EARN WITH International AIRLINE PARTNERS

Earn Status Credits when you travel in an eligible fare class on our International airline partner operated flights.

Select an airline below to discover how many Status Credits you will receive.

  • 1. Status Credits cannot be earned on all fare classes. Status Credits can only be earned on eligible flights, marketed and operated by Virgin Australia and/or a Velocity airline partner. Status Credits accrual is based on single flight segments that consist of individual flight numbers. An itinerary that involves a change in aircraft but retains the same flight number is considered a single flight segment. An itinerary that consists of a change in flight numbers, even if the same aircraft is used for the entire itinerary, is considered two flight segments. Members travelling on upgraded fares purchased with Points or any other subsidised means of upgrades on Virgin Australia or our partner airlines will earn Status Credits based on original purchased fare class.

    2.  Virgin Australia operated flights sold with an Air Mauritius (MK) flight number are ineligible to earn Status Credits. Status Credits cannot be earned on flights operated by Virgin Australia with an Air Canada (AC) flight number or on flights operated by Air Canada AC with an AC flight number.

    3. On 1 August 2018 Velocity Frequent Flyer announced a new Status Credit earn proposition for Trans Tasman and International Short Haul flights. Prior to 28 October domestic flights as part of an international journey earn at the same rate as international flights. From 28 October for eligible flights members will earn at the domestic rate for their domestic flight and the Trans Tasman and International Short haul rate for their Trans Tasman or International Short Haul flight respectively. Domestic flights as part of an international Long Haul journey will continue to earn at the international long haul rate. 

    4. Trans-Tasman flights: include all flights between Australia and New Zealand. International Short Haul Flights: includes all international flights from Australia to Cook Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu. International Long Haul Flights: includes flights to Hong Kong and Los Angeles. 

    5. Where your Trans-Tasman or International Short Haul journey contains a flight operated by another airline that does not have a VA flight number, then that flight will be ineligible for Status Credit earn.  All other flights in the journey operated by Virgin Australia with a VA flight number will Status Credits per the above tables. Where your Trans-Tasman or International Short Haul journey contains a flight with a VA flight number operated by a Velocity Partner Airline you will earn Status Credits based on your fare class and the number of miles flown for the whole journey, including any flights operated by Virgin Australia.
