On Monday (February 8, 2021), Qantas announced added booking flexibility with unlimited flight date changes at least through January 2022, complimentary beer and wine in Economy Class, and one million seats on sale to 55 domestic destinations from only $99 one-way. The carrier’s updated ‘Fly Flexible’ policy applies to all new domestic and Trans-Tasman Qantas and QantasLink flights booked from today through at least the end of April. Unlimited flight date changes can be made for any available seat up to 355 days in advance and the change fee will be waived, though a fare difference may apply. In Monday’s announcement, Qantas Group’s Chief Customer Officer, Stephanie Tully, said,

“Customers have told us that sudden changes to border restrictions by state governments are giving them second thoughts about going on holidays or taking a business trip. To help manage the uncertainty, we’ve introduced the highest level of flexibility in the market so people can plan their next trip with confidence. As the national carrier, we have an important role to play in helping the industry recover from COVID-19, and we know that given the right opportunity, people are keen to travel. By giving customers unlimited flight date changes for almost a year, we think it will encourage more people to book, helping to boost tourism which is so vital to local economies and businesses around the country.”

Additionally, this month Qantas is enhancing guest inflight food and beverage options in line with their premium full-service offering. The changes include complimentary beer and wine for Economy guests across all domestic and regional flights, including the limited-edition Qantas Centenary lager by Lion Nathan. The airline is also offering new Economy hot meal options such as gourmet beef pies, roast vegetable quiches, beef and mushroom ragout and roasted chicken with tomato, garlic and lemon sauce. Qantas remains the only Australian domestic carrier to offer a full meal service including breakfast and dinner, including service on key capital city routes between Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The service will also be rolled out on shorter flights from March 2021.

Speaking on enhanced onboard service options, Ms. Tully added,

“People know exactly what to expect when they book with Qantas, whether its complimentary food and drinks, baggage, fast Wi-Fi or access to dozens of lounges around Australia. While COVID-19 has forced a reduction in some inflight services, we’re pleased to bring back some of our most popular options as customers take to the skies with Qantas again.”

Qantas has also opened most of their 35 Qantas Club, Business Lounges and Chairman's lounges across Australia. The airline has also introduced a comprehensive set of health and safety measures to ensure the wellbeing of their guests and team members through their ‘Fly Well’ program, including mandatory masks, hand sanitizing stations and enhanced aircraft cleaning. As previously mentioned, Qantas has launched a nationwide fare sale across all capital city and regional destinations with one-way Economy fares from $99 and one-way Business Class fares from $399. The special fares are available from today through February 15, 2021, for travel through mid-March.
