Virgin Atlantic is welcoming customers back onboard this evening at London Heathrow


After a three-month hiatus, Virgin Atlantic will be welcoming customers back onboard this evening with the first passenger flight departing London Heathrow to Hong Kong.

To ensure the health and safety of customers and crew, Virgin Atlantic is implementing additional measures to offer peace of mind in the airport and when taking to the skies.

These include enhanced and thorough cleaning practices at check in, boarding gates and onboard including the use of electrostatic spraying of high-grade disinfectant in all cabins and lavatories before every flight, ensuring no surface is left untouched.

Safe distancing will also be adhered to wherever possible, and mask wearing will be required throughout the journey.

All customers will be provided with a personal Health Pack for their health and safety, which will contain three medical grade face masks to be worn onboard, surface wipes and hand gel.

Customers will be given additional space onboard, some seats will not be available, and they will be marked with special pillows.
