Virgin America’s seasonal nonstop service between San Francisco and Palm Springs is being expanded to a year-round flight schedule.
Virgin America first launched service to Palm Springs in 2011 from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and added service to New York JFK the following year.
“As the only airline headquartered in California, we know that Palm Springs is a popular destination for our loyal Bay Area flyers – and couldn't be more pleased to be expanding our seasonal SFO–PSP schedule to year-round service,” commented John MacLeod, senior vice-president of planning and sales at Virgin America. "Our stylish, design-driven flight experience is a perfect match for travellers headed to the Desert Oasis. This latest expansion reflects strong demand within California in particular and is a testament to the success of our service in the market to date.”
Virgin America's SFO–PSP service will operate four times weekly through the autumn with weekly JFK–PSP flights remaining seasonal.
