In 1984, Richard Branson, a lifelong entrepreneur, founded Atlantic Virgin when he detected the opportunity to revolutionise the aviation sector in the United Kingdom and make travel by plane to become an exciting, attractive and pleasant thing. Almost 40 years later, being extraordinarily different remains an essential component of Atlantic Virgin's DNA. Always moving, always innovating and placing the customer at the centre of everything they do.
This London based airline can boast of being the second largest airline in the United Kingdom. It also has more than 7500 employees worldwide and offers flights to 27 destinations across four continents. In 2022, Virgin Atlantic received APEX recognition for the only British five-star airline for the sixth consecutive year in the Official Classification of Airlines.
In its mission to achieve the target of zero net emissions by 2050, Atlantic Virgin welcomed the first of the 16 A330neo aircraft in October 2022. These revolutionary planes are 11% more efficient in terms of fuel and carbon emissions, as well as 50% more silencer than the A330-300 they replace. Thus, Atlantic Virgin's proud position as the owner of one of the youngest, cleanest and most ecological fleets that can be seen in the sky is strengthened.
