Working with innovative, creative brand, RowType, the new kids’ pack will be introduced across the airline, with packs continuing to be handed out to Virgin Atlantic’s younger flyers at the gate at all UK airports. These new packs have all been reinvented for children to enjoy onboard, or to take away and use when creating memories on their holidays. The new kids’ pack includes:
A red branded reusable bag for future travels
Children’s UV400 sunglasses to wear on their holiday
A colourful sensory poppit toy to help soothe the little travellers on their journey
Holiday journal to capture amazing memories
An additional activity book for entertainment on the flight
Selection of colourful pencils for all the colouring in
Virgin Atlantic has also introduced a delicious new meal option with little travellers in mind. The brand-new children’s meal includes a refreshing Pip organic smoothie, a giant cookie, yummy cheese dippers, and a healthy fruit bowl. The children’s entrée includes tasty chicken goujons, sweetcorn, and potato wedges. For those children travelling in Upper Class, there will be an additional entrée of creamy mac and cheese.
Paul Mills, Head of Inflight Services, Virgin Atlantic commented, “We’re incredibly pleased to announce our new kids’ pack and enhanced meal offering for children travelling with Virgin Atlantic. We love creating unique moments for all our customers onboard Virgin Atlantic, including our younger travellers.
“Our commitment to developing our onboard offering shines through in our brand-new kids’ pack and meal. We wanted to offer something; we know that the little ones will love, as they take to the skies on an exciting adventure.”
About Virgin Atlantic
Virgin Atlantic was founded by entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson in 1984, with innovation and amazing customer service at its core. In 2022, Virgin Atlantic was voted Britain’s only Global Five Star Airline by APEX for the sixth year running in the Official Airline Ratings. Headquartered in London, it employs over 7,500 people worldwide, flying customers to 27 destinations across four continents. Virgin Atlantic recently continued its expansion in the US, announcing a new route to Tampa from November 2022, following the launch of flights to Austin in May 2022.
Alongside shareholder and Joint Venture partner Delta Air Lines, Virgin Atlantic operates a leading transatlantic network, with onward connections to over 200 cities around the world. On 3 February 2020, Air France-KLM, Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic launched an expanded Joint Venture, offering a comprehensive route network, convenient flight schedules, competitive fares and reciprocal frequent flyer benefits, including the ability to earn and redeem miles across all carriers. Virgin Atlantic is also set to join the global airline alliance SkyTeam in 2023. Virgin Atlantic will become SkyTeam’s first and only UK member airline, enhancing the alliance’s transatlantic network and services to and from Heathrow and Manchester Airport.
Sustainability remains central to the airline, which is committed to achieving net zero by 2050. To meet this goal, Virgin Atlantic welcomed the first of 16 A330-900neos in October 2022. The A330-900neos are equipped with the most fuel-efficient engines and designed to be 11% more fuel and carbon efficient than the A330-300s that they replace and deliver a 50% reduction in airport noise contour. These investments reaffirm the airline’s dedication to flying one of the youngest and most fuel-efficient fleets in the skies, resulting in the reduction of carbon emissions by 20%, increasing to 30% in 2027.
