Qantas is offering 50% off the points required when you book an economy Qantas Classic Flight Reward for travel to selected international destinations – the biggest sale we’ve seen.The international destinations included in the promotion include Hong Kong, Japan (Tokyo Haneda, Tokyo Narita and Osaka Kansai), China (Shanghai and Beijing), USA (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, New York and Honolulu), South Africa (Johannesburg), Singapore, Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City) and Thailand (Bangkok and Phuket). There is also a small window of availability in 2018 to fly Melbourne to London at a 50% discount.
It’s easy to book. Simply log in to Your Account and make an eligible economy Qantas Classic Flight Reward booking between 1 December and 5 December 2017. The travel periods vary by destination, and are as follows:
- 14 January and 31 October 2018 on Qantas between Australia and: Hong Kong, Japan (Tokyo Haneda, Tokyo Narita or Osaka Kansai), China (Shanghai or Beijing), USA (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, New York or Honolulu) or South Africa (Johannesburg)
- 14 January and 30 September 2018 on Jetstar between Australia and: Japan (Tokyo Narita or Osaka Kansai), USA (Honolulu), Singapore, Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City), Thailand (Bangkok or Phuket)
- 18 January to 28 February 2018 on Qantas between Australia and London (Heathrow)
- 14 April to 31 October 2018 on Qantas between Melbourne and Singapore.
Unfortunately, business and first class redemptions are excluded from the promotion, and there’s no discount on taxes, fees and carrier charges. But with a return trip between Brisbane and Los Angeles priced at just 45,000 points with Qantas, some routes represent significant value, particularly if you can nab a seat during peak travel periods like school holidays.
If you’re comfortable flying Jetstar, you’ll find that redemptions are even lower, as a 20% discount is applied on Jetstar award flights via the Qantas Website.
