Qantas Frequent Flyers can now redeem points for flights to Tahiti
You can now redeem your Qantas Points for Classic Flight Rewards to Papeete with Air Tahiti Nui.
For the first time, Qantas Frequent Flyers can use their Qantas Points to fly to Papeete, Tahiti. Home to crystal blue waters, luscious green landscapes and rich culture, you can use your points to redeem Classic Flight Rewards with Air Tahiti Nui.
You can use your points to book Air Tahiti Nui flights on the following routes:
- Auckland to Papeete
- Papeete to Los Angeles
- Auckland to Los Angeles
You can redeem points for the flights from Australia as well as the connecting direct routes to and from Papeete.
To give you an idea of how many points you’ll need to get to the tropical paradise, you can compare a few of the different routes and fare class options below.
|AKL - PPT||22,500 points||50,000 points|
|LAX - PPT||28,000 points||60,000 points|
|AKL - LAX||40,000 points||84,000 points|
QF/QF & QF/TN flights
|SYD - PPT||28,000 points||60,000 points|
|MEL - PPT||28,000 points||60,000 points|
|BNE - PPT||28,000 points||60,000 points|
The above points prices exclude taxes, fees and carrier charges, but you're usually better off paying those with cash rather than points anyway.
If you’re travelling business and are a Gold or Platinum frequent flyer or a member of the Qantas Club, you can also relax in style before your next flight in the Air Tahiti business lounge in Papeete. If you're not already a member of the Qantas Club, you can sign up and get 40% off the membership fee until this Friday 25 May 2018.
Previously, you could only earn Qantas Points on QF marketed/Air Tahiti Nui operated flights. So this is a big step up for Qantas Frequent Flyers who'd rather use their points to get to Tahiti, instead of earning them on the way there.
