Fee Free cancellation in form of a Voucher. If you had a fare you were going to abandon this could be of use. I would expect Virgin Australia Group to follow soon. Still nothing on Status freezes but I would imagine that will be announced in the future
Qantas and Jetstar customers given option to cancel flights and receive travel credit
Applies to customers with existing and new bookings on domestic and international flights
ADVICE FOR CUSTOMERS
Customers should not call the contact centres. Due to high demand, we are experiencing long call wait times.
To access this offer:
Qantas Anyone holding a Qantas ticket for travel before 31 July 2020 can get a flight credit and retain the full value of your booking. You need to do this by 30 April 2020. The flight credit is valid for booking and travel by 31 December 2021. This gives you more than 18 months to plan, rebook and travel.
If you already have a Qantas flight credit issued on or after 31 January 2020, this will also be automatically extended but may take a few weeks to update in our system.
From 9am tomorrow Monday 16 March 2020, Jetstar customers should go to Manage My Booking on Jetstar.com. Please do not call the Jetstar contact centre before that time should you need further assistance.
Voucher Valid: Book within 6 months of issue. Travel within 12 months
**If you have reward point booking, this can be cancelled fee free. If you have booked via a third party site (Aunt Betty etc), please contact these specific companies. I strongly do advise against booking on those sites as in these situations of change (regardless weather, virus) they are difficult to deal with.
*I will add in details for Virgin Australia if they follow tonight or tomorrow morning
Update: Extended further to Dec 2021, thanks dealbot
