We look after our people as well as our passengers...

Our pioneering spirit and passion keeps our brand alive. That's why we give our people the recognition and rewards they truly deserve for the hard work they do.

Just as we work hard, when it comes to playtime, the rewards are there to help you enjoy life to the full. Indeed, our full-time employees receive up to seven concessionary standby flights a year to any of our glamorous global destinations - this should be more than enough to satisfy the most extreme wanderlust! (Just so you know you'll still have to pay some of those rotten government taxes on these free standby flights, but that conversation is for another time!)

Beyond a whole world of other travel opportunities with our friends at Virgin Holidays and other leading travel operators - once you're fully on board with us we also offer a very very long list of benefits...


Whether the age you wish to take your pension is a long way off or rapidly approaching, it's always a good time to start planning ahead financially. The aim of a personal pension plan is to put money aside to provide you with an income when you take your pension. If you want to change jobs before you take your pension, it's important that a pension plan is flexible and portable. The Virgin Atlantic Group Personal Pension Plan does this and more.

Life assurance and Spouse & dependants benefits

And we think of the things we don't want to think of... we're there for your loved ones for death in service.

Income Protection

Provides long-term income protection benefit in the event that you are unable to work due to illness or injury.

Airshare - profit share

You have the opportunity to share in the success of the business.

Private Medical Plan

We'll pay the annual subscription premium for private health care for you and your loved ones (a taxable benefit again here).
Also take advantage of the special discounted rates for private dental care.


Get 'on your bike' with us and exchange part of your salary in return for the lease of a bike for work , you don't pay income tax or National Insurance on the price of your new bike so you could typically save anything between 32% and 42% off the normal retail price!

Childcare benefit

We offer a childcare voucher scheme via salary sacrifice. We're family friendly and this is for all UK employees with children under the age of 16.

Holiday purchase

Exchange part of your salary & request to purchase up to one extra week's holiday a year - more opportunity to use those standby tickets!

Season Ticket Loan

And to help you get to and from work we'll lend you the season ticket cost - interest free - and deduct it from your salary over the next 12 months.

Staff Store, Salon and Gym

Our very own VAA Store has a wide selection of lower priced cosmetics and beauty products, greetings cards, leisure wear, travel accessories and the Salon offers discounted hair and beauty treatments. The subsidised staff Gym offers great facilities at a fraction of the cost, so with us you can buy cheap and look great!
