How many miles will you earn on Virgin Atlantic flights?

As a Flying Club member you'll earn a percentage of the base flown miles (this is the number of miles you'll actually fly) on all Virgin Atlantic flights* depending what ticket you have. Make sense? See below for the percentages and how they work.

*Purchased tickets only. Please check your Flying Club number has been added to your booking to ensure you receive the miles. You can do this either when you book your flight or it can be added anytime before you fly in My booking.

Alert! Booked your ticket before 17 March?

If you've booked a ticket before the 17 March 2018, the amount of miles you'll earn won't change from when your ticket was purchased. You can check how many miles you'll earn by booking class here:
