If you want to take a look at all the exciting things happening at Virgin Atlantic, you're in the right place

Before customers fly, they may need to present evidence of a negative Covid-19 test and/or proof of fully vaccinated status. To make this easier, we’ve partnered with TrustAssure™ to enable them to upload and pre-verify these documents in advance, before you travel to the airport. By confirming Virgin Atlantic FlyReady status in ‘My booking’, our customers will have a smoother check in and boarding experience at the airport.


Virgin Atlantic FlyReady status will show airline agents that travellers have met the test or vaccination requirements for their destination, but they should still bring original test and/or vaccination certificates with them and complete any other entry documents, such as US attestation form or UK Passenger Locator FormYou can find more info on the travel requirements for the US and UK here.


Using FlyReady is entirely optional, and currently only available to customers aged 18 and above. The tool supports a smooth and streamlined airport experience, with important documentation approved in advance. Limited personal information will be securely shared with TrustAssure™, such as name and date of birth, as well as flight details for verification purposes. This will include information about others in the booking too, so that we can check everyone is eligible for Virgin Atlantic FlyReady.


TrustAssure™ will let us know whether test results or vaccine certificates have been approved for travel to their destination, but will not share these documents with us, or any other personal health information.


Most importantly, we want our mutual customers to have a hassle-free journey, knowing that they’ll fly safe and well with us.


Please note:

  • Customers travelling as part of a group (9 adult passengers or less), to use the FlyReady Check In desk, all members of the travelling party must have pre-verified documents.
  • As children under 18 are currently unable to use FlyReady, families should proceed to the documentation checkpoint at the airport, even in circumstances where the adults on the booking have completed the FlyReady process.
  • Customers using proof of recovery from Covid-19 in the previous 90 days as their health credential to travel to the US, instead of a pre-departure test, should present this at the airport as it’s not possible yet to pre-verify this through FlyReady.
