Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. is offering an American Express Co. card issued by Bank of America Corp.

The airline, which is majority owned by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group Ltd., said Thursday that the card would offer a variety of rewards, including three miles for every $1 spent on Virgin Atlantic purchases, 1.5 miles for every dollar spent on everyday purchases.

Through the end of January cardholders will automatically receive an entry for every $10,000 spent on the card for a chance to win a trip into space on Virgin Galactic.

B of A also issues cards that use the Amex network on behalf of Asiana Airlines Inc. of Seoul.

The Charlotte company issued its first Amex reward product in 2006.
