Based in Sydney, Qantas is Australia's national airline. We have a codeshare relationship with Qantas on selected flights within each other's domestic networks when travelling as part of a wider journey.

Type of partnership: Codeshare agreement 

Earning Airpoints Dollars™

Domestic Australian flights with an NZ flight number

If you travel on a Qantas operated flight with an NZ flight number (e.g. NZ7000) domestically within Australia you will earn Airpoints Dollars and Status Points based on the earning rates in the Partner flights section of the Airpoints Dollars earning rates look up table.

Qantas operated flights with a QF number are not eligible to earn Airpoints Dollars or Status Points.

Spending Airpoints Dollars

Airpoints Dollars can be used to purchase tickets on Qantas operated flights with an NZ flight number, directly from the Air New Zealand website. 

Domestic Australia lounge access

Elite and Gold members may use the Qantas Club domestic lounges, with one guest, when travelling on a domestic Qantas flight with an NZ flight number. Simply show your boarding pass and your Elite or Gold membership card at the entrance. 

Children over the age of two are counted as guests when entering Qantas Club lounges.

There is no access to Qantas Club lounges for Elite Partners or Koru members as part of our codeshare agreement.

There are 24 Qantas Club domestic lounges within Australia. A full list of locations can be found on the partner lounge directory.

Other Elite, Gold, Elite Partner and Koru benefits

There are currently no other benefits available for Airpoints members on any Qantas operated flights, including those with an NZ flight number.

Elite, Gold and Koru additional checked baggage allowances

No additional checked baggage allowance applies to Qantas flights, including those with an NZ flight number.

If your journey includes a Qantas flight, even if you are beginning this journey with Air New Zealand, Airpoints members may only check in the ticketed baggage allowance and no additional frequent flyer allowance is permitted.

Please note: Additional frequent flyer baggage entitlements do not apply on any Qantas operated sectors and excess baggage fees may apply.
