We need to incentivise vaccination: Qantas CEO

While our politicians send mixed messages about vaccination, Qantas has taken steps to encourage mass vaccination in Australia by offering “mega prizes” to those who choose to get vaccinated against COVID-19. 


In July, the airline will launch an incentive program that will give vaccinated Australians the chance to win unlimited travel for a year for ten families, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce told the Today Show. 


“We are looking at giving 1000 points flight vouchers, credits and we are going to offer ten mega prizes, at least one for each state and territory, where a family of four get unlimited travel on the Qantas and Jetstar network, anywhere in the network for a year,” Joyce said.


“We are trying our best to help with this rollout,” he said, adding that he wants other companies to come forward with incentives. 


Quick mass vaccination is obviously in Qantas’ best interests, the airline’s chief customer officer Stephanie Tully saying the airline was “motivated” to help with the national vaccine effort, News Corp reported. 


The Qantas incentives will be retrospective and will include anyone who has already been vaccinated and will apply to anybody that is vaccinated until the end of 2021.
