Here is our guide to earning Velocity Points with our global network of airline partners 

First things first. You know how you earn Velocity Points when you fly with Virgin Australia? Well, you can also earn Velocity Points with our 15 airline partners, travelling to over 600 destinations worldwide. The only difference is you earn based on miles flown not dollars spent.# The exact earn rate differs depending on the airline, the fare type you’ve chosen, and whether you’re a Platinum, Gold, Silver or Red Velocity member but we’re here to break it down for you and make sure that you’re earning Velocity Points wherever you can across the globe.


Whether your destination is Seattle, Salt Lake City or Saks Fifth Avenue, you can earn Velocity Points with our partner Delta Air Lines when you book an eligible fare to or within the states. You can book directly with Delta Air Lines on the Virgin Australia website, just make sure you enter your Velocity membership number as part of your booking details.

Fancy a luau instead? Earn Velocity Points with our partner Hawaiian Airlines when you book an eligible fare through their website and include your Velocity membership number in your booking.


If you’re looking at a European vacay but you still want to earn Velocity Points, you can choose between flying on eligible fares with Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

Book directly on or on our partners  website to earn Velocity Points - all you need to do is add your Velocity membership number when asked what loyalty program you’re a part of.

We also have an innovative partnership with KrisFlyer (the loyalty program of Singapore Airlines) where you can transfer your KrisFlyer Points to Velocity. Simply log into your Velocity account and select "Transfer Points – Airlines" in the menu.

Once you’re in Europe, Alitalia offers you the option to earn Velocity Points on eligible fares on their network of transcontinental flights so you can give your Points balance a boost whether you’re sunning yourself in Spain or skiing the Alps in Switzerland.


You can also earn Velocity Points with Singapore Airlines when travelling on eligible fares to Asia (or anywhere on their network) or you can choose to fly HNA Capital Airlines, with Hainan Airlines or Tianjin Airlines on operated flights within or between Australia, New Zealand and Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) or Hong Kong Airlines.

Again, just make sure you use your Velocity membership number when booking to make sure you don’t miss out on Points.


If it’s a safari you’re after, you can earn Velocity Points flying with our partner South African Airways when travelling from Australia to select African destinations such as Cape Town, Johannesburg and even Mauritius. Just make sure that you don’t forget to enter your Velocity membership number when booking your flight! 


If you’re just realising that you missed out on earning Velocity Points with one of our partner airlines, you may still be able to claim them! We’ve put together an easy-to-use guide that shows you everything you need to know and how you may be eligible to claim missing Points for flights you’ve already flown.
