Virgin Australia offers free lounge access for over 60s
Are you over 60? Wait for your next flight in style with Virgin Australia’s latest luxury lounge offer
Dealing with the stress and chaos of an airport waiting room is one of the last things you want when you’re waiting for a flight. But if you’re aged over 60 and flying with Virgin Australia over the next two months, you might not have to.
If you’re over 60 and taking a domestic flight on a Monday to Thursday between 11am and 3pm during May and June, you can access Virgin Australia’s luxury airport lounges for free. As well as peace and quiet, you can look forward to a selection of fine wines, free reign over a buffet menu, private bathroom facilities and fresh barista tea and coffee while you wait for your flight. Plus, if you’re flying with anyone under 60, they’re also granted complimentary access so long as your tickets were booked under the same reservation.
Lounge access is available for economy domestic flights at any of the following departure locations:
- Gold Coast
- Alice Springs
Please note that this offer is not valid for the Adelaide and Perth Virgin lounges.
How can I secure my complimentary access?
It’s easy enough; all you need to do is quote SNR260 when you’re making a booking over the phone or select the “Over 60’s Lounge Pass” when booking your trip online before midnight on 16 May 2016. You’ll receive a confirmation email if your application is accepted. When you arrive at the lounge on the day of your flight, you’ll need to provide a copy of your confirmation email and a form of photo ID or your Senior’s card to enter.
While the offer isn’t all-inclusive and is definitely restricted by some of the terms and conditions, it still offers a lot of value if you had a domestic trip planned. You can usually only access Virgin Australia lounges if you’re a Virgin Australia Lounge member or Velocity Platinum or Gold member, or if you’re a guest of such a member and willing to pay $65 entry. So if you are aged over 60 and already planning a domestic trip, this offer could be a great way to enjoy some exclusive offers while saving a few dollars on your next trip.
