Our pledge to members

In late 2020, we raised the stakes with even more rewards and benefits for our Gold and Platinum Status members. We also offered access to our Discover Gold Status trial for eligible frequent flyer members of oneworld© partner airlines, Emirates and Air New Zealand​ to fast track to Velocity elite membership.

With state and territory borders reopening and optimism for travel returning, we’re making it even easier for you to enjoy your Status Rewards. We’ve made it even easier to secure your tier membership extension and given more time to enjoy your Economy X seating benefit or your Business class upgrade benefit. We have also added an extra 2 months* to the Discover Gold membership.

The more you fly, the better it gets

Status Rewards for our existing Gold and Platinum Status members start when you book an Eligible Flight by 28 March 2021 for travel from 7 December 2020.

Unlock Status Rewards the more you fly



    • Eligible Gold and Platinum Velocity Members who booked an eligible flight with us by 28 March 2021 will now have their status locked in for up to 18 months.

      Eligible members have been awarded the Status extension on 31 March 2021

      Exclusions apply. See Terms and Conditions.

You must have added your Velocity number to your booking to be considered for these Status Rewards. You could be eligible for all 3 Status Rewards, but in some instances, you may only be eligible for one or two.

An Eligible Flight is a Virgin Australia marketed and booked by 28 March 2021 for travel from 7 December 2020 (we assess this on an individual member basis) and include Reward Seat bookings. Codeshare services marketed or operated by partner airlines are not eligible for this offer.
