Your journey with us

Extensive health and safety measures for your peace of mind

 

Onboard and at the airport, together with our partners we’re committed to providing a safe and controlled environment, with robust and proportionate steps to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission. The health and safety of our customers and people remains our top priority, always, and we continuously review all our Covid-19 health measures.

At the airport

Cleaning

From check in desks to boarding gates, all areas of the airport are cleaned and disinfected regularly with high-grade products, tested to be effective against viruses, with a particular focus on high-frequency touchpoints such as self-service kiosks and check in and arrival desks.

Sanitising stations

Hand washing and sanitisation opportunities will be available throughout your journey.

Onboard

Cleaning

Every aircraft is disinfected before each flight, using hospital-grade disinfecting products. On flights departing the UK this is administered through the cabins using a ‘fogging’ (electrostatic spraying) technique. Our teams are trained to meet high cleanliness standards, with particular attention to high frequency touchpoints such as tray tables, overhead lockers and in-flight entertainment screens. Our washrooms are also thoroughly cleaned and sanitised before and after every flight.

Air filtration

All air on board is filtered through highly effective High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters that remove dust, allergens, bacteria, viruses and other particles from cabin air. Testing shows a removal efficiency of 99.999%, with vertical air flow refreshing cabin air completely every 2-3 minutes for excellent ventilation. 

Individual health packs

For convenience, individual health packs are available to all customers, containing medical grade face masks, hand sanitizer and surface wipes. 

Together, all of these measures ensure the aircraft environment is a very safe place to be, as supported by independent studies.

Mask wearing

 

The legal requirement to wear a mask in England was removed on 27 January 2022 and supported by the continued success of vaccine roll-outs and as we gradually learn to live with Covid-19, customers on certain Virgin Atlantic flights are now able to exercise their personal choice to wear a face mask on board. This updated policy only applies on routes where international mask-wearing regulations do not apply.

We understand that many customers will still wish to wear a mask onboard for their own confidence and protection, and these will be available on every flight, as these will still be necessary for boarding, disembarking and your destination airport.

Some airports, including London Heathrow and Manchester, no longer mandate masks inside the terminal, but you should check the rules that apply for your journey.

Experience the sights and sounds of travel that you've missed the most

 

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a phenomenon where a person gets a tingling sensation, often starting on the scalp and moving down the neck and spine. This physiological response can be triggered by a number of sights and sounds including whispering, isolated sounds such as tapping and beautiful or ‘oddly satisfying’ imagery.

From the bing-bong of the call bell, the click shut of the seatbelt and the evocative pop of the champagne cork, we've captured all the magical moments of travel to give you that signature ASMR tingly feeling. Enjoy!
