Qantas will release the first of its new-look Frequent Flyer cards in the coming months, and we've got a sneak peek at the shiny new plastic.
The cards incorporate the new Qantas Frequent Flyer brand – note how the Q and F are called out to echo the airline's flight code.
(If you're wondering who the high-flying Mr W. H. Fysh is – that's Sir Wilmot Hudson Fysh, born in Launceston in 1895 and one of the founders of Qantas in 1920, after Fysh served in Australia's Royal Flying Corps during World War I.)
There's also a more stylised approach to the iconic flying kangaroo logo, which incorporates a series of expanding curved lines reminiscent of Aboriginal artwork.
Of course, each card includes the smartchip for Qantas' streamlined checkin – even the entry-level Bronze card, which has previously not been blessed with this time-saving technology.
Members of the elite Qantas Chairman's Lounge will get a card with a slightly different design.
Flip each piece of plastic over and you'll see how it doubles as a Qantas Cash travel money card.
Activated on an opt-in basis, this prepaid card contains 'virtual wallets' for up to nine currencies – including the Aussie dollar – which can be used for shopping in Australia and overseas, as well as online.
The Qantas Cash card also permits cash withdrawals from ATMs internationally and within Australia, and supports tap-and-go PayPass technology.
The first batch of the new Qantas cards are due to reach frequent flyers in September as part of the Qantas Cash rollout.
