We’ve just announced two very special offers to our Flying Club members. For a limited time only, those making new bookings will enjoy 50% more Virgin Points, and we’re giving away enhanced Flying Club status matches for British Airways Executive Club members with Virgin Atlantic bookings.
Whether you’re a casual collector or one of our fanatical points accumulating super travellers, being a member of our Flying Club will lead to some great rewards and more fulfilling travel. In short, if you’re not a member of our Flying Club or collecting our Virgin Points, then you’re missing out on discounts, perks, flights, upgrades and loads more fabulous stuff. Just head over to our Flying Club pages to get a feel for all the different ways you can earn and spend miles. There’s always something new going in the club with plenty of news and offers to keep you excited and tips to help you get the most from the scheme.
We’re kickstarting the New Year for our Flying Club members by boosting the number of Virgin Points and Tier Points our Flying Club members can earn.
For a limited time only, if you make a new booking, you’ll enjoy 50% more Virgin Points, allowing you to unlock further reward flights, cabin upgrades and partner benefits, both in the air and on the ground.
Moreover, you’ll also receive 50% bonus tier points, for flights booked across the Virgin Atlantic network, helping you achieve that lucrative status upgrade, or assist you in maintaining your current tier position. This tier offer is applicable for direct new revenue flights and Reward Flights.
You can take advantage of these initiatives if you’re a member of our Flying Club. They are available for new bookings made before 2nd February, applicable on all Virgin Atlantic operated flights, departing between the 8th January and the 31st December 2021.
Suppose you’re a British Airways Executive Club member and have a future ticket, booked with us on or before 28th February 2021. In that case, we’re offering you an industry leading opportunity. We’ll provide a Flying Club status match for Bronze – Gold British Airways Executive Club members for each member booking. This will open up a world of upgrades, lounge access and reward flights, plus a wealth of perks and offers with numerous partners in the air and on the ground.
This enhanced offer, which builds on our current status match programme, means
-British Airways Executive Club Bronze members can earn Flying Club Silver status with any Premium or Upper Class booking.
-British Airways Executive Club Silver members can become Flying Club Silver status with a ticket booked in any cabin.
-British Airways Executive Club Gold members will receive Flying Club Gold status with a ticket booked in any cabin – a step up from the airline’s current status match programme, which requires Gold Card members to book flights in either Premium or Upper Class.
The offer is available for a limited time only, from today until 28th February 2021. To receive the benefit you simply need to visit https://virg.in/statusmatch and provide proof of your current British Airways status and a booking reference for your upcoming Virgin Atlantic flight. This initiative is available for any new bookings, along with any bookings made before the sale period started.
Our Flying Club offers a range of far reaching benefits, across its three tiers. Both Silver and Gold status offer a collection of luxurious touches, including Premium or Upper Class check in, priority boarding and anytime seat assignment. Gold Card members also enjoy access to Virgin Atlantic and Delta’s range of global lounges, every time they fly, no matter which cabin they travel in. Everyone flying with Virgin Atlantic can take advantage of the airline’s expansive route network with partners Delta, Air France & KLM, and its youngest, greenest fleet to date, including the recently introduced Airbus A350.
As well as earning Virgin Points on every flight with us, or one of our partners, you can accrue them in lots of different ways including on your weekly shop or when buying train tickets or visiting your favourite shops such as John Lewis, iTunes, Nike Store and Apple. Almost everything you buy online can also earn you points. You can top up your Virgin Points with Points Booster, by using our credit card or one of our regular special offers. Once you’ve earned your points, you can look forward to spending them on something fabulous like upgrades, treats and flights to fantastic destinations.
“I’m delighted that by simply buying a ticket, we are making our Virgin Atlantic Flying Club benefits accessible to even more passengers. I have no doubt customers will be thrilled by the vast array of advantages it provides, both in the air and on the ground, such as priority boarding and access to our award-winning Clubhouses” said Siobhan Fitzpatrick, our Chief Digital and Marketing Officer. “We’re committed to rewarding those who choose to fly with Virgin Atlantic and want all of our customers to make the most of their experience when travelling with us. I’d urge everyone to keep an eye on our latest Flying Club updates where there’s set to be some exciting changes, including a pair of Clubhouse vouchers for our Silver members, later this year.”
Those customers who are not a member of British Airways Executive Club need not worry, as we’ll continue to run our status match programme for other airline rewards schemes in parallel with this exciting new sale fare offer.
