Status Credits

Status Credits are used to determine your Velocity membership level – Silver, Gold or Platinum. You will earn Status Credits whenever you fly on eligible flights with Virgin Australia and our airline partners. The more you fly and the higher the fare class booked, the more Status Credits you will earn. Just one Business Class trip could see you well on your way to upgrading to a higher level of membership.

As a Platinum or Gold member you will receive outstanding benefits, including access to more than 150 lounges worldwide, Priority Check-in, Priority Boarding and additional baggage allowances. Plus, you can take advantage of a complimentary membership in to the premium tiers of our car hire and accommodation partners, and with Secure Sentinel.
