Luxury travel consortia Virtuoso is getting into the space age, announcing a new strategic partnership with aerospace and space travel company Virgin Galactic which will make a limited number of seats for Virgin Galactic’s spaceflight experience available to Virtuoso’s global client base.

Virgin Galactic’s flight system takes off and lands on a runway and allows passengers to experience weightlessness and views of Earth. In the lead up to space flight, Future Astronauts can enjoy access to the flagship membership community, including exclusive events, trips and activities around the world. The experience culminates in a multi-day, all-inclusive astronaut training and hospitality program for the customer and three guests at Virgin Galactic’s planned innovative campus.

“Virtuoso is excited to welcome Virgin Galactic back into our partner portfolio and to offer our clients a travel experience like no other,” said Virtuoso Chairman and CEO Matthew D. Upchurch. “As a Future Astronaut myself, I can speak firsthand to the curated, high-touch and one-of-a-kind journey Virgin Galactic offers, as well as the community it cultivates.”
