Virgin Atlantic’s first A350 takes shape


Possibly one of the most popular airlines in the world, Virgin Atlantic’s first A350-1000 is  nearing full assembly prior to its pre-paint roll out and interior fit. It’s due to be handed over in early 2019, with its first routes likely to be Heathrow based.

Five of the aircraft are set to replace the rest of the A346’s in lieu of the now retired ‘famous five’ – Virgin Atlantic’s Heathrow based 744’s now sadly long gone.

The rest of the new fleet will be allocated to Gatwick for the scheduled holiday services, replacing the remaining 744’s.
