Virgin Australia and Etihad Airways are celebrating their 10th anniversary of partnership (or perhaps Etihad’s stake in Virgin Australia).
Velocity members can earn up to 15,500 bonus points for two Etihad sectors flown between October 23 – March 31, 2020, if booked October 8 – 22.
You can access this offer on Etihad’s website here.
You need to fly a minimum of two sectors in business or first to earn 15,500 bonus points. Members that fly in an economy can earn 7,800 bonus points for two segments. These miles are in addition to the base miles you usually earn on Virgin’s program for Etihad flights.
Some bonus miles for Virgin Australia Velocity program members that fly on Etihad by the end of March 2020 if they can book by October 22.
Virgin Australia must be the last remaining Etihad Equity Alliance airlines and the only one that hasn’t folded.
