Virgin Announces Direct Service from Manchester to LA 


Virgin Atlantic is increasing its operations from Manchester by 20 percent next year.

The boost will include the launch of a new direct flight to Los Angeles from May 26, 2019.

The airline will also double its existing service to Las Vegas from twice-weekly to four-times weekly from March 31, 2019. Flights to Boston will similarly be increased to three-times weekly from May 25, 2019.

Most flights, including those to New York and Atlanta will be operated by a Boeing 747, the largest in the airline’s fleet.

Commenting on the news, Shai Weiss, Chief Commercial Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said:

“We’ve always said that Manchester is an important base for Virgin Atlantic and this latest expansion really cements that.  We’re delighted to be able to provide the best possible service to the USA by welcoming a new route to Los Angeles and doubling the amount of flights to Las Vegas. 

By putting our aircraft on our New York, Atlanta, Boston and now Los Angeles flights, we can really maximise connectivity through our partner Delta, allowing even more customers to take advantage of over 200 US connections.”
