Starting out as a small record store in Notting Hill Gate, Virgin have expanded to become one of the world’s most iconic and recognisable brands, with Virgin Atlantic one of the best-loved premium British airlines. Taking off in 1984 with just one (borrowed) aeroplane, by the end of the 80s Virgin had amassed a fleet of Boeing jets and flown well over a million passengers. From the onset Virgin Atlantic have been changing the game, being the first airline to offer their customers individual TVs, a feature now standard on all long-haul flights. Today, the world-class airline is looking to the future, making huge steps towards becoming more environmentally sustainable. You might not notice that they’ve invested billions to develop new, carbon-neutral fuels, though, because your flight will be as slick and as comfortable as ever. No surprise, then, that the World Travel Awards recently named them Europe’s leading airline to North America. Wherever you’re headed, and whatever class you’re flying there in, Virgin Atlantic can promise you a smooth ride. With Virgin Atlantic, one thing’s for sure, change is in the air.
