Sydney, 3 May 2015: Qantas’ youngest flyers will enjoy a range of new benefits when travelling with Qantas, with the unveiling today of “The Joey Club”.

The world’s most successful children’s entertainment group The Wiggles joined Qantas to make the announcement, treating guests to a pop-up performance at Sydney’s Qantas Club.

The program recognises Qantas’ youngest customers and aims to create memorable and engaging travel experiences for them and their families.

Qantas Group Executive, Brand, Marketing and Corporate Affairs Olivia Wirth said travel is an exciting experience, particularly for children, and the airline wants to make sure that it’s as enjoyable as possible for the whole family.

“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 program and a number of new benefits that will make flying with Qantas more fun for kids,” she said.

“Many of our pilots, engineers and cabin crew chose careers in aviation after taking their first flight with Qantas so we want to further inspire a new generation of Qantas customers and employees.”

Children are currently the fastest growing segment of the Qantas Frequent Flyer membership base, with some parents signing up their children from birth.

Qantas’ Frequent Flyer Program also offers Family Transfers, a points transfer feature where parents can transfer or gift Qantas Points to their children or other family members up to four times within a 12-month period.
