Virgin Australia has had its largest competition entry day on record last Thursday following the opening of the airline’s VA-X & Win COVID-19 vaccination jackpot on Wednesday.
A record of more than 100,000 entries were received with COVID-19 vaccinated Australians entering to win from a prize pool valued at more than $150,000.
Prizes for fully vaccinated Australians include Business Class Flights, Lounge memberships, Virgin Australia pyjama sets and a whopping one million Velocity Frequent Flyer Points for one lucky winner.
The record-breaking entries demonstrate the willingness for vaccinated Australians to be rewarded for rolling up their sleeves and getting the jab.

A Virgin Australia spokesperson said, “We have experienced the largest number of competition entries on record since the VA-X & Win mega prize draw and advertising campaign commenced yesterday, with more than 100,000 fully vaccinated Australians entering”.
“The overwhelming response demonstrates loud and clear that Australians are excited by the Virgin Australia and Velocity Frequent Flyer prizes on offer for simply rolling up their sleeve and protecting themselves, their loved ones, and the country against COVID-19”.
“It’s a special day for Virgin Australia and we hope that many more Australians do their part to get fully vaccinated so they can enter the VA-X & Win competition before it closes on 31 December”.

VA-X & Win advertising campaign
To coincide with the opening of the competition, Virgin Australia released a new VA-X & Win marketing campaign last Thursday, poking a bit of fun at the current constraints on the nation.
The campaign shows two Virgin Australia passengers who are missing the special feeling that comes with flying so much so that they try to recreate the experience from the comfort of their own homes.
Using a makeshift airport travelator and a “Business Class” reclining chair to mimic the in-flight experience, the passengers find that nothing can replace the joy and excitement that comes with flying. Time quickly fast forwards to a world where borders have opened, and the passengers are finally reunited with their old lives and the real Virgin Australia flying experience once again.
The videos are housed on Virgin Australia social media channels and will be 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.
