Virgin Atlantic has announced it will be investing more than £50million into a refurbishment of its Gatwick fleet of aircraft next year.
The first major step in the airline’s recently announced £100million product investment will see a complete interior retrofit of each of Virgin Atlantic’s 747-400 aircraft operating out of Gatwick and Manchester. The retrofit process will begin in May next year and will see a rigorous schedule that aims to be completed by October.
Passengers travelling to destinations including Orlando, the Caribbean and Las Vegas will benefit from new seats in Premium Economy and Economy and IFE technology, a touch screen system that offers more than 300 hours of content.
The aircraft will also be fitted with the ‘eXphone’ system which will allow passengers to make use of their mobile phones on board for voice, text and email services.
