According to eTNW, South African Airways and Virgin Australia have announced a reciprocal frequent flyer agreement giving Velocity Frequent Flyer and Voyager members the ability to earn and redeem points as well as enjoy certain benefits across both airlines’ networks. 

From early next year, Velocity members will be eligible to earn Velocity points and status credits on all SAA-operated services, including Airlink and SA Express, while Voyager members will be able to earn miles on all Virgin Australia-operated services – domestic, short-haul and long-haul international routes. 

Velocity members will be able to use their points to purchase reward seats on SAA flights in Economy or Business Class, while Voyager members can do the same across Virgin Australia’s network in Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class. 

“This is an extension of the bilateral codeshare agreement Virgin Australia launched with South African Airways in October this year,” said Velocity Frequent Flyer CEO, Neil Thompson. “Having the ability to earn and redeem points as well as enjoy a number of premium services like priority check-in, priority boarding and lounge access with SAA is an important benefit for our members.”
