Qantas has announced new plans to help top-tiered Frequent Flyers retain elite membership status by extending status support for members who are facing a possible tier downgrade between now and June 2022.
How it works
Australian and New Zealand-based Frequent Flyers (Silver and above) with a membership year ending in or before June 2022 will be able to maintain their status for another year by booking an eligible flight prior to their membership year-end, for travel until June 2022.
Qantas Frequent Flyer will also roll over eligible Status Credits that members earned this year into their new membership year.
There are five membership levels in Qantas Frequent Flyer from Bronze up to Platinum One. The higher the tier, the more member benefits.
With Australia’s international border still closed for now and domestic lockdowns currently making it challenging for members to earn the required Status Credits to retain their tier level, Qantas Frequent Flyers will no doubt be reassured with this new retention lifeline.
