Latest routes, new aircrafts and fantastic destinations from Virgin Atlantic

San Francisco & Boston, more convenient than ever before

Virgin Atlantic are introducing brand new direct flights to San Francisco and Boston in the summer of 2017. Flights to San Francisco will be twice weekly and three times weekly for Boston. Both new services will operate on one of the airline’s newest A330 aircraft and will be fully configured with Upper Class, Premium Economy and Economy cabins. This gives the 22 million passengers living within two hours of Manchester Airport yet another great long haul destination to choose from!




San Francisco is one of the most vibrant and famous cities in the world. The Golden Gate Bridge is an iconic landmark of the city and spans elegantly across the bay. At the other side you’ll find idyllic towns such as Sausalito and Tiburon in neighbouring Marin County and for extra fun, why not catch the ferry back! Famous for its classic cable cars, dynamic diversity, grand dame Victorians and beautiful waterfront, the ‘City by the Bay’ really has it all. San Francisco stands out as one of the ultimate must-sees on any traveller’s wish list and with good reason. Travel up and down the city’s signature hills and cling onto the clanging trams as you chug through Chinatown and the iconic Fisherman’s Wharf.

As one of the oldest settlements in the USA and the largest city in New England, Boston has plenty of historic culture. Boston is an easy blend of historic charm and modern conveniences, with a busy street life and beautiful architecture, green parks and gardens, skyscrapers and modern freeways, museums, galleries and colonial churches.
