The airline is teaming up with insurer nib to offer health and travel insurance policies under what will be known as Qantas Assure.

Qantas frequent flyers who purchase a policy can use an app, synced with wearable fitness technology that logs the steps they’ve taken in a day and rewards them with corresponding points.

“This is not about simply earning points when you pay a bill,” Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said in a statement on Monday.

“It’s about offering members the opportunity to be rewarded for being more active, which is something that also has a direct impact on improving your wellness.”

The airline said it was targeting a two to three per cent share of the private health insurance market in its first five years.
