V Australia takes off in style

Velocity is happy to announce a new international Airline Partner! On Friday, February 27, 2009 Virgin Blue’s international airline, V Australia, took to the skies with the first commercial service departing from Sydney, Australia.

Velocity Members now have the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles and earn Velocity Points! See how many Points you can earn on a V Australia flight. Or, why not redeem your hard earned Points? Check out how many Points you need to get there today.

Plus, V Australia gives Members another way to rack up Status Credits – that means you’ll be on your way to enjoying the benefits of Silver or Gold Membership in no time. In fact, if you’re a Red Velocity Member and fly Sydney to L.A. return in V Australia’s International Business Class, you’ll earn enough Status Credits to upgrade to Silver Membership, and enough Points for two return Reward Seats~ between Sydney and Brisbane, or Sydney and Melbourne – you’ll only have to pay the taxes! See how many Velocity Points you can earn on your V Australia flight.


We think V Australia is pretty special. A great deal of thought and consideration has gone in to every detail of the new airline to raise the standard of trans-Pacific travel, by offering a level of style, comfort, affordability and of course, more ways to earn or redeem your Velocity Points.

The three class, boutique style airline offers 33 Business Class lie-flat beds, 40 Premium Economy club seats and 288 economy seats.  Onboard the brand new 777-300ER aircraft, the suite of in-flight products includes two in-flight bars and personal state-of-the-art seat back entertainment with user friendly touch screen options and seat to seat 'chat' or competition connectivity.

V Australia is the only carrier to operate the economically and environmentally efficient Boeing 777 aircraft on the long haul trans-Pacific route.
