Scottish travelers now have more access to the USA and the Caribbean than ever before, thanks to an increased codeshare agreement between Europe’s largest regional airline Flybe and Virgin Atlantic.
The latest addition to the partnership includes the Flybe route between Manchester and Glasgow, opening up all of Virgin Atlantic’s Manchester routes to customers travelling from the Scottish city for the first time as part of the codeshare. Seven long-haul Virgin Atlantic destinations are now available to even more Scottish customers, whether that’s a beach holiday in Barbados, shopping in New York, partying in Las Vegas, or sightseeing in San Francisco.
The enhanced partnership allows customers in Scotland to seamlessly connect between Virgin Atlantic and Flybe, with one boarding pass and their bags checked through for the entire journey.
Roy Kinnear, Flybe Chief Commercial Officer commented: “We are delighted that this latest extension of our valued codeshare partnership with Virgin will bring even more of the world closer to Scotland travelers. It gives both airlines increased network reach, and reinforces our commitment to provide our customers with convenient seamless ‘One Stop to the World’ connections from their local airport.”
