Just a few days ago TripAdvisor released its official list of winners in the airline category of the Travelers' Choice Awards 2018, in which Virgin Atlantic scooped up the title of Best Major Airline in Europe. Ranked number one by the community of TripAdvisor's members, the British carrier also won the title of Best Premium Economy in Europe and as such has been crowned the top airline in the continent, beating big rivals like British Airways, KLM and Lufthansa.
Virgin Atlantic recently announced that it will offer a second daily flight from London Heathrow to Johannesburg. The new flights went on sale in late March and the service will begin flying in winter 2018. With two flights per day to Johannesburg, Virgin Atlantic expects to carry more than 300,000 passengers annually.
Four years after discontinuing flights from London to Australia, Virgin Atlantic announced that it will resume flights to Sydney and Melbourne. The flights, which will connect in Los Angeles or Hong Kong, will begin later this month. The announcement comes on the heels of a disappointing year for the airline, which experienced a decrease in profits in 2017.
In a move that will make it even more competitive with rival long-haul airlines such as British Airways like, Virgin Atlantic is tapping into the low-cost travel strategy to appeal to millennials and budget travellers by redesigning its Economy cabin. After a £300 million investment, Virgin will give passengers more choice than ever with three ways to fly Economy.
In a pioneering move that seeks to change the experience for passengers flying in Economy class, Virgin Atlantic has unveiled the launch of three new Economy tickets, allowing travellers to choose the option that best suits their needs and budget.
