Virgin Atlantic to Expand Flights from Manchester Airport in 2018


Virgin Atlantic has announced that 2018 will mark its biggest ever season of flying from Manchester Airport, with nearly 40,000 more seats available to book compared to previous years.

Flights to both New York JFK and Atlanta have been upgraded and will now be operated by both the A330 and the Boeing 747, the largest aircraft in the airline’s fleet, boasting 455 seats per aircraft.

Commenting on the news, Stephen Turner, commercial director at Manchester Airport, said:

“To see Virgin Atlantic increase capacity on two of its most popular routes is incredibly pleasing and something which our passengers will welcome I am sure.

“The airline has an excellent selection of routes across America from the UK’s global gateway in the north, which as well as offering great holiday destinations, has also unlocked a wealth of economic opportunities for the region, most notable the carrier’s San Francisco service.”
