Qantas aims to lure a new generation of future frequent flyers with the introduction of ‘The Joey Club’ – which was recently launched in Sydney with special assistance from The Wiggles.
Targeted at three- to 10-years-olds, the hope of the club is that it will make the in-flight experience a memorable occasion for kids by giving them a number of enhanced benefits and amenities. These include a Qantas Joey Club novelty passport, dedicated children’s menus in domestic lounges, and expanded in-flight entertainment for youngsters.
“Looking after our loyal customers, including our tiny travellers, is incredibly important to Qantas. We have always had initiatives in place for children travelling with us but the Joey Club takes it to the next level with a formal programme and a number of new benefits,” said Olivia Wirth, Qantas group executive of brand, marketing and corporate affairs.
The benefits of the Joey Club come in addition to existing family-friendly amenities such as special in-flight meal options for infants and children, priority family boarding and extra baggage allowance for a stroller or push-chair on selected routes.
The programme comes into effect in June this year, and Qantas will waive the normal joining fee of $89.50 until 31 December 2015.
