Virgin Atlantic has announced details of its a brand-new Clubhouse at Newark Liberty Airport set to open in October 2012.
Created by the same team as the JFK Clubhouse (New York-based architectural practice Slade Architecture in collaboration with the Virgin Atlantic in-house design team) the Newark space is being designed we are told with a mixture of NYC’s downtown flair and Virgin Atlantic’s warmth and individuality.
The personalised food service will offer Upper Class passengers a local community experience with the opportunity to indulge in locally-sourced produce. To allow passengers the maximum time for relaxation before boarding, the Clubhouse will be located airside, after the security checks in Terminal B and close to the gates. The Newark Clubhouse marks the final element in Virgin Atlantic’s £100m investment in its Upper Class product. During 2012 the airline has also opened a new Clubhouse in New York JFK, unveiled a new Upper Class cabin on its A330-300 aircraft and also a new Upper Class fine dining experience.
Virgin Atlantic offers two daily flights from Heathrow to Newark as well as three daily flights from Heathrow to JFK, with a fourth daily service beginning on 28 October 2012. With the bmi loss it is also promoting its connections via Heathrow from India. www.virgin-atlantic.com
