Qantas has announced changes to the way passengers can earn points and status credits on its frequent flyer scheme.
To take effect from July 1, passengers will now be rewarded with additional points and status credits when they book flexible fares, but the amount of points earned on lower fares will be reduced. The current miles-based system will also be changed to a zone-based system, where the airline’s network including that of its partners will be divided into 22 flight regions. Each region or zone will provide a set number of points, dependant on what type of fare is booked.
For example, a flight between Sydney and Melbourne will earn 1000 points and 20 status credits on a discount economy airfare, 1,375 points and 25 status credits on a standard economy fare, and 1,750 points and 40 status credits on a flexible economy fare.
Frequent Flyer members should have received an email by now explaining the basics of the changes, and a link to the Qantas website which explains the new structure in more detail.
