Qantas Frequent flyer and Ticketek have announced a new partnership which will allow Frequent Flyers to earn and use Qantas Points when booking live events and experiences.
However, the partnership is promising extra offers for Qantas Frequent Flyers. For example, Qantas Frequent Flyers will have access to special pre-sales and special offers.
It is planned that frequent flyers will be able to use their Qantas Points to purchase events and experiences from March 2024. Earning points on selected purchases will follow shortly after.
The partnership has a few parts to it beyond the normal earn and use points.
Available Now: Exclusive Pre-Sales and Special Offers
Qantas Frequent Flyers will have access to exclusive pre-sale opportunities and special offers. This givew Qantas Frequent Flyers early access to popular events.
Qantas and Ticketek recognise that many people travel in order to attend entertainment events. However, many found organising tickets, flights and accommodation a barrier to attending events in another city.
As a result, they are introducing entertainment packages. These will be all inclusive packages offering flights, accommodation and tickets.
Earning and Using Qantas Points for Live Events and Experiences
From March 2024, Qantas Frequent Flyers will be able to redeem their Qantas Points for select Ticketek events and experiences. It is planned that the ability to earn Qantas Points on specific Ticketek products will follow.
To mark the announcement of the partnership, Ticketek and Qantas Frequent Flyer have released three entertainment packages. These packages are available exclusively at Qantas Experiences.
- The newly announced Jerry Seinfeld Live – Third Sydney Show, Qudos Bank Arena, Sunday 16 June 2024 (including exclusive pre-sale access from 11am today)
- Australia vs West Indies Cricket Test Series, The Gabba, 25 – 29 January 2024
- Lightscape Melbourne, Royal Botanic Gardens, 14 June – 4 August 2024
Across Australia, Ticketek hosts over 20,000 live events annually, across entertainment, sports, and theater. On top of that, one in five tickets is purchase by an Interstate or International visitor. As such, it makes sense to find ways to make the travel to events more seamless.
Finally, the partnership offers Qantas Frequent Flyers additional points earning opportunities.
