Virgin Atlantic is set to elevate the on-board experience of its passengers as well as increase capacity on African routes as it plans to deploy the Airbus A350 to Lagos and Johannesburg.

The airline will deploy the ultra-modern aircraft on London route with effect from August 2020 while the aircraft will debut on Johannesburg route in March, 2020.

Virgin Atlantic's brand new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft features the airline’s redesigned upper class cabin and unique new social space.

The new Virgin Atlantic's A350-1000 is configured with a total of 335 seats including 44 seats in Upper Class, 56 seats in Premium Economy class and 235 seats in Economy class.

With a totally redesigned Upper Class cabin complete with Loft area as well as tailcam and new in-seat ordering feature, this new aircraft is revolutionizing travel.

Customers flying between London and Lagos and between London and Johannesburg will love to fly on this new aircraft and will enjoy the onboard experience of the newly redesigned cabins.

Virgin Atlantic currently deploys the Airbus A340-600 on its daily service between London Heathrow and Lagos. A Boeing 787-9 is on the London-Johannesburg service.

Virgin Atlantic’s first A350 took to the skies in September with an inaugural flight to New York. It ordered a total of 12 A350-1000 aircraft, with them all scheduled to join the fleet by 2021.
