New Benefits: Priority Check-In and Boarding for Silver Medallion Members on Virgin Atlantic Flights

Beginning May 21, 2019, Silver Medallion Members are now eligible to receive Priority Check-In and Priority Boarding when traveling on all Virgin Atlantic-operated* flights. These benefits will allow Silver Medallion Members to check in at the Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy check-in desks and board with Priority Boarding on Virgin Atlantic flights.

As a reminder, as of November 2018, Silver Medallion Members also receive a free checked bag when traveling on all Virgin Atlantic-operated flights. This benefit includes a waived fee for one extra bag over the standard allowance on Virgin Atlantic-operated flights, regardless of the cabin booked.

Learn more about Medallion Benefits on our partner airlines.

*The operating carrier for a flight indicates which airline operates the aircraft. For example, a Virgin Atlantic-operated flight means the flight will be on a Virgin Atlantic aircraft.

We understand that life is always changing, and sometimes major changes can pause your ability to travel. We always want to be here for you. That’s why we’ve created Reclaim My Status. This new Medallion Benefit helps you return to Status when life slows down your travel so that you can continue to experience the Medallion difference.

If you have lost your Medallion Status for a reason such as parental leave, illness, injury, a job change, or school, and are ready to start traveling again, you can request to enroll in Reclaim My Status.

Upon approval, you will immediately be given three months of the complimentary Medallion Status you previously had. To extend your Status beyond three months, you must meet the minimum travel and spend thresholds for your Status. Once you meet the thresholds, you’ll get Status for the remainder of this Medallion year, plus the entire following Medallion Year!

Learn more about Reclaim My Status and hear stories from your fellow Medallion Members that helped inspire this new benefit.
