Virgin Australia extends Status Credits on Reward flights offer

Virgin Australia has extended its long-running Bonus Status Credits offers yet again, with Velocity members now able to earn Status Credits on Reward seats until 31 July 2022.

In addition, they’ve also lengthened the travel period to earn Bonus Status Credits by a few extra days until 30 June 2022, meaning there’s a little more time to lock in your next flight.

The additional helping of Status Credits will of course fast-track a frequent flyer's trajectory to Velocity Silver, Gold or Platinum, locking in a raft of practical benefits, from bonus points to lounge access once you reach the glittering heights of Gold and Platinum.

So what are the details?

  • Bonus Double Status Credits are available on all domestic, trans-Tasman and international short haul Virgin Australia flights and fares, except for the cheapest Getaway fares
  • The offer applies to all Virgin Australia operated flights completed by midnight (AEST) on Monday 30 June 2022 
  • Status Credits on Reward flights are available for Velocity members who complete a flight on a Reward seat until 31 July 2022

Rival Qantas also offers double status credits at various times of the year.
