Virgin Australia means business with this latest offer – we’re talking huge sign-up bonuses, double points and status matches.

Right now, new Virgin Australia Business Flyer members can earn up to a whopping 150,000 bonus Velocity Points for their business.

Simply join before 31 March 2023 and spend upwards of $5,000 within your first three months to earn your share of mega bonus points.

Not expecting to fly for business any time soon? You can still earn 2,500 Velocity Points just for becoming a member, so it’s still worth jumping on board this promotion.

Plus, Virgin Australia Business Flyer is offering double points for your first flight and a status match from another airline!

Double trouble: Earn 2X points on your first flight

Regardless of the spend, new Business Flyer members will earn double Velocity Points on their first flight.

Simply book an eligible flight before 31 March 2023 and your bonus points will touch down after you do.

Note that an eligible flight is any one-way domestic or short haul international flight marketed and operated by Virgin Australia (codeshare services won’t count towards the promotion).

You’ll need to book through the Virgin Australia website and enter your ABN at the time of booking.

All the standard Virgin Australia Business Flyer Terms and Conditions apply, so be sure to check them out as well.

Stack offers: Status match

There’s also the option to double dip by stacking the bonus points offer with a sneaky status match.

Frequent flyer members of airlines which are not partners of Velocity Frequent Flyer, and currently hold the equivalent of Velocity Silver status or higher are eligible to apply for a Velocity status match.

To be eligible for a status match, you’ll need to be an existing Velocity member and complete an email application with the following:

  1. your name and Velocity membership number
  2. a copy of the airline/frequent flyer program membership card stating your name and current equivalent status to the Velocity Silver status (or higher)
  3. your Virgin Australia Business Flyer member business name and ABN.

Status match applications must be sent to [email protected] by 31 March 2023 – this effort is well worth a year of elite benefits if you ask us!

You’ll also need to make sure you send the application from the email address that is currently linked to your Velocity account.

Note that it may take up to four weeks to receive the status match after satisfying the eligibility criteria. You can check out all the status terms and conditions here.

Summary: Now is the time to join

Virgin Australia appears to be upping the ante on its Business Flyer offerings.

Recently, we saw the program enhance benefits for tiered members as it continues to grow in the right direction and establish itself as a match for Qantas Business Rewards.

As business travel rebounds, it makes more sense than ever to leverage a loyalty program – especially one that is offering a stack of bonus points for doing so.
