QANTAS: Nouméa points planes – every seat redeemable for points

QANTAS: Nouméa points planes – every seat redeemable for points

Qantas is making over 100 flights available as ‘Points Planes’ from either Sydney or Brisbane to Nouméa bookable from today until 31 July 2022 for travel on eligible flights from August to November 2022.

For Qantas, ‘Points Planes’ is when it declares passengers can redeem frequent flyer points at Classic Reward rates for every seat in every class on the flight.

On Qantas, you have a choice of 5 return flights per week on a Boeing 737-800 (usually seen on domestic flights) aircraft between Australia and New Caledonia. 4 of those flights are out of Sydney, with a single weekly service from Brisbane. Qantas also codeshares with Aircalin on a further seven return flights per week, and these too will have additional Classic Reward seats available from Sydney and Brisbane.

2PAXfly Takeout

With classic reward seats being rarer than hen’s teeth in premium for nearly every overseas destination Qantas flies to, this is a pleasing development. Don’t expect them to stay around for long, though.

OK, New Caledonia is not the Maldives, but with Pacific relaxed service, European infrastructure, and French food – what is not to like?
