Qantas has launched its biggest ever giveaway in a bid to thank fully vaccinated passengers for their role in getting the world “back to normal”.
From Tuesday 24 August 2021, fully vaccinated Australian-based Qantas Frequent Flyers who are 18 and over will be able to claim their reward through the Qantas app – a choice of 1000 Qantas points, 15 status credits, or a $20 flight discount for Qantas or Jetstar.
In addition, members will be automatically entered into a mega prize draw, where ten winners will win a year’s worth of flights, accommodation and fuel, including international destinations when Australia’s borders open.
Whilst planes are grounded around the nation, many Qantas staff have been trained to help the COVID-19 vaccination rollout at the Qudos Bank Arena Vaccination Centre.
Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the vaccine rollout was critical for protecting public health and key to breaking the cycle of lockdowns.
“Getting vaccinated is an important step that every Australian can take that brings us that little bit closer to life as we knew it,” Mr Joyce said.
“As the national carrier, we want to recognise those who have made the effort to protect themselves and the community.
“This is one of the biggest giveaways we’ve ever done. The impact of the pandemic on the travel industry and our own Qantas Group team members means we have a clear vested interest in the success of the vaccine rollout.
“Our crews can’t wait to get back to reuniting family and friends, taking people on holiday and putting some energy back into the whole tourism industry. For us, getting the vaccine rate up to 70 and 80 per cent means thousands of people can go back to work.
