Earn Double Status Credits with Virgin Australia


As a Velocity member you will earn Status Credits whenever you fly on eligible fares with Virgin Australia and their network of airline partners, including Air New Zealand, Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Samoa, Virgin America, Hawaiian Airlines, airberlin, South African Airways and Alitalia. Status Credits can also be earned on eligible Any Seat redemptions when travelling with Virgin Australia, and on fares flown as part of Virgin Australia Holidays packages.

Your Status Credits balance for flights is calculated daily, based on the number of Status Credits you have earned in the previous 12 months. Every Status Credit you earn is valid for 12 months, which means your Status Credit balance will not be reset to zero at your Review Date.

Your Status Credits, together with your Eligible Sector balance, will be used to determine the level of Frequent Flyer membership that you qualify for.



For a limited time, you can take off with double Status Credits when you book an eligible Virgin Australia flight*.
