Virgin Australia’s New Partnership Lets Flyers Earn Points at the Gym


A new partnership between Virgin Australia and Jetts Fitness will allow frequent flyers to earn points through frequent workouts.

How would you like to earn frequent flyer points for working out? Virgin Australia is offering its customers the opportunity to do just that, thanks to a new partnership with an Australian gym franchise.

Australian Business Traveler reports the airline’s new partnership with Jetts Fitness will allow flyers to earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Points when they sign up for a membership. In addition to earning two points for every $1 spent on membership fees, new members can earn up to 3,500 bonus points by signing up for a pre-paid annual membership. As motivation to work out, flyers can earn an additional 60 Velocity points when they visit the gym at least five times per month on five different days.

“Imagine earning bonus Velocity Frequent Flyer Points just for going to the gym regularly,” Virgin Australia wrote on its blog. “From [October 13], this added incentive to get fit is a reality.”

In addition to offering points for signing up to go to the gym, flyers can also use their Velocity Points to pay for gym memberships. Those that elect to use their points to pay for membership can still collect the 60 point bonus for frequenting the Jetts gym of their choice. There’s also an option for executive flyers wanting to open up a Jetts franchise of their own. Elite flyers who purchase and open a franchise can earn 500,000 Velocity Points.

Virgin Australia’s new program is similar to United Airlines’ partnership with GlobalFit, which offers flyers 2,000 MileagePlus Points for joining a GlobalFit gym.

Flyers interested in taking advantage of Virgin Australia’s new partnership can only earn the sign-up bonus on new Jetts memberships for a limited time. The first sign-up window runs from now through November 30, and the second sign-up window will run from January 1, 2015, through February 28, 2015.
