The aircraft have been retrofitted with its premium cabin, while upper class and economy have received a makeover.

The refurbished aircraft will come into service in November.

The 35-seat premium cabin will offer 38-inch seat pitch and bespoke food and drink.

Exclusive to Virgin’s A330-200s, all upper class suites will have direct aisle access, new leather seats and a choice of suite style.

All flights offer Wi-Fi, power in seat and onboard entertainment.

Daniel Kerzner, Virgin Atlantic’s vice-president customer experience, said: “Earlier this year, we acquired A330-200s to maintain our flying programme and were committed to refurbishing these aircraft to our high standards.

“In only a few months, we’ve been able to source, design and manufacture new cabin interiors, testament to our teams and their focus on giving our customers a truly Virgin Atlantic experience.”

Virgin introduced the A330-200s, acquiring some from Air Berlin, in March to safeguard its service in light of a global shortage of Trent 1000 engines, used on its Boeing 787s.

The airline later pledged to revamp all cabins with Virgin Atlantic’s customary style and features.

Virgin recently announced it would increase capacity 20% at Manchester from next March.


This includes doubling direct flights to Las Vegas and launching a new direct service to Los Angeles.
