Qantas selling day passes for lounge access

30 Jun 2016 by Clement Huang
Qantas is trialling a new system that allows lower-tier members of its frequent-flyer programme to purchase single-entry lounge passes during off-peak travel periods. Until now, access to the lounges has typically been reserved for high-status frequent flyers, Qantas Club members and business class travellers. The lounge passes will be offered on an invitation-only basis. Eligible frequent flyers will be sent an e-invitation three to five days before their flights. “We regularly monitor lounge capacity so invitations to purchase a lounge access pass will only be made available during what we know are quiet times,” a Qantas spokesman told Business Insider Australia. Each lounge pass is valid for a single use, and is priced differently based on the type of lounge that a traveller wishes to visit: use of the airline’s domestic lounges costs A$49 (US$36) or 7,000 Qantas points, while international business class lounges will set you back A$69 (US$51) or 9,900 points. For premium international lounges in Hong Kong, a lounge pass costs A$99 (US$74) or 14,500 points. For more information, visit qantas.com.au Clement Huang
