With the trans Tasman bubble opening date to be announced next week, Qantas and Jetstar will offer uncapped Classic Flight Reward seats on their Tasman flights for the first three days of travel.

Once the date is revealed, then both airlines will make available thousands of seats across all cabins over the 72 hour travel period.

Qantas and Jetstar will also be adding significantly more flights between Australia and New Zealand across a number of routes, flying to all its pre-COVID destinations.

This is big news as traditionally both airlines cap the number of Classic Flight Reward seats on any flight.

Qantas will also add 50 per cent more Classic Reward seats for the remainder of the year for trans Tasman flights.

“Our members have been stockpiling points during COVID for exactly these opportunities and we want to help make it easier to get on one of the first international flights,” said Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth.

“That’s why every seat on every Qantas and Jetstar flight for the first three days of the travel bubble opening will be Classic Flight Rewards.”

Classic Flight Reward seats across the Tasman start from 18,000 Qantas Points with Qantas and 14,400 with Jetstar plus taxes, fees and carrier charges.

Customers travelling on the Points Planes, or on any Qantas operated flights booked before 30 April 2021 can enjoy added flexibility with unlimited fee free date changes when travelling before 28 February 2022.
