Virgin Australia has every reason to be proud of their amazing winning streak.

The airline’s award-winning loyalty program, Velocity Frequent Flyer, was recently recognised at the 2018 Freddie Awards, which is widely considered to be one of the most distinguished honours for travel loyalty programs.

Velocity took out four categories in the Middle East, Asia and Oceania region, including Best Elite Program, Best Customer Service and Best Redemption Ability (Airline).

Perhaps most importantly, Velocity also took out Airline Program of the Year for the sixth time running.

After launching in 2006 Virgin Australia’s Velocity has already amassed seven million members.
