Virgin to launch summer Glasgow Airport - Orlando flights


Virgin Atlantic is to fly from Scotland for the first time next summer. The airline will launch weekly flights between Glasgow to Orlando, Florida, bringing the first regular Boeing 747 to Scotland's skies for years.

Aviation insiders yesterday said they hoped the flights, although only seasonal, were a sign of more to come from Virgin. However the airline downplayed the announcement, denying it was testing out the Scottish market for bigger expansion.

A Virgin spokesman said: 'We will fly once a week from Glasgow for the Scottish school holidays, and then again once a week in October, for the half-term. It's a total of 10 flights and it's really only a one-off.'

However, a 'senior aviation source' told one newspaper: 'I would say this is a significant announcement from one of the leading holiday airlines in the UK. Virgin is a massive international brand and this is their first foray into the Scottish market. Even though we're talking about six flights during the summer, the fact that Scotland is now on their radar is significant in itself.'

A spokesman for BAA Scotland, the company that owns Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports, said: 'The launch of these summer flights is a further boost to Glasgow's reputation as Scotland's holiday airport.'
