Qantas Frequent Flyer signs major new Ticketek partnership

by James Wilkinson

Qantas Frequent Flyers will be able to earn and use Qantas Points when booking live events and experiences, enjoy special pre-sales and access new ticket and travel packages as part of a new partnership between Qantas and Ticketek.

From March 2024, it is planned that frequent flyers will be able to use Qantas Points towards select Ticketek events and experiences, with the ability to earn Qantas Points on select Ticketek products following shortly after.

From now, members will receive access to exclusive pre-sales and special offers, as well as new entertainment packages that combine event tickets with flights and hotels.

The new ticket and travel packages are designed to make event experiences more seamless for the millions of customers who travel to events every year, which is expected to rise with the growing ‘Tour Tourism’ trend.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said the partnership with Ticketek would expand the ways that Qantas Frequent Flyer could reward its members.

“Making it easier for our members to enjoy special moments and memorable events has always been a key part of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, and this partnership is going to make more of those experiences possible,” she said.

“With more than 20,000 live events each year across entertainment, sport and theatre, partnering with Ticketek opens up significant opportunities for Frequent Flyers to get even more value from their membership and their Qantas Points.

“We know that live events are a big driver of travel so we’ve worked with Ticketek to curate packages for our members that bundle tickets, flights and accommodation for an all-inclusive and seamless experience.”
