“We are delighted to be able to announce our new partnerships with Hyatt Hotels & Resorts and Ian Schrager Hotels as both companies are a perfect match for Virgin Atlantic.
“Since it was set up in 1990 flying club`s aim has been not only to help our passengers travel the world but also to help them get the most out of doing so. I`m sure deals with superior hotel names like Ian Schrager and Hyatt will prove extremely popular with our flying club members.“Virgin Atlantic`s flying club is renowned throughout the industry because members can not only spend their miles on reward flights, upgrades and limo transfers but also on car hire, hotel breaks, holidays and an exciting range of leisure activities including sky diving and white water rafting for braver flying club members!
