Virgin Australia has today opened their VA-X & Win competition to thank COVID-19 vaccinated Australians who have played their part in protecting the community and re-opening the country, with a chance to win hundreds of prizes.

The total competition prize pool is valued at more than $150,000 with the major prize making one lucky Australian a Velocity Frequent Flyer Points millionaire.

Other prizes include Business Class flights, Virgin Australia Lounge memberships and dozens of the airline’s popular pyjama sets.

How to enter in three easy steps

  • Receive both doses of a COVID-19 approved vaccine (in consultation with a health practitioner);
  • Visit virginaustralia.com/vaxandwin; and
  • Enter your name, email address and Velocity Frequent Flyer member number in the entry fields by midnight 31 December 2021.

To coincide with the opening of the competition, Virgin Australia has released a new VA-X & Win marketing campaign, poking a bit of fun at the current constraints on the nation.

The videos will be housed on Virgin Australia social media channels before being aired on the 7 Network during the broadcast of the AFL Grand Final on 25 September 2021. Virgin Australia is the official airline of the league.

Virgin Australia Group CEO and Managing Director, Jayne Hrdlicka said vaccination is Australia’s ticket to freedom.

“Vaccination is our way back to the things we love and the people we miss, and most importantly, it’s the only way we can protect the lives and livelihoods of all Australians,” said Ms Hrdlicka.

“We are all in this together and the sooner we are vaccinated to the thresholds required by government, the sooner we can return to a quality way of life that includes travelling freely within our own country and abroad.

“We are offering an opportunity for every fully vaccinated Australian aged 18 and over to enter the Virgin Australia VA-X & Win competition, for simply rolling up their sleeve, getting vaccinated and protecting their community and the future of our country.

Virgin Australia employee vaccination promotion

Virgin Australia has also opened a promotion today for vaccinated employees who get the jab before 15 November 2021. Incentives include a holiday to Hamilton Island, additional annual leave, Business Class flights and Lounge memberships.

A recent survey of Virgin Australia team members found that over 75 per cent of the frontline workforce have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, with another 9 per cent registered for vaccination*.

“We know how important it is to reach the vaccination thresholds as soon as possible, especially for those people living in New South Wales and Victoria, and we’re proud to play our part in adding to the benefits of getting vaccinated.  We all have a role to play in ensuring our country is safe and we can return to our basic freedoms and all the jobs and prosperity that come with that,” said Ms Hrdlicka.

“For 21 years, we have used our voice for good in the community and this is just another element of our service,” she said.
