Virgin Australia’s new baggage allowances

Virgin Australia’s new checked luggage rules, recently introduced alongside the airline’s move to the Sabre booking system, could catch a few travellers unaware.

The following are the breakdown courtesy of Australian Business Traveller.

Velocity Platinum

The big change here is the economy allowance: a reduction when flying on the cheapest tickets, and needing to spread weight over more bags when on Saver or Flexi fares.

 

Velocity Gold

Gold members should also focus on economy fares: again, you have less weight when buying the cheapest fares, but two smaller bags instead of one large bag on Saver or Flexi tickets.

 

Velocity Silver

Good news for Silvers: you get an extra bag when on a Saver or Flexi fare.

 

Velocity Red and non-Velocity members

There’s no real change for Red members: the only difference is that Saver Lite is the new fare without bags, while Saver is the new cheaper fare with a bag.

Passengers without Velocity Frequent Flyer status have the same allowances as Velocity Red members.
