Virgin Atlantic offers the widest range of non-stop scheduled flights between the UK and Florida as part of their comprehensive network of transatlantic services.
Right from their inception, Virgin Atlantic had every ingredient for success: The small newcomer taking on the giants and the establishment making them a people’s champion, introducing a better service and lower fares for passengers, and rapidly building a reputation for quality and innovative product development.
Virgin Atlantic was developed as an offshoot of Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, which was better known at the time as a leading light in the world of pop and rock music. On 22 June 1984 Virgin’s inaugural flight to Newark took place and in typical Richard Branson style, the flight was filled with friends, celebrities and media. The airline’s aim was simple: “To provide the highest quality innovative service at excellent value for money for all classes of air travelers”. Sounds good to us!
