Virgin America has begun its service between Los Angeles International (LAX) and Philadelphia, the 17th market in the carrier’s network.
The airline will follow these nonstop flights from LAX with service to Philadelphia from San Francisco International (SFO), beginning on 10 April.
Virgin America is the first US airline to launch new service at PHL in eight years. “Philadelphia is a vibrant, world-class city that deserves more airline competition,” declared Virgin America president and CEO David Cush. “In addition to bringing low-fare competition to routes previously only served nonstop by legacy carriers, we believe our unique service will be a welcome change for Philadelphians tired of the typical domestic airline cattle car.”
