Virgin Atlantic Fleet Airbus A330-200 Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Virgin Atlantic operates 4 wide-body aircraft Airbus A330-200.
The first of Virgin Atlantic Airbus A330-200 to join their fleet began operating from 01 March 2018.
“Daydream Believer” (G-VMNK) entered service first, with “Scarlett O’Hara” (G-VWND) and “Honky Tonk Woman” (G-VMIK) joining in the following weeks, and “Strawberry Fields” (G-VLNM) joining in spring 2018.
These are Virgin Atlantic aircraft, operated by their own pilots and world class cabin crew.
A quick reminder of the background to this saga: is one of the airlines hardest hit by the engine problems which have befallen the Rolls-Royce powered Boeing 787-9 fleet.
When Air Berlin went bankrupt late last year, its A330-200 long-haul fleet was suddenly available for lease.
Virgin Atlantic jumped in and signed a four year deal on four aircraft.
This has allowed it to maintain its flying programme and, once the 787-9 issues are over, will even give it some interesting options for expansion.
