Virgin Atlantic will be spreading its wings to South America for the first time with the launch of a daily direct flights between London Heathrow and São Paulo, Brazil in 2020.
The 11 hr 55 min flight will operated using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft boasting Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class, Premium and Economy Delight, Classic and Light offering.
The new service aims to capitalise on the fast-growing Brazilian economy, which benefits from year-round transatlantic demand.
São Paulo is the commercial capital of Brazil and one of the top 20 global economic cities; it’s the largest city in the Americas (after New York) for multinational companies to have offices, and provides a platform for Virgin Atlantic to broaden its offering to existing corporate customers.
The booming tourism industry complements the lucrative business market – and Virgin Holidays intends to launch a full product offering within Brazil for the first time.
The spectacular Iguaçu Falls and Amazon rainforest are easily accessible from São Paulo, and convenient connections will open up other iconic attractions such as Rio de Janeiro and the beautiful beaches of Santa Catarina.
The new flights to São Paulo will be on sale later this year. For further information, please visit www.virginatlantic.com or call 0844 2092 770.
