Virgin Atlantic Flights

Virgin Atlantic Information

With its unique logo and red livery, Virgin Atlantic is one of the most well-known airlines in the world. The company was founded by British entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson and co-founders Alan Hellary and Randolph Fields in 1984. After disagreeing with Richard Branson, Fields sold his shares in what is without a doubt one of today's most successful airlines. On 22nd June 1983, what was to be the first of thousands of Virgin Atlantic flights took to the air. The flight to Newark Liberty International Airport from London Gatwick airport set the standard and offered passengers their first taste of the new breed of transatlantic flights.
