Virgin Atlantic is set to restart Shanghai flights for the summer.

It re-establishes business and leisure connections between the UK and China from 1 May 2023

The move follows a relaxation in travel restrictions as borders fully reopened.

Shanghai is Virgin Atlantic’s final route to be reinstated.

Virgin Atlantic’s Shanghai flights will operate on Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

It offers three-class service; Upper Class, Premium and Economy.

Juha Jarvinen, CCO, said; “The return of our Shanghai services has been a long-time coming and I’m delighted it’s finally a reality.”

Shanghai is also a hub to the airline’s new SkyTeam partner, China Eastern.

Virgin Atlantic is on track to join SkyTeam in the next few weeks.
