Qantas will offer triple frequent flyer points on all new domestic flights booked until 24 June 2020, for travel between 27 June and 31 October 2020.
The “triple point sale” is expected to launch at 9am today, and runs in conjunction with a Jetstar sale that sees domestic flights start from just $19 one-way.
Triple points will apply to the base points on all Qantas domestic airfares. For example, you would normally earn 800 Qantas points for a one-way red-eDeal ticket from Brisbane to Cairns. With this offer, that would increase to 2,400 Qantas points plus any status bonuses. A Platinum frequent flyer would earn 3,000 Qantas points.
To take part in this promotion, you will need to register on the Qantas website.
Qantas is also currently offering to waive the change fee one time on bookings made between 21 May and 30 June, for travel until 31 October 2020 as part of its Fly Flexible offer. (A fare difference may apply.)
Qantas has regularly run double points offers in the past, but it’s unusual to see triple points on Qantas flights!
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said that there’s a huge pent-up demand for travel, which has seen passenger numbers on Qantas and Jetstar’s domestic networks double from 32,000 to 64,000 in the past week. These numbers will continue to increase as travel restrictions are eased.
“We know that these low fares will encourage even more people to get on a flight to take a short holiday or visit family and friends. We’ve already seen our flights from Sydney to Cairns fill up on the days after the proposed Queensland border opening date of 10 July 2020, so we’re adding more,” Mr Joyce said.
Qantas is also currently offering double status credits on flights between Sydney and Ballina. However, it may not be possible to combine the triple points offer with double status credits.
As Australia begins to reopen, hopefully we’ll see plenty more of these kinds of offers in the months to come!
