Virgin America Airlines launched its new service to its 18th city, Portland, Oregon, today, reports Aviation News.
“Virgin America, with its award-winning guest service and hip in-flight amenities, is a great new addition to our roster,” said Portland’s chief operating officer. “We look forward to a long partnership with this innovator in the airline industry.”
While many domestic airlines are cutting and reducing their services, Virgin America is growing. This growth supports local jobs, stimulates travel and tourism, and “spurs the increased competition that drives lower fares and better service.”
Virgin America is also known for its unique services and amenities such as custom designed seating, moodlighting, personal touch-screen entertainment, and WiFi on every flight.
As one of the fastest growing airlines, Virgin America, which is headquartered in San Francisco, California, has now expanded to 18 destinations, has a fleet of 52 new aircrafts, and has more than 2,600 employees since its launch nearly five years ago.
Virgin’s flights include New York, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, Philadelphia, and more, with connecting flights available to other destinations.
VAA was named Best Domestic Airline in the Conde Nast Traveler and in Travel + Leisure in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.
