Virgin Australia Group Chief Commercial Officer, Dave Emerson, has today announced the re-opening of premium Club lounges in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, by the end of March 2022.
“As the nation’s vaccination rates increase, so too will our opportunities to travel more freely, and we are working hard to be in prime position for when that day comes. One important element of planning for the future is making sure we have the right product for our customers, and therefore we have recently undertaken an in-depth review of our Club loyalty program,” said Mr Emerson.
“As part of the review, we asked a group of our most frequent flyers what they valued about The Club loyalty program and we’ve been blown away by the passion and enthusiasm they have for the program and our wonderful airline.
“The deep appreciation for the Virgin Australia personalised service and the joy they get from travelling through our exclusive and premium lounges has been humbling, and are a key reason why many of our Club members choose to fly with us.
“Overwhelmingly, 95 per cent of these frequent flyers said they would recommend the Club loyalty program to their friends or colleagues and that really demonstrates just how important the program is in our business eco-system going forward, particularly with our corporate and government clients.
“As Australia’s most loved airline, we are committed to listening to our customers. Therefore, we are going to re-open premium lounges in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane by the end of the first quarter of 2022, when we expect that business travel demand will have recovered.
