Virgin Atlantic

Richard Branson has joined Virgin Atlantic in Cancun, as the airline launched its inaugural flight to the Mexican city. Branson was joined on the wing on an Atlantic plane by singer Alexandra Burke and TV personality Keith Lemon, who enjoyed a bit of rough and tumble together.

Weve had lots of customers asking us to fly to Cancun over the years and being here, I can see why. Were enjoying the stunning white sand beaches, meeting some wonderful people and looking forward to some exciting diving later this week, explained the Virgin Group founder.

Take a look at the pictures below to see how it went down and check back with Virgin tomorrow, where well have exciting news about another possible new destination for the airline

It seemed as though Branson and Lemon had taken an instant disliking to each other...

...although after a little grappling it was all smiles...

...meanwhile on the plane staff got into the spirit of things with a local drink or two...

...before getting their hands on maracas and sombreros - a typical day in the life of a Virgin Atlantic crew member!
