Sarah Copley, the company’s commercial executive director for the west coast, said: “In our 20th year of Virgin Trains, our Summer Seat Sale means it’s even easier to jump on a train and enjoy the best the UK has to offer. We take pride in providing our customers with the best travel experience possible. While our punctuality remains at record levels, we have brought ground-breaking firsts to our customers, like the industry’s first free on-board entertainment app Beam and pioneering mobile ticketing."
