Qantas has opened a quickfire three-day sale on 100 domestic routes a day after a new offering for high-rolling frequent flyers.

From Tuesday until Friday, people can book one-way tickets on one of more than 30 routes for less than $150.

Bookings can be made for May to December. The airlines says the sale offers discounts on more than one million seats.

More than 100 routes are on sale, including Launceston to Melbourne ($105), Ballina to Sydney ($1190, Sydney to Gold Coast ($129), Proserpine to Brisbane ($129), Hobart to Melbourne ($135), Brisbane to Hervey Bay ($139), Maroochydore to Sydney ($149) and Adelaide to Whyalla ($149).

On Monday, Qantas announced major changes to its frequent flyer program.

The number of frequent flyer seats available each year increased fourfold to 20 million.

It’s been a turbulent year for the former government-owned airline.

In September, chief executive Alan Joyce quit, and the High Court ruled the company illegally outsourced 1700 jobs during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In March, Qantas was fined $250,000 for breaching workplace health and safety laws. Qantas subsidiary Qantas Ground Services illegally stood down Theo Seremetidis for telling other workers to stop cleaning and servicing planes arriving from China in February 2020.
