Discover our A330-200

Like many airlines, we've been affected by the engine supply issues on the Boeing 787-900. 

It's meant that we've had to keep some of our aircraft on the ground for a bit longer than we were hoping, instead of in the air where they belong.

Our teams continue to work hard to keep disruption to a minimum and we're taking great care to make sure these challenges impact our customers as little as possible. 

Where other airlines have cancelled flights, we're committed to our schedule and getting you to your destinations. That's why we've brought in four A330-200s to join the family.

We can’t wait to welcome you onto one of our latest flying ladies. You may notice a few small differences – the seats aren’t our classic Virgin Red just yet, but you'll still receive the same fabulous service from our crew.

A new Premium Cabin will follow later in the year.

Right now, there's no Premium cabin but we're planning to add this later in the year, with brand new seats and seat back screens.

For customers with an existing booking in Premium, we're trying to keep the impact as low as possible until all of our new aircraft have been updated. We'll be in touch directly with affected customers to discuss the options available.

In Upper Class you'll find 19 fully flat beds, and three entirely different ways to fly.

  • Love Suite -  A more intimate space for couples and friends travelling together
  • Solo Freedom Suite - Stretch out with easy aisle access
  • Solo Corner Suite - Extra privacy with a great view

Over the next few months we're refitting our four A330-200's with brand sparkly new interiors. Economy and Upper Class get a revamp, and we're bringing back our world-famous Premium cabin.

By the end of January 2019, our A330-200 makeover will be complete and we very much look forward to welcoming our four upgraded aircraft back into the fleet.
