Velocity has given notice that it will be introducing a Carrier Charge when redeeming an Etihad Reward seat with Velocity points.
The new surcharge is set to take effect from 18 June, 2016. The charge is applicable to each flight sector for Adults and Children. The rates are as follows:
- US$50 in Economy,

- US$300 in First

Etihad introduced carrier surcharges on their own Etihad Guest redemptions as one of a series of changes that it made last year. Having said that, Virgin appear to be charging more than the amounts that Etihad had set out at that time..
