Qantas has announced a reduction in the points required to redeem Jetstar flights. The flights are now around 20% cheaper than previously.
Chief Executive Officer of Qantas Loyalty Lesley Grant said the changes would give customers greater clarity, more choice and better value.
“This is great news for our frequent flyers. Redeeming Classic Award flights on Jetstar now requires 20 per cent fewer points and like-for-like, we believe it is the lowest points proposition for this product offered by any Australian loyalty program,” Ms Grant said.
“We are responding to demand from our members who have told us they want better redemption options on Jetstar, while at the same time increasing the range of destinations available to them thanks to Jetstar’s rapid expansion in Asia.
“The ability to book flights on Jetstar’s network in Asia means members can use points to fly from Sydney to Tokyo on Qantas and onwards with Jetstar Japan to Osaka, Sapporo, Fukuoka and Okinawa,” Ms Grant said.
As an example a Melbourne Gold Coast return ticket used to be 24,000 points is now only 19,200, and around $50 in taxes.
