Qantas announces Points Planes to Noumea

Qantas Frequent Flyers seeking a tropical getaway will have access to more reward seats with over 100 flights available as Points Planes between Sydney, Brisbane and Nouméa.

From 9am today until 31 July 2022, Qantas will make most flights between Australia and New Caledonia Points Planes – where every seat in every cabin, including Business seats, can be booked as a Classic Flight Reward – for travel in August, September, October and November. Seats on these flights can also be purchased with cash.

Qantas operates five return flights per week with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft between Australia and New Caledonia – a weekly service from Brisbane and four services a week from Sydney. Qantas also codeshares with Aircalin on an additional seven return flights per week where additional Classic Reward seats will also be available from Sydney and Brisbane.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said flights remain frequent flyers’ favourite way to use their points.

“We continue to see incredibly strong demand across domestic and international travel as frequent flyers use the Qantas Points they saved during the pandemic to book reward seats in record numbers, Ms Wirth said.

“Qantas Frequent Flyers have used points to travel on Points Planes to New Zealand, Rome, London, LA and across Australia, with more to Korea and India in the coming months.”

Here's what Classic Flight Rewards seats cost on eligible routes:

Sydney – Nouméa (one way)

  • Economy: 18,000 points plus $119 taxes, fees and carrier charges
  • Business: 41,500 points plus $119 taxes, fees and carrier charges

Brisbane – Nouméa (one way)

  • Economy: 12,000 points plus $116 taxes, fees and carrier charges
  • Business: 27,600 points plus $116 taxes, fees and carrier charges

It's worth noting that Qantas has applied blackout dates for selected travel dates, including some school holiday periods. Flights departing from Australia 17 August to 21 August, 23 September to 4 October 2002 and 19 October to 24 October 2022 can't be booked with points. Departing from New Caledonia, black out dates include the travel periods of 3 August to 7 August and 2 October to 12 October 2022.
