Discover the Northern Territory with Qantas Points Planes


Earlier this year, Qantas introduced the idea of a Points Plane. Where every seat on a flight is available as a Reward Seat.

While the Points Planes were originally on specific flights, Qantas has taken it to a new level.

In particular, they have just extended the idea to all seats, on all flights to the Northern Territory. The offer is available between now and 24 October, and you will need to travel between 1 February and 25 March 2020.

You do have to use Qantas operated services. This means that codeshare services, such as Air North operated flights, are excluded.

Qantas operates flight to three cities in the Northern Territory, and they are all included. So, if you are looking to go to Darwin, Alice Springs or Uluru in February or March, this may be a good opportunity.

Qantas has published the options available, and their prices on a special page on their website.

Given the weather, it is not exactly the peak tourist season. Still, it’s a good opportunity.


You are able to make your bookings on the Qantas website as usual. If you search for one of the participating flights you will get the options available to you.

As an example, this is what a search in February for flights between Perth and Darwin returns:

Perth To Darwin Feb

Points Planes

Earlier this year, Qantas introduced the concept of the Points Planes. The idea was to make every seat would be made available as Reward seats for Qantas Frequent Flyers.

Originally, it was to take advantage of opportunities that arise around the network. For example, the first Points Plane was an A380 flight to Tokyo. This was to allow Qantas to fill a plane that otherwise would have flown empty to Japan.

As a follow up to that, members were given the opportunity to be aboard a 747 operating its last flight for Qantas. Even Jetstar has been in on the action, offering opportunities on flights to Japan.
