It is bonus miles galore when you fly with Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. The company has recently launched their most elaborate and lucrative Flying Club offer ever. As a part of this offer, travelers flying a roundtrip will get 50% bonus miles in addition to what they currently earn. But that’s not all. The next time you fly a roundtrip you get a whopping 100% additional bonus miles. Those who are already Flying Club members will be overjoyed to hear that the Flying Club offer will also encompass tier points which when accumulated will ensure a move from the existing tier to the Silver or Gold tier. Tier points will accumulate like this. Say a flyer traveling to London normally gets 8 tier points. As a part of this offer he will now get an additional 50% bonus tier points; i.e., he will get a total of 12 tier points, along with the 50% bonus miles. The second time he travels, he will get a total of 16 tier points and 100% bonus miles.
A membership for Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club now makes great sense and for those who are not yet a member, it is easy to join by login into their rewards page. Existing members can also register for the offer. Silver membership only needs 15 points and if one makes frequent round trips then it is certainly within reach. The benefits of a Silver membership is immense, one can get an additional 50% bonus miles to boot every time he flies with Virgin Atlantic. Additional benefits include priority check-in and a better positioning on wait-lists. Gold status needs one to score 40 tier points in a period of 12 months. That gives an additional 100% bonus miles in addition to the above miles. In addition to that, one will get upper class check-in and priority boarding every time he flies with Virgin Atlantic to go with the use of dedicated fast security clearance channel in London, an additional luggage piece irrespective of which class one is booked into, Clubhouse access for the whole group traveling and a Silver status for one member of the family, among many other advantages.
Announcing the offer, Virgin Atlantic’s Loyalty Communications Manager Joy De Bach found it hard to hide his excitement when he said that this is the best offer that Virgin Atlantic has ever offered to its customers. He adds, this is the best time for existing Virgin loyalists to really cash in on their bonus miles and tier points, but at the same time he also asserts that new travelers are also going to find this offer lucrative enough to change loyalty and start flying with them.
