Qantas has enhanced the benefits of its elite Platinum One Frequent Flyer Programme (FFP).

Platinum One was introduced by Qantas Frequent Flyer in November 2011 to further reward its most high flying members.

The launch benefits were based around providing additional services and support to the most frequent flyers and included access to 24/7 support from a dedicated Platinum One team, early points upgrade processing, additional access to Classic Awards seats, complimentary exit row seating, Qantas epiQure membership and invitations to money cant buy experiences ranging from intimate private concerts and backstage tours by world class performers to personal chef dinners and Qantas flight simulator sessions.

Platinum One members can now receive additional perks including:

- Platinum membership for a spouse or de facto domestic partner. Platinum One. Members can nominate a partner to receive complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer Platinum status which includes benefits such as access to the Qantas International First Lounges and Domestic Business Lounges.

- Waivers for any fare differential that might be payable at the airport to move to an earlier Qantas domestic flight when travelling on a flexible fare.

- Booking fee waivers for new eligible commercial bookings when you book via telephone with Qantas.

- Complimentary Qantas Golf Club Premium membership, with the Qantas Golf Club planned for launch this coming summer.

-  Double points earn with Qantas Restaurants

As an integrated airline loyalty program, Qantas Frequent Flyer is on a constant quest to make improvements to the recognition and reward sides of the program and our Platinum One members are top of mind for this, said the CEO of Qantas Loyalty, Lesley Grant. These are our most frequent flyers, spending as much time in the air as they do on the ground. Feedback around the Platinum One tier has been that while the members themselves value the benefits and are always keen for more, they also value the opportunity to share the experiences with a partner. This is why we have decided to take it one step further by offering a highly desirable Platinum Qantas Frequent Flyer membership for their domestic partner.

Other new benefits for Platinum One members include a bonus of 75,000 Qantas Points when they reach 5,000 Status Credits in a membership year flying with Qantas and Jetstar and a further 100,000 Qantas Points when they reach 7,000 Status Credits in a membership year flying with Qantas and Jetstar. The use of these points are at the members discretion. They can redeem them for flight upgrades, transfers to family members, flight and hotel bookings, wine from Qantas epiQure, or to buy gift vouchers, items or experiences from more than 3000 options available on the Qantas Store.
