Pride Flight

The UK's first Pride Flight

Marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and WorldPride

  

In 1969, the Stonewall Uprising in New York City catalysed the fight for LGBT rights. 

Fifty years later, NYC will host World Pride 2019, remembering Stonewall and honouring the achievements of the LGBT community. It’s an historic moment. It’s an epic party. And we want you to be there. 

  

Doors to manual, darling

Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Holidays, NYC & Company and The Alliance for Downtown New York have come together to stage the UK’s first Pride Flight. Friday 28th June 2019, flying from London Heathrow to Newark, New York on the VS069, you can join in on the action and celebrate this momentous occasion in style.

Staffed entirely by LGBT pilots and crew, and packed full of fun and surprises, it’s the best way to do WorldPride and mark an occasion 50 years in the making.

With plenty of special on-board entertainment, including a DJ, Drag Queen Bingo, a Judy Garland singalong, inter-seat speed dating and special in-flight entertainment, Virgin’s trademark flair, you’ll travel in style and celebrate Pride in the air, even before you land in New York City!
