Move quickly: Qantas award seats to Lord Howe Island


Have you always wanted to use your Qantas Points for flights to Lord Howe Island?

Me too! A Qantas Classic Reward redemption to this dream destination has been on my personal travel bucket list for quite some time.

At just 8,000 Qantas Points for a one-way economy flight (plus taxes/fees), this is a bargain redemption that many savvy travellers strive for. The fact is, though, award seats to this idyllic island have historically been very difficult to find.

Lord Howe Island is a must-visit destination for many travellers

However, this ‘unicorn' redemption is now firmly within reach! As part of the Qantas Points Plane initiative, Qantas is making every economy seat on eligible direct flights with a QF flight number from Sydney to Lord Howe Island available as a Classic Flight Reward.

The catch? You'll need to book by 23 December 2019, and you must be willing to travel during a specific 6 week period in 2020.

Eligible booking and travel period

Classic Flight Rewards from Sydney to Lord Howe Island can be booked between 16 December and 23 December 2019. The eligible travel dates are between 15 July and 31 August 2020.

You'll need to move fast, though, as we suspect these flights will be snapped up very quickly! We've searched a range of dates and found wide availability for four passengers or more.

Redemption costs

A one-way direct journey from Sydney to Lord Howe Island will cost you just 8,000 Qantas Points (plus $86 in taxes/fees). With flights on this route typically costing around $480, you're getting almost 5 cents value per point, which is tremendous value!

With award seats usually very hard to come by on this route, the new Qantas Points Plane promotion will be tempting for many travellers, particularly families, who can book multiple seats.
