Virgin Atlantic Debuts New Round-The-World Service

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

South Norwalk, CT – Virgin Atlantic Airways, one of the world’s leading long haul airlines, has launched new round-the-world service with limited time fares starting as low as $2,939 (including all taxes and fees).

With the new inaugural flight of V Australia, which begins service between Los Angeles and Sydney on February 27, Virgin now completes its missing link in global service.

Passengers will be offered two ticket options for their round-the-world trip – ‘Virgin Global East’ and ‘Virgin Global West’. The ‘Virgin Global East’ option takes passengers from Los Angeles to London Heathrow, continuing to Hong Kong and Sydney with Virgin Atlantic, and then from Sydney to Los Angeles with V Australia. The ‘Virgin Global West’ option takes passengers from Los Angeles to Sydney with V Australia, then onto Hong Kong, London, and back to Los Angeles with Virgin Atlantic.

The launch of the new fares coincide with Sir Richard Branson’s ‘Round the World in 8 Days’ tour, celebrating the 25th birthday of Virgin Atlantic and the launch of V Australia.

Speaking in Sydney, Sir Richard Branson, President of Virgin Atlantic, said: “Passengers now have a fantastic choice to make – which way to go around the world with Virgin! The combination of Virgin Atlantic and V Australia offers travelers huge flexibility in their global planning and some of the best value round the world fares available. The destinations are also some of the most exciting in the world.”

The special round-the-world launch fare of $2,939 (including all taxes and fees) is available for sale only through March 6, 2009, and is valid for departures throughout the year.
