Virgin Atlantic sets up new airline entity

Virgin Atlantic has setup a new subsidiary to handle some of its Caribbean flights.

Virgin Atlantic, A330

Virgin Atlantic International Ltd was incorporated in April this year and its directors include Craig Kreeger, chief executive of Virgin Atlantic and Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group.


The new service will use two of Virgin Atlantic’s A330-300 aircraft, and will fly from Gatwick airport to Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua, Grenada and Tobago.


In a statement to TTG, the airline said: “The CAA has now granted us an Air Operator Certificate for a new entity called Virgin Atlantic International Ltd, which we plan to use to operate certain Caribbean services on Virgin Atlantic’s behalf starting later this month.


“The services will be operated by Virgin Atlantic’s own team of pilots and cabin crew, using two of our existing A330-300 aircraft. This will make no difference to the destinations served or the experience our customers know and love.”


TTG asked why the airline was using the subsidiary but a spokesperson declined to comment further.
