Now that Virgin Australia has new owners and its future looks more secure, the team at Velocity Frequent Flyer is ramping up activity to give members more ways to earn and burn points.

Their latest promotion is 30% off the points cost of economy class reward seats for flights all the way to 8 September 2021. If you’re sitting on a stash of Velocity Points and have a trip in mind, this could be a good opportunity to use them.

This promotion ends next Tuesday 20 October 2020.

Keep in mind that Virgin is operating a reduced domestic schedule because of the coronavirus. The latest information on routes is available here.

You should also be aware that Virgin’s airport lounges remain closed, and inflight catering is currently limited to complimentary water and a snack. Complimentary meals and the purchase of additional food and drinks will not be available on board.

If you’re keen to burn some points this way, simply head over to the Velocity site to book your reward seat. The discount will be applied automatically.

Virgin is also offering 30% off business class reward seats, though they aren’t great value given the lack of lounge access and dining onboard.
