Virgin Atlantic Airways

Virgin Atlantic was founded by entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson more than 30 years ago after he decided the UK aviation industry needed a shake-up.

The airline has pioneered a range of innovations setting new standards of service. For example, Virgin Atlantic was the first airline to introduce Premium Economy, to include a bar on every aircraft for Upper Class customers, offer seatback TV in every seat in every cabin, develop a new generation fully flatbed inward-facing herringbone seat and fly a commercial aircraft on biofuels. Despite Virgin Atlantic’s growth, the service remains customer driven with an emphasis on value for money, quality, fun and innovation.

Today, Virgin Atlantic flies to over 30 destinations, including locations across the United States, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Virgin Atlantic currently has a fleet of 39 aircraft, which is comprised of Boeing 747s, Boeing 787s, Airbus A340-600s and A330-300s. The airline is an iconic challenger brand famed for its innovation, friendly service, and for bringing excitement and enjoyment back into travel.

Virgin Atlantic has joint ventures with Delta Airlines and Air France / KLM, offering 300 non-stop flights from 28 UK and European cities to 32 North American destinations, with 250 further connections within North America on Delta.
