Virgin Australia has today launched their Covid vaccination incentive promotion, labelled VA-X & Win. The airline said the competition is designed to thank vaccinated Australians who have played their part in protecting the community and re-opening the country.

First announced in June, Virgin says the total prize pool is valued at over $150,000 with the major prize making one lucky Australian a Velocity Points millionaire. The full VA-X & Win prize pool is as follows:

  • 1 x 1 million Velocity Points
  • 10 x 100,000 Velocity Points
  • 50 x 10,000 Velocity Points
  • 25 x return Virgin Australia Business Class flights
  • 50 x return Virgin Australia Economy flights
  • 30 x Virgin Australia Lounge memberships
  • 85 x Virgin Australia pyjama sets

Virgin Australia Group CEO, Jayne Hrdlicka said vaccination is Australia’s ticket to freedom.

“Vaccination is our way back to the things we love and the people we miss, and most importantly, it’s the only way we can protect the lives and livelihoods of all Australians,”

“We know how important it is to reach the vaccination thresholds as soon as possible, especially for those people living in New South Wales and Victoria, and we’re proud to play our part in adding to the benefits of getting vaccinated,” said Ms Hrdlicka.

Fully vaccinated Australians have until 31 December 2021 to enter the competition, with winners notified by 13 January 2022. As the registration process does not require proof of vaccination, winners will need to confirm their vaccination status before receiving their prize.
