Virgin Atlantic is kicking off their end of summer sale with some pretty hot flight deals, and unlike other recent sales – this one features deals everyone can back, with economy from £269, premium from £449 and upper class starting under a grand! Here’s how to get in…

Here’s a round up of all the standout deals in each cabin, like…

Virgin Atlantic Economy Steals

Virgin Atlantic economy still offers meals, drinks, entertainment and all that good stuff, but if you want a checked bag, you’ll need to pay for classic instead of light. With deals like these, it’s best to learn how to make the most of your carry on, so that you can lock in the super low prices…

All of these economy deals can be made far more attractive if you can find a travel buddy by taking advantage of the Virgin Flight + Hotel prices, which bring New York and other top destinations with 3 nights hotel and flights included from £399 per person.

Virgin Premium Economy is a great way to fly by any standard, particularly when it’s on sale. With a new premium economy seat on the A350 and the same cabin that keeps winning awards on other planes, there’s a lot to love at these price points, particularly to Tel Aviv.

  • £499 – Tel Aviv Return.
  • £739 – St Lucia Return. 
  • £756 – New York Return.
  • £761 – Mumbai Return.

The same idea with flight + hotel offers applies for premium, which can mean paying just a fraction more but locking in three night of hotel, or more, if you can find a travel buddy to make it a two person shared trip. Here’s a review of Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy.

Though it’s always been a fun way to fly, Virgin Atlantic Upper Class is getting a serious makeover this year with flights operated by the A350. It goes from a cozy, solid seat to a brand new suite, with loads of privacy and lots more space to store your stuff. On routes other than New York, it’s the same great Clubhouse experience bar in the sky. Just like premium, if you’re headed to Tel Aviv, you can score an absurdly good deal, like…

  • £999 – Tel Aviv Return.
  • £1435 – Nashville Return.
  • £1450 – Puerto Rico Return.
  • £1777 – Barbados Return.
  • £1899 – New York Return (A350).

  1. Hi! I’ve had my eye on this sale since yesterday but am a little confused. I’m based in the US and when I go to the VS website, it has the big Premium sale banner on the home page with ‘Fantastic Premium fares TO the UK’… yet when I search fares (all date ranges over the winter period) the fares are as high as ever. Are the sale fares only valid for return flights originating in the UK? Thanks!
