Kiwis – Join the Qantas Frequent Flyer Programme for free until 31 December 2015!
All bookings and travel on New Zealand domestic itineraries will now earn Qantas Points except for domestic sectors which are part of an international itinerary. However, Points earned will continue to be available via Plus and Max bundles and Status Credits earned will remain unchanged.
New Zealanders will now earn Qantas Points on every Jetstar domestic flight across the country, including flights to four new regional destinations on sale from September.
This initiative is expected to grow the membership of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program in New Zealand and offers excellent value for New Zealander customers.
Until now, Qantas Frequent Flyer members travelling on Jetstar New Zealand have earned Qantas Points only when adding Plus and Max bundles to their Starter fare to include extras such as food, baggage and ticket flexibility.
From 25th June, all Jetstar domestic Starter fares within New Zealand will attract a minimum of 400 Qantas Points. Customers purchasing Plus bundles will earn a minimum of 800 Qantas Points, while those buying the Max bundle will receive a minimum of 1,200 Qantas Points.
The Qantas Points offering on all domestic flights will be unique to Jetstar’s customers in New Zealand. Qantas Points will not be extended to other parts of the Jetstar network. This reflects Jetstar’s position as one of only two domestic airlines in the country and the company has a significant share of the New Zealand business market.
This latest move can be expected to raise the competitive bar between the airlines, especially when four new destinations are expected to join the route map from December 2015.
New Zealand residents can join Qantas Frequent Flyer for free at Qantas New Zealand, with the usual NZ$50 join fee waived until 31 December 2015.
