Virgin Atlantic has announced a new route out of Manchester.

From 26th May 2019 there will be three flights per week from Manchester to Los Angeles.  This will put Virgin in direct competition with Thomas Cook, who also fly the route.

Los Angeles will replace the current Manchester – San Francisco route.

The Manchester routes to Las Vegas and Boston will also see increased frequency over Summer 2019.  There will be four weekly services to Las Vegas from 31st March and three weekly services to Boston from 25th May.
