Qantas WestJet partnership means more frequent flyer points in Canada
Qantas adds WestJet to its list of over 50 frequent flyer airline partners.
Qantas’ frequent flyers now have even more options when it comes to earning points. Today Qantas and WestJet announced that they’ll be united under a reciprocal frequent flyer partnership which allows members of the airlines’ frequent flyer programs to earn their choice of WestJet dollars or Qantas Points when flying with either airline.
Effective from 25 May 2016, Qantas Frequent Flyers will also be able to redeem Qantas Points on Qantas codeshare flights operated by WestJet. This means that Qantas flyers will have access to a number of WestJet flights in the US and Canada when they’re connecting from a Qantas international flight.
If you’re looking to earn points with either airline, make sure to quote your Qantas Frequent Flyer or WestJet frequent flyer number at the time of booking to make sure the points are attributed to your account.
WestJet frequent flyers aren't yet able to redeem their rewards for Qantas flights. This is due to change in 2017.
This agreement builds on the existing code-share relationship between the two airlines that was announced in 2014, in which Qantas put its codeshare on about 20 WestJet routes. Qantas Frequent Flyer currently has more than 50 airline partners and affiliates, giving its members access to over 1,200 destinations.
