Current offer: earn 10,000 bonus Velocity points on flights to Hong Kong
This promotion is valid for travel on both Virgin Australia’s existing Melbourne – Hong Kong and new Sydney – Hong Kong services (launching 2 July).
An eligible flight is a Virgin Australia-operated and -marketed flight between Melbourne and Hong Kong for travel between 17 April 2018 and 14 March 2019 inclusive or Sydney and Hong Kong for travel between 2 July 2018 and 14 March 2019 inclusive.
You must activate the offer and book your flight between 17 April and 1 May 2018 inclusive.
You will earn 5,000 bonus points for a one-way flight or 10,000 points for a return flight (on top of your regular earn rate). This promotion applies to both Economy and Business Class tickets.
For example, on most sale Economy Class fares, you earn just over 6,200 Velocity points for a return flight from New Zealand to Hong Kong via Sydney or Melbourne, meaning that with this promotion, you almost triple your earn rate, and will have enough points to get yourself a one-way Business Class redemption between Sydney and Melbourne (15,500 points).
