SOUTH NORWALK, Conn., March 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Virgin Atlantic, the award-winning international airline, is today offering hot new sale fares from Vancouver to London, with Economy rates from $424* CAD and Premium Economy rates from $674* CAD bookable now through March 20.
Chris Rossi, Senior Vice President, North America commented: "It's a hugely exciting year for London with the Queen's Jubilee, World Pride and, with so much else going on, the spotlight is truly on the UK. These latest sale fares are designed to give travelers from Western Canada that little extra reason to visit London in 2012."
Virgin Atlantic announced its newest route from Vancouver to London last year and will begin flying on May 24. Passengers can expect a great experience in whichever class they choose to fly, with recent upgrades in the food service onboard and hours of free entertainment.
In Economy passengers are treated to comfortable seats and a new meal service that features a welcome cocktail, a three-course meal and all drinks as part of the ticket price.
Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy features a separate cabin, wider seats and more legroom than many business class offerings. Passengers are treated to dedicated airport check-in and priority boarding. Meals are served on china dinnerware with stainless steel cutlery, with a choice of delicious wines and an after dinner liqueur if so desired.
Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class suite features seats that are some of the biggest in the business, which convert to a fully flat bed with the touch of a button. Upper Class passengers get a complimentary limo to the airport and home again, and can expect a newly refined meal service that launched earlier this month. A British tradition has even found its way onboard – afternoon tea!
