Virgin Atlantic (airline code VS) is a British airline founded in 1984 by Richard Branson.
Virgin Group owns 51 per cent of the airline, with the other 49 per cent having been sold to Singapore Airlines in 1999. Delta Airlines agreed to purchase the stake from Singapore Airlines in December 2012.
Delta and Virgin together plan to be the main challenger to British Airways and its partner American Airlines on transatlantic routes from Heathrow.
Virgin Atlantic's main hubs are at London's Heathrow (LHR) and Gatwick (LGW) airports in the UK, but it also flies from Manchester (MAN) and, seasonally, from Glasgow (GLA).
The Virgin fleet is made up of Boeing 747 jumbo jets, Airbus A330-300s and the smaller A340-600 and A340-300.
Virgin was due to launch domestic flights in 2013. These will be operated on behalf of Virgin by Aer Lingus using narrow body aircraft. They will be branded as Virgin.
Virgin also has orders for the state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
