About Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic first commenced operations in 1984. Randolph Fields and Alan Hellary, a lawyer and pilot respectively, set up British Atlantic Airways in 1982. The two tried to secure a licence to fly to New York JFK, but it was rejected. A few months later, Fields met businessman Richard Branson at a party and Virgin Atlantic was created. The first scheduled service was between London Gatwick and Newark Airport, New Jersey.

In 2012, Virgin Atlantic carried almost 5.5 million passengers, making it the seventh largest airline in the UK. The airline has main bases at London Heathrow and London Gatwick, with a secondary base at Manchester Airport. Flights are also operated from Glasgow and Belfast on a seasonal basis.  The airline flies to 31 destinations around the world.
