Virgin Atlantic is excited to celebrate 15 years this July of delighting customers from Delhi to London and beyond. Bringing desperately needed competition to the route, since the launch on July 5, 2000 the airline has now flown over 1.8 million passengers and 100000 tonnes of cargo. Recently the airline became the first European carrier to fly the brand new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the Delhi-London route with the latest cabin enhancements and innovations, including the Wander Wall, a new social space in Premium Economy and Wi-Fi connectivity onboard.
