Pride in Our People Through the Pandemic

Without a doubt Covid-19 has left a profound imprint on our industry, our company and our people. Yet throughout this pandemic, we have been constantly inspired by the heroic efforts of everyone who works for us, and their extraordinary commitment to our survival, our customers, and each other.

We’ve swapped our red uniform for blue scrubs, rolled up our sleeves, donned our masks, and found new ways to use our incredible skills to help us through these tough times.

And our purpose has never been more relevant – everyone can take on the world. We’re facing up to the challenge, as a team. And what a team. Together, we’re determined and ready to return to the skies and the places we love, in true Virgin Atlantic style.

Here are some stories from our amazing people:
