Virgin Atlantic has today resumed passenger flights after a three-month pause.
A service to Hong Kong left Heathrow on Monday, with others to New York and Los Angeles resuming tomorrow (21 July)
The airline will be offering a simplified hot food service in all cabins, designed to limit interaction between passengers and crew.
Economy and Premium Economy customers will now receive a meal box with a choice of two hot meals, cheese and biscuits and a dessert pot with a choice of wine, beer, soft drinks and bottled water.
Upper Class customers will receive a choice of three hot meals, desserts, including cheese and biscuits and a ciabatta roll, all delivered to their seat on a tray.
All customers will receive a second meal service which on day flights from the UK includes the Mile High Tea.
Corneel Koster, the airline’s chief customer officer, said: “The health and wellbeing of our customers and crew is at the centre of all our operations and that includes social distancing at the airport and on board wherever possible, meticulous cleaning of the aircraft and individual health packs for all customers, containing medical grade face masks, hand sanitizer and surface wipes.”
