Virgin Atlantic is a British-based airline owned part by the Virgin Group and part by Delta Air Lines. Their main office is located in Sussex, not far from London Gatwick Airport. Virgin Atlantic operates routes between the UK and North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle-East, Asia, and Australia.
Virgin Atlantic Airways was founded in 1984 with the sole purpose of creating an airline to operate flights between London and the Falkland Islands just after the Falkland War ended. The service was needed but the route was quickly dropped. Instead, cheap flights to New York were secured from London Gatwick. On June 22, 1984 Virgin Atlantic operated its inaugural flight London Gatwick - New York (Newark). A few years later, new aircrafts were acquired and new routes launched, including cheap flights to Tokyo, Los Angeles, Boston and Orlando. Virgin Atlantic was the first airline to operate the Airbus A340-600, the largest passenger aircraft in the world, on scheduled flights.
