In the meantime, check out our guide to how to make the most of Qantas' scheme. Another useful recent Qantas development you can take advantage of right now (as seen in the picture): the airline has finally integrated its carbon offset payment scheme into its main ticket buying site, so you don't need to perform a totally separate transaction to help compensate for the effects of your travelling.
