Qantas is targeting frequent flyers with another major deal to get Aussies back in the sky.
Booking a seat on one of a huge number of domestic flights will cost 30 per cent less frequent flyer points from June 1 to November 30, 2022.
Flights will be available between Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Brisbane as well as into more than 20 regional destinations, including Uluru, Coffs Harbour, Broken Hill, Merimbula, Mildura, Newcastle, Orange, Tamworth, Mount Gambier, Burnie, Sunshine Coast and Townsville.
Frequent flyers can book economy Classic Flight Reward seats using points from 12.01am on Monday, May 9 until May 15, 2022.
In a first for the Aussie carrier, points can be used to book any seat on more than 1700 flights during the month of August, known as “Points Planes”.
Qantas Loyalty chief executive Olivia Wirth said she was hopeful the deal would boost tourism to regional destinations over winter.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in demand for regional travel since the start of the pandemic and these Points Planes will help tens of thousands of frequent flyers discover regional Australia this winter,” Ms Wirth said.
“These Points Planes will help boost tourism right across the country during August and make it easier for residents in these regional towns to get away for a city escape.
“Qantas’ regional network plays an important role in supporting local economies and this investment in domestic Points Planes will continue to drive visitation and support travel demand.”
