About Virgin Atlantic
Virgin Atlantic was founded by entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson 32 years ago after he decided the UK aviation industry needed shaking up and an injection of style. On 22nd June 1984, Virgin Atlantic’s inaugural flight to Newark took place, on an aircraft filled with personal friends, celebrities and the media.
The airline has pioneered a range of innovations setting new standards of service. For example, Virgin Atlantic was the first airline to introduce the Premium Economy product, include a bar in every aircraft for Upper Class customers, offer seatback TVs on every seat in every cabin, develop a fully flatbed seat and fly a commercial aircraft on biofuels. Despite Virgin Atlantic’s growth, the service still remains customer driven with an emphasis on value for money, quality, fun and innovation.
Today, Virgin Atlantic flies more than 30 destinations worldwide, 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. In July 2016, Virgin Atlantic announced an order for 12 new A350-1000s, the latest aircraft in its fleet, operating from both London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
