Qantas offers “parental leave” for FFP members

15 Apr 2016 by Clement Huang
Qantas has introduced a new initiative to help members of its loyalty programme keep their status while on parental leave. The “Status Hold” initiative is available to Qantas Frequent Flyer silver-, gold- and platinum-tier members, and allows them to maintain their status for up to 18 months, even if they do not earn enough status credits required to retain that tier. Applicants have to be members who are taking at least six consecutive months off paid employment to spend time with their family. Both parents may apply for the initiative and will be deemed eligible if they are:
  • A parent of a baby or babies that are due to be born within the next three months or were born in the last six months
  • A foster parent who will be caring for a child within the next three months or who has started caring for a child within the last six months
  • A parent who will be adopting a child within the next three months or who has adopted a child within the last six months
Members looking to continue to expand their family can also apply for Status Hold twice during a five-year period. For more information, visit qantas.com.au Clement Huang
