Starting 25th May, Virgin Atlantic will offer direct flights from Heathrow to Austin.
The service to Texas’ capital city is the airline’s first new route to the United States since 2015, and it will compete directly with British Airways flights.
The Boeing 787-9 aircraft will fly four times a week, with 31 Upper Class, 35 Premium, and 192 Economy Delight, Classic, and Light seats.
Onward connections will be available from Virgin’s joint venture partner Delta Air Lines to ten US locations, including Seattle and Los Angeles on the west coast.
Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are incredibly excited to launch this new service to Austin, Texas. With an impressive food, arts and music scene, we know it’s a destination our customers will love to explore.
“The US has been our heartland for more than 37 years since our first flight to New York City in 1984. Since US borders opened to UK travellers on November 8, it feels extra special to be launching new flying, especially to the fantastic city of Austin.”
Jarvinen also added: “There are so many synergies between Virgin Atlantic and the city of Austin. We love their philosophy and desire to celebrate local brands, businesses and communities and we cannot wait to welcome customers, both existing and new onboard, flying them safely to explore this fabulously quirky city.”
