Starting in September, Virgin Atlantic will resume service to Hong Kong after a pause due to the pandemic. Previously served by a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, the route will now be taken over by Virgin’s flagship Airbus A350-1000, featuring its new Upper Class Suite.
Virgin only recently resumed flying out of Terminal 3 at Heathrow, following its reopening after over a year of renovations. This also means that a revamped Virgin Clubhouse is available to premium and elite travellers again, along with the Revivals lounge and Upper Class wing.
The flagship aircraft used on the route is Virgin’s newest, boasting the new common space called The Loft along with the previously mentioned new Upper Class Suites. Providing a fresh new interior, this Airbus is a great place to spend some time during your next flight to Hong Kong.
According to the schedule, the route is operated by this aircraft until at least 5 December, after which it’s scheduled to be handed back to the 787-9 again.
