Fly in style: Qantas launches 28-day lounge membership from $99

Qantas is giving flyers more affordable access to its swish lounges, with the launch of Qantas Club Flexible. 

Qantas is giving flyers more affordable access to its swish lounges, with the launch of Qantas Club Flexible. 

Available today, the new short-term “subscription” allows Qantas passengers entry to the carrier’s 30 branded lounges for 28 days, doing away with the need to commit to a pricier annual membership. 

Flexible membership will cost $99 for 28 days plus a $129 one-off joining fee. That’s $228 for the first month (if your head’s whirling too much to do the math) and just $99 per month thereafter.

Along with access to Qantas Club, Domestic, and International Business lounges around the world, Qantas Club Flexible members will score perks like Domestic On Departure Upgrade rewards and a free Qantas Frequent Flyer Membership. 

Members can cancel the 28-day rolling membership up to three days before renewal, with benefits lasting until the end of that cycle. 

In line with Qantas Group’s sustainability goals, Qantas Club Flexible members will receive a digital membership card via the carrier’s app.

To sweeten the deal, travellers who join and fly before 31 March 2025 will nab extra baggage allowance for QF domestic, international and Jetstar flights. 

“We have been focussed on listening and responding to customer feedback over the past 12 months, and we know our customers are looking for flexible options when it comes to lounge access,” a Qantas spokesperson said.

“Qantas Club Flexible gives customer the choice to enjoy the benefits of our Qantas lounges in a time frame that suits them – the perfect option for travellers who don’t fly every month.”

The flying kangaroo is investing big in its lounge network. Expect a new lounge in Hobart by 2027 with almost double the current capacity. The Adelaide lounge precinct is also getting a makeover, including a refurbished Qantas Club and a new Business lounge, while Broome’s Qantas Club is also getting a fresh new look.

Among its international lounge upgrades, QF unveiled its refreshed Hong Kong lounge in 2023. Karryon checked out that lounge earlier this year.
