London Calling

Virgin Atlantic's new Canadian flight route.

This May, Virgin Atlantic officially enters the Canadian airline market with a new flight route between Vancouver and London (Heathrow Airport). The service will start with four flights per week on its Airbus A340-300 carrier—and, of course, the complete Virgin experience is in the cards for all customers, including their Upper Class tickets, which allow travellers to skip the line at Heathrow via a special security channel and organize chauffeur-driven car services to and from the airport. The new route takes off just in time for the London 2012 Olympics and Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations—jolly good, yes?
