A few weeks ago, we learned that Velocity Frequent Flyer had extended their status match and status extension promotion from March 28 to May 31 2021.
This meant those with Gold or Platinum status could extend it for another 12 months by just taking 1 single flight.
Additional perks such as bonus points, Economy X upgrades and Business class upgrades for Platinum frequent flyers were also on offer so go check out the details on that here.
Velocity To Offer An Extra 6 Months
As the saying goes: the early bird catches the worm, and today is no different. Those who took up the 1 flight status extension challenge before today will now receive an extra 6 months of status. This by taking 1 flight, you’re set for 18 months of benefits.
The extension will be provided in two parts. Initially, the extension will be until March 31 2022, and you can see this now in your [My Velocity account.
Later this year, Velocity will apply the remaining six-month extension to your account so that your new review date will be September 30 2022. We’ll let you know once this has been done.
