Virgin Atlantic returning to Canada

Virgin Atlantic returning to Canada

Tuesday, 11 Jun, 2024 0

Virgin Atlantic is celebrating a milestone of 40 years of flying.

Four decades ago, the airline offered £99 tickets from London to Newark on a second hand Boeing 747.

Virgin Atlantic is now celebrating its Ruby Anniversary.

At the same time, it marked the launch of its 15th service to the US, as it commenced flights between Manchester and Las Vegas.

The new service complements the airline’s existing daily service to Las Vegas from London Heathrow.

Virgin Atlantic is also restarting Canada flights.

The airline’s first route to the country in more than a decade will begin next summer, as it launches direct flights between London Heathrow and Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The daily service will launch on 30 March, 2025 with fares starting from £490 per person.

Canada flights will operate a mix of aircraft on the route including the A330-900neo.

To support the route Virgin Atlantic is announcing an expanded codeshare partnership with Canadian carrier WestJet, which is slated for October this year.

The partnership will allow customers to travel throughout the region, including flights from Ottawa and Winnipeg.

Benefits for both airlines’ frequent flyers are expected to follow in 2025.

Sir Richard Branson said: “When starting Virgin Atlantic 40 years ago, I went against everyone’s advice. and on paper, they were right.”

Back then, travelling by plane wasn’t a fun experience, but I realised then that there was a gap to give passengers a great experience – and I love a challenge.”
