Virgin Atlantic is back with another sale through which you can book an award flight and save 40% on the number of Virgin Points required for flights through December 31, 2024.

This means you can fly to London (LHR) from Boston (BOS) for 6,000 miles, from Tampa (TPA) for 7,500 miles, or even Las Vegas (LAS) for 9,000 miles!

There are a few restrictions to be aware of, which we’ll detail below. However, you’ll want to book soon, as this offer is only available for a limited time.

Let’s take a look at the sale and see whether it makes sense for you.

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club 40% Off Promo Details

This latest Virgin Atlantic promotion is pretty straightforward and very generous. The most important things you should note are the booking and travel windows that are eligible for the 40% discount.

Eligible Routes and Examples

Depending on when you want to fly and how flexible you are, you can get a great discount with this Virgin Atlantic sale. This sale applies to all Virgin Atlantic flights. Here’s a quick look at what’s available between the U.S. and the U.K.:

Consider the flight example below: a one-way ticket from New York (JFK) to London (LHR) in Virgin’s economy cabin is discounted to only 6,000 points and $153.

And if you wanted to fly in Virgin’s premium economy cabin, you could book the same flight as above for just 10,500 points and (steep) taxes and fees totaling $438, one-way. Upper Class, Virgin’s business class product, is available for just 28,500 points one-way, though taxes are very steep at $1,027

Even better, these prices are also available on round-trip tickets, and award availability is wide open. Check out what we saw when we searched for a round-trip flight from New York to London.

How To Book

First, visit the Virgin Atlantic website to check for award seats. Then, choose your destination and travel dates.

Then select “Show Price in Points” under the “Advanced Search” tab and select which cabin you’d like to search for. Finally, click the arrow and browse the reward seats available at the 40% discounted points price.

Hot Tip:

If you don’t have any Virgin Points or need to top off your account, you’re in luck. Virgin Atlantic is a transfer partner with all 6 major transferable currencies: Chase Ultimate Rewards, Capital One Miles, American Express Membership Rewards, Marriott Bonvoy, Bilt Rewards, and Citi ThankYou Rewards!

Final Thoughts

This 40% discount on Virgin Atlantic award tickets is definitely worth a look, especially if you want to hop across the pond for just 12,000 miles round-trip. As usual, do the math to see if this sale makes sense for you. If you were planning on booking a Virgin Atlantic award flight, this is a great opportunity to save some points.
