New Virgin fleet to serve region

New Virgin fleet to serve region

Virgin Atlantic has confirmed that its newest aircraft, the Airbus A330-300, will start servicing routes next year, in the Eastern Caribbean alongside the newly refitted Boeing 747-400 aircraft that the airline currently operates.

The new A330 aircraft will feature a larger, newly designed, Upper Class Cabin with 33 seats which transform into the longest business class flat bed at 7’2″. The new aircraft also feature the longest on board bar in the sky and will have the latest Premium Economy and Economy seating in addition to the revolutionary fully interactive, touchscreen, in-flight entertainment system.

The deployment of the A330 will enable Virgin Atlantic to increase frequencies to markets such as Antigua and St. Lucia, resulting in greater choice and flexibility for Caribbean passengers.

Caribbean Regional Manager, Nick Parker said: “We are aligning our capacity to meet the changing demands of the market while maintaining our very latest on board facilities. Passengers flying between Eastern Caribbean and London will be able to experience the best of Virgin Atlantic with the latest on-board product.

“By adding more frequency into some destinations and increasing Upper Class and Premium Economy capacity into markets where demand was strong will ensure that passengers will have more choice when flying Virgin Atlantic. With these fleet changes we will remain the largest airline flying between the UK and Barbados, providing over 1,000 seats more per week than our nearest competitor.”

Virgin Atlantic will operate both 747’s and A330’s on different days into the market. Double stop flights, such as the airline’s Wednesday Gatwick to Barbados/Antigua shared flight will be replaced with direct services on A330’s.
