Effective this week, members who link their Qantas Frequent Flyer and ALL – Accor Live Limitless accounts can earn points in both programs on eligible hotel bookings and Qantas flights.
Almost 30 million members across both programs in Australia and the Asia Pacific are set to be rewarded for staying at Accor and flying on Qantas’ domestic and international flights. Details of the program include:

Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath said this was a major milestone for the travel industry, enabling greater benefits for loyalty members across more than 1,200 Accor hotels, apartments and resorts in the Asia Pacific region.
“We are joining forces to reward our customers, delivering exceptional travel benefits and unrivalled service for people who enjoy our two much-loved brands,” McGrath said.
“Customers are at the heart of this partnership which is set to bring significant extended benefits for travellers. This is a first for a hospitality group and airline in Australia.”
“Qantas is the perfect partner for Accor to deepen our relationship with, and growing our loyalty members’ benefits will strengthen our customers’ commitment to our leading brands, like Sofitel, Mantra and Novotel. We predict that this relationship will increase membership and engagement across both of our programs.”
Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said today marks a significant milestone for Qantas Frequent Flyer members, as Australians prepare to travel again.
“Our partnership with Accor launches at an ideal time, with domestic and international borders reopening and frequent flyers starting to plan and book their next getaway,” Wirth commented.
“Eligible members of the Qantas and Accor loyalty programs will earn twice when they fly and stay in a hotel or resort. We know this will be very popular for our frequent flyers whether they are travelling for business or on holidays.
“We’ve seen frequent flyers booking flights in record numbers, with billions of points used to book flights in recent weeks. This shows just how important and valuable points are to our members, and this initiative will help members of both programs get away on their dream trip sooner.”
