Telco company Optus has launched a new alliance with Qantas, aimed at allowing its personal, small and medium business customers opportunities to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer (QFF) points.

The arrangement will see Optus personal customers earn two QFF points for every dollar spent on most Optus personal services per month or per transaction, which will be redeemable on Qantas flights, merchandise and vouchers in the airline’s Frequent Flyer Store. In addition, Optus business customers or their nominees can also earn two QFF points for every dollar spent on eligible Optus business services until December 31, after which they will earn one point per dollar spent.

To mark the relationship, Qantas has fitted 737-800 VH-VZD with special Optus decals, with the aircraft launched by model Jennifer Hawkins at Sydney Airport on Thursday morning.
