Virgin Atlantic adds flights from Glasgow to Orlando

Virgin Atlantic is planning to add a third weekly service in 2015, adding 3,500 seats on the route from June to October.

“We’ve seen our Glasgow to Orlando service go from strength to strength since we started the route in 2007,” Joe Thompson, director of network and alliances at Virgin Atlantic, said.

“We added 14,000 seats to this service between 2013 and 2014 and are excited to be able to help meet customer demand by increasing capacity even further for 2015.”

Over the course of the season, there will be eight additional return flights to Florida, with four of these in the busy summer holiday period.

These flights will be on a Boeing 747-400, with 455 seats in total – 14 Upper Class and 66 Premium Economy.


“This is fantastic new for Scottish travellers looking to get away to America’s Sunshine State next summer,” said Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport’s commercial director.

“It demonstrates the popularity of the Orlando service which has grown every year since it launched at Glasgow Airport.”

As well as adding an extra service to Orlando, Virgin Atlantic announced earlier this year that they will be introducing a new service to Las Vegas from Glasgow in September and October 2015.

Seats for the Las Vegas flights will be on sale from October 10th.
