Virgin has revealed a major overhaul of its Flying Club loyalty scheme which it says will make it easier to earn reward flights and upgrades.
The loyalty programme, part of the newly created Virgin Group Loyalty Company, will allow collectors to earn and spend Flying Club miles across Virgin-branded companies from next year.
As the new scheme is still in its infancy, Virgin was unable to tell us the full details or provide a likely launch date other than at some point in 2019. But in theory you might be able to earn miles you can put towards a Virgin Trains journey or even a discount off its Virgin Media broadband services.
Currently, Flying Club miles can be earned by spending on a Virgin Atlantic Reward credit card, opening a Flying Club savings account for a year, flying Virgin Atlantic or spending with various other partners. These can be used on reward flights, upgrades and companion tickets (for more, see below).
