Help after Typhoon Haiyan

Our cargo consisted of medical supplies and newborn infant survival kits.
Super Typhoon Haiyan was the strongest tropical cyclone to ever make landfall with sustained wind speed at landfall of 195 miles per hour with wind gusts of up to 235 miles per hour and a surge in sea level during the storm of 13 feet.
The impact is classified by the World Health Organisation as Category 3, the highest — making it one of the worst disasters in recent history, on par with the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the Haiti earthquake in 2010.
14.1 million people were affected, more than 13% of the country's population with a death toll of more than 6,000. There are 1,800 people missing, 27,000 injured, 4.1 million displaced and 1.2 million homes destroyed.
Most immediate threats to survivors (in order of urgency): Lack of safe drinking water, no shelter, untreated injuries and illnesses, insufficient food, lack of sanitation and personal hygiene items, lack of household supplies like fuel.
Among the cargo we carried were 234 ‘newborn kits’. These carry essential items for babies in their first few weeks of life and were sent to Tacloban, one of the places worst hit by Tyhpoon Haiyan. Given to mothers on their first postnatal visit after delivery, the kits are designed to last each infant for at least one month, helping to reduce the risk of severe infection.

WIFI connectivity onboard

We're in the midst of running broadband trials on some of our long haul flights. You might have had the chance to use the WIFI onboard Lady Love, Diamond Girl or Champagne Belle. If you have, we'd love to hear what you thought. If you've yet to use the service, if you're travelling onboard one of these aircraft there will be a seatback flyer with information and instructions for use.

We're planning on rolling this service out across more of our fleet this year, so we'll keep you posted!

Changes to Heathrow Terminal 1 Little Red lounge access

We’re pleased to announce a new benefit change for customers travelling on Virgin Atlantic Little Red from London Heathrow Terminal 1. From 1 March 2014, eligible customers will be offered a £10 Costa Coffee card instead of an invitation to the Servisair Lounge.

This change has come about as a result of customer feedback. Costa Coffee is located in a prime site in the gate area in T1, adjacent to our desks, so it’s extremely convenient for our customers. And they’ll now be able to choose their own refreshments from a wide range of sweet and savoury snacks and drinks.

To clarify, eligible customers are:

  • Y and J class bookings on Little Red
  • Connecting Upper Class customers
  • Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Gold members

Eligible customers can collect their £10 Costa Coffee card at the Little Red desk at Gate 8.

All domestic Y & J class bookings, connecting Upper Class customers and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Gold members will still be able to use the 3rd party lounges in Edinburgh (Servisair Lounge), Aberdeen (Servisair Lounge), and Manchester (Escape Lounge). And they’ll still receive their £10 Costa Coffee card at Heathrow Terminal 1.

Mumbai opens its state-of-the-art new Terminal 2

Mumbai Airport has opened its brand new Terminal 2, which all airlines including Virgin Atlantic, moved in to on Wednesday 12 February.

The new Terminal 2 building in Mumbai Airport is spread over 400,000 sq metres and will increase the airport’s capacity to 40 million passengers and handle 1.50 million tonnes of cargo a year, from the 30 million passengers and 639,063 tonnes it handles now.

On arrival into Mumbai, you'll be greeted by a 3km stretch of artwork which depicts Indian history, Bollywood film culture and the city of Mumbai, with walls painted up to 18 metres high and can be seen from every floor in the terminal. Previous arrival immigration congestion has been addressed with the introduction of 76 desks and the number of baggage carousels in the arrivals hall has also increased, which will help alleviate baggage delays in busy times.
