Virgin Atlantic extends Flying Club status again

Virgin Atlantic has again extended the timeframe for customers to maintain their Flying Club tier status.

Gold and Silver members will receive an additional six months to keep their tier status, in recognition of the continued impact of the pandemic, particularly on routes to the US.

It marks the fifth extension for Flying Club members throughout the pandemic and means that members will have been given an extra two years to maintain tier status and redeem benefits.

In addition to tier extensions, Companion, Upgrade or Clubhouse vouchers will also be extended further.

Changes have been automatically applied to members’ accounts.

Siobhan Fitzpatrick, chief digital and marketing officer at Virgin Atlantic, said: “With travel to the US still facing restrictions, we wanted to offer continued flexibility as our customers make plans to travel in 2021 and beyond.

“It’s now essential that the reopening of the transatlantic corridor is not delayed any further.

“President Biden has a clear opportunity to reciprocate and safely ease restrictions for fully vaccinated UK citizens, helping loved ones to reunite and businesses to restore ties with the US, our largest trading partner.”
