It’s on! Virgin Australia has today launched a double status credits offer that gives customers a fast track to higher tiers of status with the airline.

To take advantage of this offer, you must register for it here and then, by Sunday 24 November, book an eligible flight for travel to 13 October 2020.

An Eligible Flight is any Virgin Australia marketed and operated flight and fare class for travel between 18 November 2019 and 13 October 2020 (inclusive) that normally earns Status Credits.

You can book as many flights as you like, but make sure every person on the booking activates this offer.

You need to earn 250 status credits to reach the silver tier (200 to renew it in subsequent years), 500 to hit gold (400 to renew) and 1,000 to reach platinum (800 to renew). All the perks of status are explained here but in short:

  • silver status provides priority check in, two lounge passes each year and 50% bonus points on flights earned
  • gold status provides priority check in and premium entry, more expansive lounge access, Fly Ahead and bonus points
  • platinum status provides complimentary upgrades and a bunch of other premium perks on top.

If you’ve been chasing status with the airline, this is a great opportunity.
