Out with the old,
in with the new

Our new 747s

Virgin Atlantic has completed the re-fit of all its Boeing 747 fleet which fly out of London Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow at a cost of more than £50 million.

It was the ultimate spring clean, requiring 125 project staff from start to finish working over 95,000 hours to fit over 32,000 new parts.
