by James Wilkinson

Qantas has unveiled two special Christmas aircraft bringing festive flair to customers along with double points for all Frequent Flyers who travel on them during the month of December.

A Qantas spokesperson said a QantasLink Q400 ‘Dasher-8’ and 737 ‘Roo-dolph’ will join the national carrier’s fleet throughout December, flying to a number of destinations across the Qantas domestic and regional network.

“Dasher-8 rolled out of the Brisbane hangar this week (Dec 4) decorated in Christmas livery to mark the start of the festive season,” the spokesperson said.

“Customers travelling on Roo-dolph will start their journey with Christmas carols being played throughout boarding and a festive seatback screen.”

Excitingly, customers who find themselves travelling on Dasher-8 or Roo-dolph will receive double Qantas Frequent Flyer points for their flight from now until 31 December 2023.

At the same time, Qantas has also launched a Christmas sale for Australians to book their next getaway, with sale fares available on almost every domestic route.

Domestic Economy sale fares start from $109 one-way, with more than 40 routes on sale for under $150 during a range of travel periods between January to September 2024.
