China Airlines is ready to take Qantas Frequent Flyers further


An expanded relationship between Qantas and the Taipei carrier boosts the number of destinations frequent flyers can visit using points.

Qantas Frequent Flyers can now use their points to connect beyond Taipei with China Airlines.

Qantas Frequent Flyers can access more destinations around the world using their points after the Flying Kangaroo expanded its partnership with China Airlines.

Previously, members of the Red Roo’s loyalty program could only use their points to fly between Australia and Taipei, not any further.

But now, onward connections within Asia are possible, with one-way Classic Flight Reward seats from Sydney to Danang or Osaka available from 37,800 points along with Brisbane to Tokyo for the same number.

Farther afield, you can now fly one-way Melbourne to Amsterdam, Brisbane to London or Sydney to New York, all via Taipei for just 66,200 points.

China Airlines is a full service airline offering economy, premium and business class seats.

The expanded relationship between the two airlines takes the number of destinations Qantas Frequent Flyer members can redeem their points to more than 1,200, with China Airlines flying an extensive global network of more than 23 countries.

“Our network of more than 45 partner airlines means frequent flyers can use their Qantas Points to travel to more than 1,200 destinations around the world, and this expanded partnership means they have more options than ever,” said Qantas Loyalty CEO, Olivia Wirth.

“We receive great feedback from our members who have travelled to Taipei with China Airlines, and we know that having access to their full and expansive network will be welcome news.”

Points can also be used to book hotels and other experiences on the ground in Taipei and around the world.
