Here’s All The Cool Stuff Your Qantas App Can Do
This feature is brought to you by Qantas, who are proud to play a part in bringing travellers together with the people they love from around Australia and across the globe.
In this, the year 2019, apps are everything. Pokemon Go, Tinder, Uber Eats – you name it, we’re living our best life through apps. Why should going on holiday be any different?
The Qantas App has a load of features that make travel super easy. Here’s all the cool stuff it can do. You’re welcome.
First thing’s first: you can book flights through the app. So, if the urge to travel suddenly pops up while you’re on the bus or doing your shopping, you can just pull out your phone. Or even, I don’t know, covertly book a holiday while you’re sitting at your office desk… Just spit balling here.
Manage your flight
Once your flight is booked (jealous), you can use the Qantas App to manage your booking and select a seat right up until check-in opens. You can also get a copy of your boarding pass on the app, so you can check in on selected flights with your phone.
The app will send you alerts about check-in, departure gate and boarding times, so you can avoid the panic and last-minute rush to the gate (again, jealous).
