Virgin Atlantic has reopened its on-board bars the first time in 15 months.
The airline’s social spaces, which are open to those travelling in Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class cabin, will reopen on all Green and Amber Virgin Atlantic routes across the airline’s worldwide network today, including Antigua, Barbados and Grenada.
Customers travelling on Virgin Atlantic’s newest aircraft, the Airbus A350, will experience the latest social space concept, The Loft. As the largest social space in the airline’s fleet, The Loft offers a social area where customers can settle in to watch a show or our live tailcam on the 32-inch TV. Bar options are also on board the airline’s Airbus A330 and Boeing 787s.
Corneel Koster, Chief Customer and Operations Officer at Virgin Atlantic said: “Our on-board bars and social spaces are a signature part of our Upper Class experience so I’m delighted we’re finally able to reopen them to our customers, where they can enjoy a drink and catch up with friends. I know our cabin crew teams can’t wait to get back to providing our customers with the full Upper Class service we’re famous for and that’s been missed by many over the last 15 months.”
To ensure the continued safety of its customers and people masks will still be required within the social spaces unless eating or drinking, with social distancing remaining in place where possible.
