Virgin Australia and American Express just launched an interesting promotion which runs until the end of the month. Amex Velocity card members are offered up to 30% off selected domestic flights, and 25% off selected international Virgin Australia operated flights. The deal covers ticket in economy, premium economy and business class.

Unfortunately, Virgin Australia doesn’t specify the eligible routes, but from the available fare types, we know for sure that LAX, HKG and Trans-Tasman fares are included.

The best way is to play around with the fares and see if you get a discounted ticket.

You know you’re getting a discount when you see the following icon above the price:
