Decarbonising aviation is one of the biggest challenges our industry has faced. It requires change at a scale that some say is too difficult, too complicated to make a reality. We disagree. At Virgin Atlantic we believe if we’re going to stand a chance at being successful, then we’ve got to do things differently.

 

That’s why on 28 November 2023, Flight100 will take to the skies. The first time 100% SAF has been flown in both engines, by a commercial airline across the Atlantic.

 

The countdown has begun. Join us on our socials on the 28th for real-time updates, or click on the link below to learn more
