Qantas Frequent Flyers can now access reward
seats, earn Qantas Points
and receive tier benefits across the entire Air France – KLM Royal
Dutch Airlines network.
As part of a
comprehensive new partnership between the airline groups, Qantas Frequent Flyers will be able to fly to over 60 new destinations
across Europe and Africa including Biarritz, France; Dresden, Germany; Calvi, Corsica, France; and Bristol, United Kingdom.
In 2018 Qantas established codeshare agreements with
Air France and KLM allowing the customers of each airline to
connect on flights between Australia and Europe via Singapore and
Hong Kong. Customers also benefited from reciprocal lounge access
and Qantas Points on Qantas coded flights.
This latest development allows members to access reward seats and earn points
on all fares across all Air France and KLM marketed flights
Frequent flyers with Gold status or higher will also be
able to access tier benefits including priority boarding, priority
check-in and extra baggage allowance on any Air France and KLM
Qantas Loyalty CEO, Olivia Wirth, said, “Members will now have access to hundreds of thousands
more reward seats in popular destinations including Paris,
Amsterdam, Rome, Barcelona and Athens, as well as new destinations
across France, Italy and Northern Europe. Frequent
Flyers used 10 billion Qantas Points booking dream trips across
Europe last year. We know this partnership will allow our members
to explore more of the continent and find reward seats more
The agreement between Qantas Frequent
Flyer, Air France and KLM Flying Blue means members will be able
to earn points when they travel on eligible flights across each
airline. Members will also be able to redeem Classic Flight Reward
seats across Air France and KLM’s economy and business cabins.
To earn Qantas Points with Air France or KLM, members
simply need to enter their Qantas Frequent Flyer number when
booking their next flight.
Members can redeem available reward
seats when they log in and select to “use points” when searching
for flights on the Qantas website.
