If you are looking to boost your Qantas Frequent Flyer balance and have some travel in mind, now is a good time to book. Make sure you register or this promotion first.

Current offer: double points for Qantas and Emirates bookings

You can earn double Qantas Points on eligible domestic and international Qantas- and Emirates-operated flights when you register and make a booking between now and 1:59am (NZDT) 17 November 2018 and travel between 1 December 2018 and 30 June 2019.

An eligible flight for the purpose of this promotion means any Qantas- or Emirates-operated with a QF flight number on your ticket where Qantas Points are normally earned. Partner flights other than on Emirates are not eligible, so that excludes Jetstar.

Do not forget to include your Qantas Frequent Flyer number in your booking to ensure you earn double points.

You can make multiple bookings to earn double points during the promotional period.

The eligible travel period is broad—flights from 1 December 2018 and 30 June 2019 are included, along with all domestic and international flights in any class of travel.

You’ll need to register first, and there’s nothing lost by doing so other than about 60 seconds of your time—consider if there are any bookings you could make now instead of after the promotion period.

The promotion is likely designed to drive forward bookings for Qantas into 2019.

Note that for bookings made previous to this promotion, you will not receive double points—you must register before making your booking.

And all passengers must register separately for this promotion.
