We knew the Virgin-branded airlines would eventually become FFP partners, we just didn’t know when. The three Virgin-branded carriers, Virgin America, V Australia and Virgin Blue, are now partners and frequent flyer members can earn either Velocity or Elevate points when flying on any of the three carriers. Virgin America Elevate members will be able to redeem points on V Australia and Virgin Blue beginning later this year. Award flights on V Australia will start at 40,000 points and 6,000 points on Virgin Blue. No word yet on when Virgin Atlantic will join the party.
