Backtrack: Virgin Australia extends elite membership

Virgin Australia Business Class, Velocity Frequent Flyer

Velocity Frequent Flyer has now matched Qantas on elite status extensions, announcing it will be providing members with a 12 month extension of their current status tier. This will be offered in addition to the Status Credit gift announced this morning, which disappointed some loyal Velocity Frequent Flyer members.

The new action means that all Silver, Gold and Platinum Velocity members will receive:

  1. The existing Status Credit gift (210 Status Credits for Platinum members, 105 for Gold members, 60 for Silver members); and
  2. A 12 month extension to their current status, meaning that there are no minimum flight sectors required for members to maintain their current tier for the next year.

The extension, coupled with gift of additional status credits, means that some frequent flyer members are likely to move up to the next level if they were close to doing so.
