You can now earn Qantas Points on Uber trips to the airport

Sally McMullen 30 October 2017 NEWS


Booking an Uber could get you closer to your next free flight.

Qantas has announced a new partnership with Uber today that will allow Frequent Flyers to collect up to 3 Qantas Points per $1 on trips to and from the airport.

From 3 November 2017 (this Friday), an Uber icon will appear in the booking section of the Qantas app which you can click to book your next trip. Make sure to request your Uber ride to the airport from the Qantas app, as bookings made through the Uber app won’t collect points.

The number of points you’ll collect will depend on your tier in the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. You can compare the different earn rates below:

Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members3 Qantas Points per $1 spent

You can earn points when travelling between these eligible airports:

  • Adelaide
  • Avalon
  • Brisbane
  • Byron Bay
  • Cairns
  • Canberra
  • Gold Coast
  • Hobart
  • Maroochydore

This partnership is another way that Qantas Frequent Flyers can manage their entire travel experience, from booking flights and ubers to checking in, through the Qantas app.

Uber is an increasingly popular way for flyers to travel to and from the airport, so it was only natural for Qantas to form this union with the ridesharing service.

“We’re pleased to welcome Uber as one of our Frequent Flyer partners. We know it’s a service our customers already like using and now they have the ability to earn Qantas Points on their rides to and from the airport,” said Qantas chief customer officer Olivia Wirth.

This partnership is now just one of two ways frequent flyers can earn Qantas Points on transport. You can also download the ingogo app and link it to your Qantas account to earn points on your next taxi trip.
