How to turn your flybuys points into flights with Etihad Airways

How to use your flybuys points for Etihad flights.

Last updated:

A partnership between flybuys loyalty program and Etihad Airways ran between October 2015 and July 2018. It's no longer possible to earn Etihad Guest Miles, so what else can you do?

flybuys and Etihad partnership has ended

In December 2017, flybuys made a number of changes to its partnership with Etihad Guest. Subsequently in July 2017 it announced that the partnership had ended. No Etihad Guest points can be earned for any flybuys purchases after 31 July 2018.

What alternatives do I have?

If you want to earn airline points from your flybuys shopping, you can transfer to a Virgin Australia Velocity frequent flyer account. Velocity points can be redeemed for flights on Etihad, amongst other airlines. See our complete Velocity guide for the full list.

You can also use flybuys points to book flights and holidays directly through flybuys Travel.

      Hi Julie,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, no. You can’t transfer your flybuys points to Qantas Frequent Flyer points, only Etihad Guest Miles.

      I’m sorry we can’t be of more assistance.
