HONG KONG (AFP) – Virgin Airlines is to offer frequent-flyer “Space Miles” that passengers can put towards flights in space with the company’s soon-to-be-launched Virgin Galactic, boss Richard Branson revealed.

“There are already 30 people in the world who have collected enough air miles to fly into space,” Branson said Tuesday.
