Aware that many customers are choosing to book a sale fare rather than spend their hard-earned frequent flyer points on flight redemptions, Qantas has reduced the number of points needed to book an international fare, as well as cutting the associated fees.
Destinations including the Americas, Asia, Europe and Africa will now require up to 10 per cent less points for a rewards flight and fees are reduced by up to 40 per cent. This will help to align the cost of reward flights keep pace with the drop in sale fares.
A Sydney to London return fare will now cost 120,000 plus $708 in fees. Of course, you’ll still need to get in early to secure flights on popular routes. Flights on many of Qantas partner airlines will also see a reduction in points and fees, but Business Class flights on the airline remain the same.
