Qantas Airport Lounges

With refreshments, showers, Wi-Fi and play zones for kids, Qantas Lounges can provide you with a place to relax and unwind before your next flight.

Picture this: You show up at the airport. You’re stressed, you’re carrying luggage, you might have work to do, you might even have a few kids trailing at your heels. The last thing you want is to have to go traipsing around the airport looking for somewhere to wait for your flight. This is where Qantas Lounges could help.

Depending on whether you are at a Qantas Lounge or Qantas Club, you will enjoy a different range of benefits and features, all of which are sure to make your wait at the airport much more enjoyable. Standard benefits you can expect include refreshments, bar service, showers, internet access, and even a family zone. And there’s ways you can enjoy these services, as well.

What’s the difference between the Qantas Club and Qantas Lounge?

The Qantas Club is a membership program that gives you access to Qantas Lounges in Australia and throughout the world. There are Qantas Clubs located in most capital and regional airports throughout Australia, although more ‘premium’ Qantas member areas, referred to as lounges, have fewer locations. The lounges also have a higher level of features compared to Qantas Clubs

Who is eligible to get into a Qantas Airport Lounge or Club?

There are a few ways to gain entry:

  • Become a Qantas Club member. You can choose to pay for a one, two or four year membership to the Qantas club using your Qantas points, or by paying a fee. As a Qantas Club member you will have access to Qantas-operated international business lounges, as well as the Emirates lounge in Dubai, provided your next flight is with Qantas or Emirates.
  • Buy a business or first class ticket. If you hold a business or first class ticket with Emirates or Qantas you will have access to the Qantas Club as well as Emirates lounges.
  • Get a rewards credit card. Some rewards credit cards that let you earn Qantas points also give you other benefits, including offering you complimentary lounge access. Check to see if this is offered by your card provider, and if not, compare your options using the table below.

Features of Qantas airport lounges

The Qantas Club

The Qantas Club is available at most regional and metro airports in Australia. Each club is different, but you can generally expect complimentary refreshments, showers, wireless internet and computers, newspapers and magazines and ‘family zones’ if you’re travelling with kids.

Domestic Business Lounges

You can only gain access to this lounge if you hold a first or business class ticket on an eligible or domestic business flight. The key difference with this lounge is that there are no direct benefits for families, and it is more tailored to individuals, couples or groups flying, with a maximum of two additional non-travelling guests being allowed. Features include a complimentary bar and lounge dining service, showers, wireless internet, computer access and newspapers and magazines.

International Business and First Lounges

As the most exclusive lounges operated by Qantas, International Business and First Lounges come with markedly stricter eligibility of access. You will usually need to be holding a first class ticket with Qantas or a partner, or be a platinum member of Qantas, Emirates, or an Emerald member of oneworld. In exchange, you’ll receive the complimentary food, drinks, internet, computers and showers that come with the other lounges, as well as access to a private spa, meeting rooms, private suites, a library, and restaurant-quality dining.
