New appointment for Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic Airways has appointed Currimjee

Jeewanjee as Virgin’s General Sales Agent in Mauritius.

Paul Dickinson, Virgin Atlantic’s Director of Sales and Marketing said:


    “I am delighted at the appointment of Currimjee Jeewanjee as Virgin’s


    General Sales Agent in Mauritius.  I am looking forward to working

    with them towards the start of our twice weekly service from London

    to Mauritius.  After an extensive tender process, we felt that

    Currimjee Jeewanjee was a good fit for Virgin and would be at the

    forefront of promoting our product not only in Mauritius but also in

    the region.”


Currimjee Jeewanjee & Co. Ltd was established in 1890, originally trading

in commodities.  Since then, the company has diversified into sectors such

as telecommunications, media, IT, real estate, tourism and finance and is

active both in Mauritius and the region.

Virgin Atlantic will commence services between London Gatwick and Mauritius

twice a week on Mondays and Fridays on a Boeing 747-400 aircraft from 29

October this year.


All flights to Mauritius will be operated on aircraft fitted with the Upper

Class Suite. The Upper Class Suite consists of a reclining leather seat for

take off, a place to sit and eat a proper meal opposite your partner, the

longest fully flat bed in the world with a proper mattress for sleeping on.


Since it was founded in 1984, Virgin Atlantic Airways has become Britain’s

second largest long haul carrier, serving the world’s major cities.  Now

based at London Gatwick, London Heathrow and Manchester airports, Virgin

operates 37 aircraft and flies to 27 destinations worldwide with further

services launching to Chicago, and Nairobi later this year.
