Whether you’re an international jet-setter or a regional wanderer, you’ve always got options on Qantas. As if the kangaroo logo wasn’t a dead giveaway, Qantas is as Australian as they come: it’s our largest airline, founded in 1920 in Queensland.
Qantas domestic flights carry over 22 million people annually, with about 4,300 flights departing daily throughout Australia. Its major hubs are Sydney and Melbourne, but you can get just about anywhere in the country, from Ballina to Uluru. International travellers are spoiled for choice too, with more than 680 flights per week to top destinations like Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, London and Los Angeles.
Qantas amenities for all price points
When it comes to free stuff, Qantas is a top choice. They’re the rare airline that still serves complimentary meals on most flights, including passengers in economy class and on domestic flights. (Depending on the time of day, you may receive a free snack and drink instead.) All travellers get a blanket and pillow, and international flights typically get an eye mask and ear plugs, too. Sweet dreams!
If you want amenities that are a bit more epic, but won’t bust your beer budget, go with Qantas premium economy. Cut the line with a special Qantas check-in counter and priority boarding, and stretch out with extra space. lastminute.com.au customer support can help you check in and get going.
Long flight? No problem. The Qantas entertainment app gives you access to over a thousand hours of TV and movies on selected flights. Unless you’re flying around the world a couple of times, that’s plenty to keep you occupied. Just download the app, then connect to the in-flight Wi-Fi once onboard and prepare to be entertained.
Even more perks
Elevate yourself to celebrity status with the Qantas frequent flyer program. Earn points and status credits when you fly with Qantas or their partner airlines, like Jetstar and Emirates. The more you fly, the more you earn—climb that points ladder all the way to Platinum One, why don’t you?
