We have made it easier to move between Flying Club Tiers by reducing the number of Tier Points required. We have pulled together some common questions and answers about this that we think you might find useful.
Who does this change apply to?
This change applies to all Flying club members.
What is the change?
When your status extension ends on 31st March 2022, we will be reducing the number of Tier Points you need to upgrade or renew your Flying Club Status.
To earn or renew Silver status you will need 300 Tier Points instead of 400.
To earn or renew Gold status you will need 800 Tier Points instead of 1000.
This reduction will remain in place for 12 months from 01st April 2022 – 31st March 2023 so you have plenty of time to super charge your status.
When does the reduced tier point threshold apply?
It will apply for 12 months from 1st April 2022 to 31st March 2023.
Is this a permanent change?
We are always looking at ways to look after our Flying Club members. The world is slowly opening up again and we recognise that for the next year, some members may not be travelling quite as much and so wanted to ensure that Flying Club is still as rewarding as ever.
When will my account status change?
If you attain the 300/800 required tier points for Silver and Gold during the status extension period, your account will be upgraded by the end of April 2022.
After 1st April 2022, upgrades between tiers will be applied on the date the qualifying Tier Points reach your account.
For renewals, new status will be applied at the end of your membership year.
Can I benefit from this to move between Red -Silver & Silver - Gold during the reduced threshold time frame?
Yes, absolutely. We hope that as many members as possible will be able to fly and take advantage of it being easier to move between tiers.
Do all the Tier Points I earn count towards me moving between tiers?
I have booked a Virgin Holiday, when will I receive my tier points for this?
Virgin Holidays Tier Points will be credited to your account within 7 days of completing travel. These Tier Points will count towards your next renewal period, as long as they are credited before the reduced threshold period ends.
I have already earned 300 /800 Tier Points, When will my account be upgraded?
If you have already earned the required Ter Points prior to 01st April 2022 your account status will be changed by the end of April 2022.
How long after earning required Tier Points will it take for my status to change?
Upgrades between tiers will be completed when the required amount of Tier Points have been earned.
For status renewals, this will be applied at the end of your membership year.
