QANTAS’ new partnership between its frequent flyer scheme and Luxury Escapes (see page 2) will make customer’s travel experience more rewarding, Qantas Loyalty exec manager commercial David Young says.
“It’s a great way for our members to build up their points balance to use towards their next holiday before they’ve even set off & earn points on the bulk of their holiday expenses.”
Young said having the option to use points on a Luxury Escapes trip “will make indulging even more appealing and more affordable,” especially if a QFFF member combines it with points used for a reward flight or upgrade to a premium cabin.
Luxury Escapes gm Blake Hutchison told Travel Daily the latest partnership was a sign of the continual evolution of the travel package specialist which now has in excess of 2 million members in Australia.
“We are going to have a significant opportunity to drive an affluent based customer to our hotel room network through Qantas Frequent Flyers’ ongoing marketing and promotions”.
Qantas Points will be able to be redeemed on hotels & resorts and packages with Qantas flights.
The tie-up was formalised last night at an event in Sydney, with Hutchison pictured above with Belinda Mason, head of coalition partnerships, Qantas.
