Flying is now even more rewarding for travellers who capitalise on the partnership between Qantas’ Frequent Flyer programme and ALL – Accor Live Limitless, with the loyalty programmes expanding the benefits to more guests and increasing the value for their linked members.

The Qantas Frequent Flyer and ALL – Accor Live Limitless partnership rewards members twice (once in each programme) when they fly with Qantas and/or stay at one of Accor’s hotels.

As part of the partnership’s expansion, Qantas Frequent Flyer Gold card holders – equivalent to oneworld Sapphire – are also now eligible to double dip on rewards when they link their membership accounts, which is a perk previously reserved for Platinum and Platinum One Frequent Flyers only.

This means that guests holding gold status and above in each programme who have linked their accounts will enjoy more than double the ALL Accor value when they book Qantas flights, with the earn rate increasing to 1 ALL – Accor reward point per A$2 spent, up from 1 reward point per A$5 spent – on top of the Qantas points they would already earn.

Since the partnership launched in 2021, Qantas says hundreds of thousands of members have linked their accounts “earning millions of Qantas and ALL Points”.

Qantas frequent flyers can already convert their Accor points to Qantas points at the rate of one Accor point per one Qantas point (in increments of 2000).

“We have had an incredible response from our frequent flyers who are loving being able to earn points twice when they fly with Qantas and stay in an Accor hotel, and we know our Gold members will enjoy the added benefits,” Qantas loyalty chief executive, Olivia Wirth, commented.

She added that the airline was always focused on giving its loyal members more value which is why it has expanded the programme.

“Our partnership with Qantas, where members of ALL – Accor Live Limitless and Qantas Frequent Flyer can for the first time be rewarded twice when they fly with Qantas and stay at one of Accor’s hotels, is a game changer in the tourism industry.

Accor was the first hotel operator in the Pacific to reward their customer’s loyalty with exceptional partner benefits, which includes the ability to boost Qantas Points and the opportunity to attend world-class sporting and entertainment experiences at Accor Stadium and Qudos Bank Area in Sydney,” commented Accor Asia-Pacific chief executive, Sarah Derry.
