Flying Club changes in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

What's new?

Virgin Atlantic extends flexibility for Flying Club members

We’re pleased to let you know that we’re further extending our measures to protect your measures and rewards.

We recognise that travel is still restricted and to give you peace of mind we are extending all memberships again by another 3 months.  This means you’ll have even longer to build up your Tier Points to retain or earn status.

Flying Club members who have any valid companion, upgrade or Clubhouse access vouchers will have them automatically extended as well, to a total of 18 months. See terms for more details.

As before, all of these changes will be applied to your account automatically so there is no need for you to do anything or contact us.


Virgin Wines

More wine? Why not! Or should that be ‘wine not’? Whether your tipple is fresh and fruity or crisp and dry, Virgin Wines has just what you’re looking for. What’s more, our Virgin Wines Gift Vouchers now start at only 10,000 Virgin Points! Cheers to a good bottle, for less! T&Cs apply.


Virgin Experience Days

Save yourself a bundle and treat yourself to that ‘something’ you’ve always wanted to do. Bag yourself a Virgin Experience Days voucher starting from just 2,000 Virgin Points and make yourself feel fabulous, with everything from floating in a hot air balloon to flying round a racetrack in a Ferrari. T&Cs apply.





Exciting changes to your miles

As of 24th September 2020, Flying Club miles will never expire. They’ll also have a new name - Virgin Points. This change means that you can build up your Virgin Points balance for as long as you want, and enjoy rewards at your leisure – whenever you’re ready.

Frequently asked questions



Tier status extension

To offer flexibility to our Silver and Gold Flying Club members, the expiry date of your membership year has been extended by 12 months for this current membership year.^

Reward voucher extension

Flying Club members who have any valid companion, upgrade or Clubhouse access vouchers will have them automatically extended by 12 months.^

Your vouchers, more options

We’ve made some changes to our vouchers to make them simpler and more rewarding. Whether you’ve got upgrade, companion or Clubhouse vouchers, and whether you’ve earned them through your tier status or via your credit card, these improvements will allow you to enjoy your well-earned benefits even more easily.

  • Companion vouchers can now be used in conjunction with any ticket in any booking class and can be used in any cabin of travel (excluding Economy Light and Economy Delight) regardless of your tier status. Your companions can’t be booked into a higher cabin than you.
  • If you have earned your companion voucher through one of our credit cards, you can now book your companion into any cabin regardless of what tier status you hold. If you are Silver or Gold when you make the booking, the companion reward seat will be zero points. If you are Red when you make the booking, the companion seat will be zero point in Economy Classic and Premium, or a 50% reduction in the points needed for Upper.

  • Upgrade vouchers can now be used in conjunction with any ticket in any booking class including reward flights (but excluding Economy Light), for a one cabin upgrade for a return flight.
  • Clubhouse vouchers are now valid for all flights booked on Virgin Atlantic, Delta, Air France and KLM when flying internationally.

Tier points on reward flights

We believe you should be rewarded every single time you choose to fly with Virgin Atlantic. That’s why we will now be giving you tier points on every flight – including reward flights. From 1st September 2020, reward flights will be even more rewarding as you’ll receive the same tier points as if you were booking with money, making it even easier to progress to Gold and Silver status. So even if you have already booked your redemption, if your flight date is after the 1st September you will earn tier points.

For redemptions in Economy (A class) will earn 25 tier points (one-way)

For redemptions in Premium (P class) will earn 50 tier points (one-way)

For redemptions in Upper (G class) will earn 100 tier points (one-way)
