Qantas has started selling its excess stock of
pyjamas, amenity kits and snacks.
With all Qantas international flights and the
majority of domestic flights currently suspended, the airline has
an oversupply of items including the iconic Business Class pyjamas,
Business Class amenity kits featuring ASPAR skin products, as well
as Tim Tams and snacks that would normally be offered to
passengers travelling in premium cabins.
The airline has put the items together in a care
package that can be sent anonymously as a surprise ‘random act of
kindness’ to a friend, family member, anyone that might be doing
it tough or as a “treat yourself” gift.
An individual can send up to 10 packs anywhere in
Australia via Qantas.com for $25 per pack or 4,350 Qantas Points,
Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service,
Phil Capps, said the airline orders bulk stock in advance and with
minimal flights, has items sitting in storage that could be better
used to cheer people up.
“We already provide goods to some of our charity
partners including Oz Harvest and Neil Perry’s Hope Delivery
initiative but these packs offer Australians the opportunity to
reach out to those they’re separated from due to border
restrictions and lockdowns,” Phil Capps said. “Qantas PJs are always popular, and with people
spending a lot more time at home and wishing they were travelling
somewhere, we think receiving a surprise pair in the mail will be
very well received. And probably very well-worn by the end of all
