Virgin Atlantic and Flybe extend codeshare deal

Flybe and Virgin Atlantic have agreed to extend their codeshare deal to Scotland. Scotland now have more access to the USA and Caribbean than ever before, thanks to the increased codeshare agreement. This includes Flybe's Manchester - Glasgow route, opening up all of Virgin Atlantic's flights from the UK's main northern hub. One boarding pass and one checked bag means that checking out the Grand Canyon and beach bumming in Barbados are infinitely more possible for Flybe customers in Scotland. 


Virgin Atlantic fly to seven destinations from Manchester, including Atlanta, Barbados, Boston, Las Vegas, NYC, Orlando and San Francisco. 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 travellers. “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.” 


Last year, Virgin Atlantic announced that its Flybe partnership would also operate between Heathrow and Edinburgh and Aberdeen, allowing travellers access to the airline’s Heathrow routes and cementing its commitment to Scottish customers.
