Earn double Qantas Points on Qantas flights this year

Sally McMullen 30 March 2016


Planning a holiday this year? Discover how you could earn double Qantas Points on flights.

In case you need convincing on when to take your next holiday, Qantas’ double bonus points offer could do the trick. The airline has announced that Frequent Flyers who book flights before 11.59pm on 5 April 2016 for travel up to 17 March 2017 will receive double Qantas Points on their flight.

This offer applies to all Qantas-operated flights, regardless of the travel class. American Airlines flights from Sydney and Auckland to Los Angeles can also rack up double points when booked as a Qantas codeshare.

How can I earn double points?

In-between now and 5 April 2016, when you book your flight for travel up to 17 March 2017, you'll just need to quote your Qantas Frequent Flyer number at the time of booking. All passengers in your booking must quote yours or their Qantas Frequent Flyer number and register separately via their online Frequent Flyer account to earn the points. Your bonus points should appear in your account within six weeks of your flight.

The bonus Qantas Points are based on the base rate or the minimum points guarantee which applies. Learn the steps on how to book flights with your Qantas Points here.

How many points could I earn?

This will depend on where you fly from and your cabin class, but you can expect to receive double the points regardless. Say if you were travelling from Sydney to LAX in economy, you could earn 18,000 Qantas Points rather than 9,000. If you wanted to book a short trip from Sydney to Melbourne in economy, you could earn 1,200 Qantas Points instead of 600. The further you travel and the higher the cabin class, the more points you can expect to earn.

So if you already had a holiday in mind, booking before April 5 2016 could be a great way to bolster your points balance at the same time.
