Velocity Frequent Flyer accounts and point transfers

Earning Velocity Frequent Flyer Points

  • Now that Virgin Australia is in voluntary administration what does that mean for my Velocity Points?

    Although Velocity Frequent Flyer is owned by the Virgin Australia Group, it is a separate company and it is not in administration.
     

    That means Velocity is still operating and you can continue to earn Velocity Points, however, Velocity Frequent Flyer have made the decision to pause all redemptions for an initial period of four weeks from 21 April 2020. This means you won’t be able to redeem your Velocity Points during the pause. For information on your points and updates on the Velocity Frequent Flyer program, you can go to www.velocityfrequentflyer.com.  

     

    Please note: Any changes will be at the discretion of Virgin Australia and Velocity Frequent Flyer and cannot be determined by BOQ Specialist.

  • Will my BOQ Specialist Velocity credit card or Everyday Plus account continue to operate?
