Virgin Blue’s frequent flyer program Velocity is offering the prize of a lifetime, by giving one lucky traveller the chance to win a sub-orbital space flight on Virgin Galactic worth $310,000.

By far the most outrageous prize ever offered from a frequent flyer program anywhere on the planet, the trip on Virgin Galactic is part of a ’25 Million Velocity Point’ campaign launched yesterday (Feb 2).

To be in the draw, people need to either transfer points from selected card partners to Velocity, or earn Velocity Points with a number of airline and shopping partners before June 30, 2009. Every single Velocity Point earns a competition entry.

“Quite simply we want consumers to be aware that they have another option in Velocity which offers more freedom and better value as well as greater reward and redemption choices,” said Velocity general manager, Phil Gunter.
