Earn Velocity Points with Melbourne’s SkyBus

Sally McMullen 6 December 2016 NEWS


Give your Velocity Points balance a boost before you even get on the plane.

Virgin Australia's Velocity Frequent Flyer program has announced that loyalty members can now earn frequent flyer points on SkyBus trips travelling to and from Melbourne Airport. You'll collect 100 Velocity Points for a one-way adult ticket and 250 Velocity Points on a return trip fare. If you have several trips planned, you could earn 500 Velocity Points for a five-trip ticket and 1,000 points if you purchase a 10-trip ticket.

To celebrate the new way to earn points, SkyBus is offering double the points on all trips until February 28 2017. All you need to do is enter your Velocity Frequent Flyer membership number when you purchase tickets on the SkyBus website or by swiping your Velocity card when buying your tickets at SkyBus ticket booths. Remember that the first and last name entered on the ticket purchase must match the Velocity Frequent Flyer account name to collect the points.

You can compare how many Velocity Points you could earn regularly and during the bonus points promotional period below.

Ticket type Melbourne City Express fares Velocity Points Double points offer

Family 1 One way 100 200
Round trip 250 500
Family 2 One way 250 500

If you want to get the most out your next airport transit bus trip, remember that you can only earn Velocity Points on the SkyBus service between Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport and Melbourne city's CBD. So, unfortunately, you won't collect Velocity Points on other routes such as the St Kilda Express.
