Virgin Atlantic Launches Brazil Flight with Samba Special

Virgin Atlantic has announced the launch of flights between London Heathrow and Sao Paulo Guarulhos International Airport, Brazil.


The 11 hr and 55 min flight will operate on a Boeing 787 aircraft daily from 13 May 2024 and marks the first ever route for the airline to the South American continent. 

The Boeing 787-9 offers a total of 254 seats, including 31 in Upper Class, 35 in Premium, and 192 in Economy class. Onboard is a full service offering including complimentary food and drink and over 300 hours of entertainment (movies, TV and music). All aircraft are WiFi enabled.

To mark the news, Virgin Atlantic has released a one off, reimagined safety video – samba style. Starring famed dancer and choreographer, AJ Pritchard, and Brazilian model and actress, Juliana Paes, the video sees the duo depicted as Virgin Atlantic cabin crew, bringing a samba-twist to the skies.

Not to be outdone by the cabin crew, TV sensation Anton Du Beke makes a cameo appearance with a 10/10 performance as the plane’s pilot.

Famed as the foodie capital of Brazil, Sao Paulo is a bustling city offering visitor’s neo-Gothic architecture and a bounty of arts & cultural experiences – including a touch of samba!

The spectacular Iguaçu Falls and Amazon rainforest are easily accessible from São Paulo, with convenient connections to other iconic attractions such as Rio de Janeiro and the beautiful beaches of Santa Catarina.

As one of the most populous cities in the world Sao Paulo is also home to multinational businesses, providing a platform for Virgin Atlantic to broaden its offering to corporate customers.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
