Qantas Frequent Flyers seeking a tropical getaway will have access to more reward seats with over 100 flights available as Points Planes between Sydney, Brisbane and Nouméa.

From 9am today until 31 July 2022, Qantas will make most flights between Australia and New Caledonia Points Planes – where every seat in every cabin, including business class, can be booked as a Classic Flight Reward – for travel in August, September, October and November. Seats on these flights can also be purchased with cash.

Qantas operates five return flights per week with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft between Australia and New Caledonia – a weekly service from Brisbane and four services a week from Sydney.

Qantas also codeshares with Aircalin on an additional seven return flights per week where additional Classic Reward seats will also be available from Sydney and Brisbane.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said flights remain frequent flyers’ favourite way to use their points.

“We continue to see incredibly strong demand across domestic and international travel as frequent flyers use the Qantas Points they saved during the pandemic to book reward seats in record numbers, Ms Wirth said.

“Since flights recommenced in June, we’ve seen hundreds of Australians take off to New Caledonia for tropical holidays each week, and now frequent flyers can book any available seat across most flights using points.”

Here’s how much the seats cost.

Sydney – Nouméa (one way)

  • Economy: 18,000 points plus $119 taxes, fees and carrier charges
  • Business: 41,500 points plus $119 taxes, fees and carrier charges

Brisbane – Nouméa (one way)
