Virgin America has celebrated the launch of its new nonstop flight service, between its San Francisco home and Washington’s Reagan National Airport, with an election themed inaugural.
“As the only airline based in California, we’re pleased to bring new competition to this important – and currently underserved – route from the West Coast,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush.
“We benefitted from a groundswell of community support in our bid to fly to DCA. We know both business flyers and technologically-savvy leisure travellers will enjoy having a new nonstop flight option that allows them to stay connected and productive en route to our nation’s capital.”
The airline teamed up with Rock the Vote to host some surprises for the airline’s first DCA flight guests, including the appearance of some very recognisable face. With Presidential impersonators Jim Gossett as “Mitt” and Reggie Brown as “Barack” chatting with travellers on both sides of the aisle, en route to the nation’s capital onboard the first flight.
The new daily flights will bring healthy competition to the route and offer travellers a vastly improved flight choice – with WiFi, power outlets, personal touch-screen entertainment and three classes of service on all Virgin America flights.
