Qantas is launching its reward campaign for COVID-19 vaccinated Australians to recognise their role in helping the country get out of lockdown.

From tomorrow, fully vaccinated Australian-based frequent flyer members who are 18 and over will be able to claim their reward through the Qantas App by choosing one of three options:

  • 1000 Qantas points
  • 15 status credits (which help Frequent Flyers move up between Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers)
  • $20 flight discount for Qantas or Jetstar.

Members will then be automatically entered into a ‘mega prize draw’. Ten lucky winners will enjoy a year’s worth of Qantas and Jetstar flights around Australia and overseas when borders reopen, free accommodation across Accor hotels and resorts, and free fuel from bp. Specifically, the T&Cs state that each prize will include:

  • 12 x $4,000 and 1 x $2,000 Qantas Major Prize Flight Passes for use on flights (total value $50,000)
  • 1 million ALL – Accor Live Limitless reward points for accommodation bookings (notionally valued at $31,800)
  • a $3,650 bp Gift Card.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the vaccine rollout was critical for protecting public health and key to breaking the cycle of lockdowns.

“Getting vaccinated is an important step that every Australian can take that brings us that little bit closer to life as we knew it.

“As the national carrier, we want to recognise those who have made the effort to protect themselves and the community.

“This is one of the biggest giveaways we’ve ever done. The impact of the pandemic on the travel industry and our own Qantas Group team members means we have a clear vested interest in the success of the vaccine rollout.

“Our crews can’t wait to get back to reuniting family and friends, taking people on holiday and putting some energy back into the whole tourism industry. For us, getting the vaccine rate up to 70 and 80 per cent means thousands of people can go back to work.

“With the Federal Government’s vaccine program ramping up across the country, now is the ideal time to say thank you to Australians for stepping up and protecting themselves and others.”

Australians can claim their points, status credits or flight discounts and be automatically entered in the mega prize draw by downloading the Qantas App (via the App Store or through Google Play), using their Medicare app to access and upload their COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate and selecting their reward choice. Vaccination certificate information will be deleted upon verification.

Qantas will be promoting this initiative and encouraging Aussies to get vaccinated via a large media campaign.
