Virgin Atlantic will restart flights from most of its US gateways as early as Aug. 1, according to a statement from the carrier. In addition to flying from the US to London and Manchester, customers will be able to connect onward to Tel Aviv, Mumbai, Lagos, Shanghai, Delhi and Johannesburg. In total, the airline is set to add 17 routes across the network, including service to and from Miami, San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Seattle and Las Vegas. This will follow on plans to restart the first passenger flights to London Heathrow beginning July 21. The resumption of service is dependent on the lifting of travel restrictions in all respective markets. The carrier also said that many of these routes will be served by new A350 aircraft, featuring enhanced social space, extra storage and the latest entertainment systems.
