Virgin America has announced that they will be introducing direct daily service from both San Francisco and Los Angeles to Toronto beginning this June marking the carrier’s first foray outside of the U.S.
Virgin America, which started flying in 2007, said Thursday that it made arrangements to lease nine additional Airbus jetliners, allowing it to announce its new Toronto route well as daily flights to Orlando from both San Francisco and Los Angeles, slated for August. The company also said it will launch three additional destinations later this year.
Currently, the airline flies up and down the West Coast and serves four East Coast destinations’”Boston, Washington’s Dulles International Airport, New York’s Kennedy International Airport and Ft. Lauderdale. The carrier’s President and CEO, David Cush, has said that one of the three new destinations Virgin America will announce later this year will be a long-haul service. There has been speculation that a Vancouver – New York service may be in the works.
Virgin America, as can be expected from the Virgin brand, does inflight in style with free in-flight wifi, mood lighting and pretty decent onboard food.
