Virgin Australia revises Velocity points rates, releases 1 million reward seats

Virgin Australia has today announced changes to its Velocity Frequent Flyer loyalty program, including a new pricing structure and a one-off release of extra reward seats.

New reward seat prices

The airline has introduced three new price tiers for domestic economy reward seats.

Tier 1 seats represent a price reduction from before, while Tier 2 is the ‘old’ pricing and Tier 3 prices are actually higher.

Business class costs remain the same.

The airline hasn’t said how these different pricing tiers will be applied.

It seems likely that the key issue will be demand. For less popular routes and travel periods, expect Tier 1 or Tier 2 prices to apply, while in peak periods, the higher pricing will probably come into play.

Tier 3 pricing will be implemented from 5 July 2023.

More reward seats

Virgin Australia has also released a million extra domestic economy reward seats, available to book from today until 18 June 2023.

The seats are spread out across its domestic network.

Seats are available through to 30 April next year, but blackout dates apply, such as around school holidays.
