“Thanks so much again – very much appreciated!”

While this is the first time Virgin Australia Velocity has won a Freddie for Program of the Year, the program won a Freddie in this category in 2009 under its former name, Virgin Blue Velocity. The program is known for its ease of award redemption, which goes straight to the heart of a frequent traveler. Velocity offers last seat availability for additional points and members can pay with a combination of points and cash for flight awards. Award sales and bonus offers are also frequently offered to keep members engaged in the program.
