In September last year, Virgin Australia announced a range of measures to help customers earn and retain status, including a bonus status credits offer on new bookings.
Under the arrangement, Velocity Frequent Flyer members who booked eligible Virgin Australia services from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022 could receive a significant boost to the status credits they earn: up to double status credits for economy bookings and up to 45 per cent bonus status credits for business class bookings.
Virgin Australia has now extended this offer for travel to 30 June 2022. This applies to both new and existing bookings. Here are the eligible fare classes and bonus earn rates (note, reward bookings are not eligible for this offer):
This is a generous move from Virgin and should help many customers retain their status.
