fly

We're all about rewarding your loyalty. So it makes sense to choose a Qantas flight - that's a flight with a QF flight number on your ticket - when you can. That way you'll be rewarded with points and Status Credits on every eligible flight*. Status Credits help you move through our membership tiers from Bronze to Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One. The more you fly with us, the greater the privileges. The number of Status Credits you earn with Qantas is based on your fare and where you fly. You can also earn Status Credits on eligible flights and fares with Jetstar Airlines. For more information, use our Earning Points Calculator or view the Qantas and Jetstar Earning Table.
