Virgin announced yesterday that they were to add more regional flights from the UK for next summer.
- Belfast and Orlando
Glasgow and Las Vegas
Clearly using larger planes than the one pictured, the flight from Belfast will be Virgin’s first from Northern Island. Sure to be popular with locals, it avoids the ruinous UK departure tax.
A Boeing 747-400 aircraft will operate these seasonal services on a weekly basis, flying on Thursdays. The aircraft flying to both US destinations will be configured with 14 Upper Class seats, 66 Premium Economy seats and 375 seats in Economy.
Belfast to Orlando service
The Belfast to Orlando service will operate in June and July, with the first flight on 25 June 2015. Seats will be on sale on the Virgin Atlantic website from 25 July 2014.
Glasgow to Las Vegas service
The Glasgow to Las Vegas service will operate in September and October 2015, with the first flight on 10 September 2015. Seats will be on sale on the Virgin Atlantic website from mid-October 2014
