Virgin Australia: Gifting status credits


Yesterday, Qantas announced the extension of Premium frequent flyers status for another 12 months if they haven’t already re-qualified. Now Virgin Australia comes out with its response to the effect of the COVID-19 crisis on status qualifications for its Premium flyers.

Status Credit gift

Virgin Australia will be gifting Status Credits to all its Silver, Gold and Platinum Velocity Frequent flyers to assist in maintaining their membership tier

Status Credits will be gifted to accounts during the first week of the next three months according to status:

Velocity members should get a personalised email with details about their ‘gift’ in the next two weeks. No need to contact Virgin Australia.

This doesn’t appear quite as generous as a 12-month extension of status that Qantas has offered, but it does go some of the ways to allowing Velocity members to re-qualify.

However with the already announced suspension of all international Virgin Australia services from 30 March until 14 June 2020, and the dramatic cuts to domestic operations, you will be hard-pressed to earn your status from flying.
