2. Virgin Australia to launch new elite VIP tier.

Virgin Australia will reveal the new shape of its rebooted The Club VIP program on 20 April 2022, transforming the exclusive invitation-only scheme into a drawcard for companies with a high travel spend.

The move will shift The Club, created by former Virgin Australia CEO John Borghetti as a foil to the Qantas Chairman's Lounge, onto a more commercial footing which is both a better fit with Virgin's place in the market and will help it compete against Qantas for the business and corporate market.

Since March 2020, Qantas has offered members a range of support options to retain their tier including status extensions, Status Credit boosts and the ability to earn them on the ground. They are now extending that support even further.
