Virgin Atlantic Set To Resume Flights To The U.S. In July And August
British airline Virgin Atlantic will be resuming flights this summer with plans to service new destinations starting this August. This decision comes after the airline halted passenger flights in April, laid-off employees, and had to find new investors after not being able to get a government loan or grant.
Although Virgin Atlantic has suffered hit after hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the will to push through is helping the airline to get back on its feet.
The airline says in a statement, “As countries start to lift travel restrictions and demand for travel begins to return, it is expected that Virgin Atlantic will steadily increase passengers flying in the second half of the year, with a further, gradual recovery through 2021.”
