Digging into the details of Velocity elite membership

A Virgin Australia bonus status credit offer could fast-track you to elite status, unlocking perks like lounge access, extra baggage allowance, priority upgrades, and more.

  • Access to the Virgin Australia Lounge (as well as selected international airport lounges operated by partner airlines)
  • Priority Check-in, Screening and Boarding

Some Velocity status credits can be earned on the ground.

Reaching the lofty heights of Velocity Frequent Flyer Platinum status requires 1,000 status credits to earn or 800 to retain, plus 8 eligible flight sectors.
