Virgin Atlantic is starting a new London Heathrow Airport–Las Vegas (LAS) route, March 31, 2019. Moving the currently operated flight out of London Gatwick (LGW) to its Heathrow Terminal 3 hub.
The Gatwick flight is with a Boeing 747, but the new flights will use a 787-9 plane, offering fewer, but more premium seats. Virgin says it’s seeing a growing demand from corporate travelers as Las Vegas is one of the largest conference centers in the world. The airline did a trial of the route last year with two Heathrow flights taking tech workers to CES in Vegas.
The 787-9 has 31 Upper Class seats, 35 Premium seats and 192 economy seats. Flights will depart London at 12:40 p.m., and Las Vegas at 7:05 p.m. The first tickets went on sale May 19, with prices starting at £369 per person, or $429.80.
Shai Weiss, chief commercial officer, Virgin Atlantic, said, “From spring 2019 we’re making it even easier for customers to travel from London Heathrow to Las Vegas and Boston by introducing new flights. The new services have been timed to offer convenient onward connections for UK and US customers, and feature our award winning service, a three course meal and inflight entertainment on every flight. We’re also pleased to bring back our popular seasonal service between London Heathrow and Barbados, to offer even more choice for holidaymakers.”
All airplane flights begin on the ground. An airport is the starting point, but airspace issues continue to expand from the terrestrial to the aerial. Altitude is no barrier when countries claim sovereignty from the Earth to beyond the stratosphere.
