NY boost from Virgin America

More flights connecting its hubs at Los Angeles and San Francisco with New York Newark have been announced by Virgin America.

The California-based carrier is increasing the number of daily non-stop services to four from both Los Angeles International Airport and San Francisco International Airport as of 18 November.

Director of network planning Adam Green said Virgin America, in conjunction with the new service, is also offering more conveniently-timed flights “so guests don't have to travel too early in the morning or too late in the evening".

"Since our launch, we have been committed to increasing competition in the New York metropolitan area, with lower fares and service that allows passengers to stay connected, comfortable and productive coast-to-coast," he added.

The airline claims its “inflight experience” is ideal for transcontinental travel, with a three-class configuration of service including First Class and a Main Cabin Select premium-economy service.

It also features wi-fi, power outlets at every seat, a full-service food menu and touch-screen seatback entertainment available to all passengers.

Virgin flies to all three New York area airports – JFK, LaGuardia and Newark – and with the additional frequencies will offer 10 flights a day from Los Angeles to New York and nine from San Francisco.
