A look at the rise of Virgin Atlantic

It was the summer of 1984 when Virgin Atlantic made history with its first voyage to New York. 28 years after, several long-haul routes have been added. At present, the airline is pleased to announce that they are already flying to more than 35 of the world’s most famous business and leisure destinations. Estimates of 6 million passengers are boarding the plane annually.

You can travel in style from London Heathrow to just any destination across United States and Canada. It flies six times daily to New York and twice every day to Los Angeles. And if you frequently travel to Boston, Washington DC, Chicago and Miami, you would not miss any flights anymore as they have regular schedule to these states.

For businessmen, taking care of business in Africa or Middle East is made easy and comfortable, as Virgin Atlantic had already extended their service to Johannesburg, Dubai, Lagos and Accra. There were also seasonal flights available to Cape Town.

Reservations can be made via the company’s website in advance, to take advantage of choosing the most comfortable seats as well as pre-boarding convenience. And for best experience, passengers can also upgrade for extra legroom or exit row seats.

Virgin Atlantic treats passenger like a First Class traveller. Each passenger is provided with a dedicated boarding lane for fast check-in and easy boarding any time, a welcome drink and free newspaper, 38 inch pitched leather-clad seat with a headrest and swing-down footrest.

Passengers can choose to be served with 3 special meals of their choice served on fine china ware, accompanied with wine (red or white), free kit which packed with everything needed to make a long-haul flight cosier. Passengers will enjoy travelling with so much complimentary available like drinks and snack all throughout the flight, amenity kits, film channels and delicious meals that can be pre-ordered.
