Virgin Atlantic reaches new heights in Manchester

Virgin Atlantic has announced its biggest ever season of flying from Manchester Airport, with nearly 40,000 more seats available to book in 2018.

Flights to both New York JFK and Atlanta have been upgraded and will now be operated by both the A330 and the largest aircraft in Virgin Atlantic’s fleet, the Boeing 747, which boasts 455 seats per aircraft, providing even more opportunity for holiday-makers and businesses across the North West to get to the US than ever before. In total the airline will now offer over 350,000 direct seats between Manchester and US airports – all of which include complimentary food and drink on board, and access to Wi-Fi.

Virgin Atlantic now flies to seven US and Caribbean destinations direct from Manchester, including the trio of new routes launched this year to San Francisco, Boston and New York.  There are also easy one-stop connections to over 200 destinations including Los Angeles, Miami, Tampa and Cancun thanks to the airline’s partnership with Delta Air Lines via Atlanta and New York JFK.
