QANTAS’ Frequent Flyer members can now earn Qantas Points when they book an Airbnb accommodation directly from Qantas.com.
Every dollar spent will equate to one point earned.
This marks the first time such a partnership is being formed, where Airbnb is offering distribution on an airline’s website and allowing them to earn airline loyalty points.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said it was a natural fit for two brands to work together. “We know many of our customers are just as likely to arrange an Airbnb as they are to book a hotel, and we wanted to recognise and reward them for that,” he said.
Qantas had already allowed its Frequent Flyer members to earn points when booking hotel accommodations from Qantas.com.
