New Zealanders will now earn Qantas Points on every Jetstar domestic flight across the country, including flights to four new regional destinations on sale from September. Previously, Qantas Frequent Flyer members travelling on Jetstar New Zealand have earned Qantas Points only when adding Plus and Max bundles to their Starter fare to include extras such as food, baggage and ticket flexibility.
From today, all Jetstar domestic Starter fares within New Zealand will attract a minimum of 400 Qantas Points. Customers purchasing Plus bundles will earn a minimum of 800 Qantas Points, while those buying the Max bundle will receive a minimum of 1,200 Qantas Points.
New Zealanders purchasing the lowest fares will reach a domestic reward flight faster by flying with Jetstar domestically, versus flying with its key domestic competitor.
The expansion of Qantas Points to more Jetstar customers follows last week’s announcement that will see Jetstar flying to four new regional destinations from December 2015. Jetstar executives have held meetings with representatives from Nelson and Rotorua this week and will visit other potential destinations next week.
New Zealand residents can join Qantas Frequent Flyer for free at www.qantas.co.nz, with the usual NZ$50 join fee waived until 31 December 2015.
