Virgin Atlantic and V Australia have joined forces in a new loyalty programme agreement which allows travellers to earn miles when flying on the networks of both airlines.

The reciprocal frequent flyer agreement enables Virgin Atlantics Flying Club Members and V Australias Velocity Members to earn Velocity Points or Flying ClubMiles on both V Australia and Virgin Atlantic flights.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, "This is obviously a natural fit for both V Australia and Virgin Atlantic and great news for our guests who now have the ability to accrue Points or Miles regardless of which network they are flying on.

"Through this arrangement we are able to further reward those who prefer to fly with and remain loyal to Virgin branded airlines and we hope this gives our Guests added incentive to do so."

There are two Virgin Round The World Fares available Virgin Global East and Virgin Global West.

 The Virgin Global East option takes passengers from Heathrow to Hong Kong and then onto Sydney with Virgin Atlantic, from Sydney to Los Angeles with V Australia, returning from Los Angeles to London with Virgin Atlantic.

 The Virgin Global West option takes passengers from London Heathrow to Los Angeles with Virgin Atlantic, then onto Sydney with V Australia, from Sydney to Hong Kong and then back to London with Virgin Atlantic.

The two airlines are currently working on plans to introduce reciprocal mileage redemption.

This joint venture is in addition to the existing frequent flyer partnership between Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Blue which was launched in 2008.
