Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy provides unexpected travel perks

From advance seat selection to priority boarding, little extras make a huge difference.

It’s the little touches here and there that help travelers truly enjoy time in the air. Those extra few inches of space, a glass of bubbly as you board, and a tasty meal served on china crockery with proper cutlery. Just enough to give a big lift before getting to their destination.

Before flying

Premium Economy passengers can enjoy the luxury of selecting their seat from 331 days before their flight, free of charge. They just need to head to Virgin Atlantic’s website and go to “My booking” section.

Skip the queues

With dedicated check in and bag drop, clients get a fast track experience at the airport. They also enjoy priority boarding and, where possible, their bag will be one of the first off the plane at arrival.

Sit back and relax

As first impressions count, Virgin Atlantic’s cabin crew greet customers with a complimentary drink and newspaper while they settle in.

More comfort

There’s more space to relax, because the Premium Economy leather seat is one of the biggest in its class. It’s up to 21 inches (over 53 cm) wide, with a footrest, headrest and 38-inch (over 96 cm) seat pitch.

Little extras

On our night flights, travelers receive a Premium amenity kit wallet, containing all the essentials they need for a great flight.
