Virgin offer pushes online check-in

28th Feb 2008

Virgin Atlantic is offering its passengers travelling from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester Airports who check in online, £6 off a £30 spend onboard with Retail Therapy, Virgin Atlantic’s onboard shopping range.The offer runs between the 1 March and 30 April this year.

Retail Therapy, was recently voted ‘In-flight Retailer of the Year’.  The airline has two magazines to target the tastes and fashions of its business travellers and leisure passengers.  Both magazines contain over 180 items from top brand names and include over 50 brand new products in the latest editions.  The range can be viewed online at

Paul Dickinson, Sales & Marketing Director for Virgin Atlantic, said:

“We hope that this promotion will encourage passengers to check-in online before their trip as it means that on arrival at the airport, they simply hand over their luggage at the ‘Bag Drop’ desk and go straight through security, making the whole process much quicker and stress free for them. 

“We did a similar promotion last summer which proved to be very popular with our passengers, so we’re hoping that by offering them a voucher again to spend onboard their flights, they will use this opportunity to see for themselves just how easy using online Check-In is.”


To obtain the voucher, passengers will need to check-in online between the 1 March and 30 April.  Once they have done this, they will be able to print off their voucher from their check-in confirmation email and take it with them on their flight.  To obtain the Retail Therapy discount, passengers simply need to present the voucher to a member of cabin crew onboard their flight when making a duty free purchase of £30 or over.
