Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Red have unveiled an exclusive promotion for travellers seeking transatlantic adventures. With this latest offer, members can now enjoy a remarkable 50% reduction in the number of Virgin points required to redeem reward seats on transatlantic routes.

Economy redemptions offer unbeatable value, with examples such as a mere 10,000 points needed for a round trip between London Heathrow and New York, down from the usual 20,000 points. Similarly, flights to enticing destinations like Las Vegas and Los Angeles can now be booked for just 15,000 points, a significant drop from the standard 30,000 points.

Act fast, as this offer is valid for reward seats booked by March 20, with travel permitted until June 30, 2024. The discount applies across economy, Premium, and Upper Class cabins, encompassing all Virgin Atlantic-operated routes between the UK and US. Please note that taxes, fees, and other carrier-imposed surcharges remain payable in full on redemptions.

For those looking to bolster their Virgin Points balances, there’s an additional incentive available. Until March 31, members can enjoy a bonus of up to 70% when purchasing points. The bonus scales from 20% for purchases between 5,000 and 24,000 points, up to an impressive 70% for those acquiring between 125,000 and 200,000 points.

In another exciting development, Virgin Atlantic has introduced a new perk for entry-level members of its Flying Club frequent flyer program. Red tier members will now enjoy priority boarding ahead of other Economy Classic and Economy Light passengers on any Virgin Atlantic-operated service across the airline’s global network.

Andrea Burchett, Chief Loyalty Officer and Managing Director for Virgin Red, expressed her enthusiasm for the offer, stating: “We’re thrilled to present our members with one of our most compelling reward seat sales yet, featuring an incredible 50% points reduction. Whether you’re seeking new adventures or luxurious relaxation, seize the opportunity to save both money and points on your next holiday with Virgin Atlantic.”
