Airbus A350-1000, the largest in the A350 XWB family, was chosen after a thorough evaluation and analysis of the alternative models.

It will then expand operations on vacation routes from London Gatwick to the Caribbean. The A350-1000 aircraft will be configured in 3 classes and will be able to offer the comfort and reliability of the A350 XWB range. The new aircraft will join the existing 10 Airbus A330-300 in the Virgin Atlantic fleet!
