Sound the alarm because Virgin Australia is set to give away thousands of free flights to those who have been fully vaccinated.
That’s right, thanks to the Virgin VA-X & Win competition, you could be among the lucky winners of free business class flights and frequent flyer points… if you’ve had the jab, of course.
If you are not yet eligible for a COVID-10 vaccine then never fear, as Virgin has confirmed that the competition won’t begin until they are available to every Aussie adult.
“For simply rolling up your sleeve and getting a COVID-19 vaccination, you could walk away with a share in tens of thousands of dollars of Virgin Australia and Velocity Frequent Flyer prizes, or be the lucky one to become a Velocity Points millionaire,” a spokesperson for Virgin said in a statement.
What is a Velocity Points millionaire, you may ask? Well, it turns out that one person will have a cool one million Velocity points to spend, which means they’ll be able to take a free trip almost anywhere once international borders open, or “fly around Australia seven times between each capital city.”
“What the latest lockdown in Melbourne and the evolving situation in Sydney has taught us, is the sooner we can all get vaccinated, the sooner we can get on with our lives, without the constant fear and uncertainty that come with lockdowns, restrictions and closed borders,” the spokesperson for Virgin said.
They continued: “Most importantly, the sooner all Australians are vaccinated, the sooner our most vulnerable members of society will be protected.”

“We are proud to have served the Australian community in so many ways over the past twenty years. The VA-X & Win competition is just the next instalment of our service, and is our way of helping boost vaccination numbers to protect the lives and livelihoods of all Australians.”
Once the competition eventually opens, anyone who is over 18 and has received both COVID-19 jabs will be able to apply via Virgin’s official website.
May the odds be ever in your favour!
