The airline states that the ability to book Velocity Reward Seats in Singapore Airlines’ premium cabins, along with the ability to transfer points between KrisFlyer and Velocity, is expected to resume shortly – though no firm date has been provided just yet.

Velocity Frequent Flyer has continued to expand its international partner airline offering since November 2021, when Virgin Atlantic, Air Canada, Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, Hawaiian Airlines and South African Airways, re-opened Reward Seats to Velocity members.

Today’s news follows the announcement that Virgin Australia and Velocity Frequent Flyer will partner with United Airlines from April 2022, tripling the number of direct U.S. cities travellers can reach from Australian ports, while offering Velocity members more ways to earn Points, Status Credits and receive tier benefits when travelling on United’s expansive services.

Virgin Australia says that hundreds of millions of Velocity Points have been redeemed on international flights since November 2021, when Velocity re-opened international redemption bookings to members. A recent survey conducted by Velocity Frequent Flyer found that 39 percent of members were planning to travel internationally within the next 12 months.
