Virgin Atlantic App
Welcome to the Virgin Atlantic App. This is an official app and was produced by Virgin Atlantic.
Our app allows you to check-in, select seats, keep an eye on flights and link to our mobile website while on the move. This free app is simple to use and you can:
•Interact with a spinnable, zoomable world globe showing (near) real time location of our fleet of aircraft and tap on a plane and get arrival & departure information
•NB The plane positions are now enhanced with data from www.flightaware.com so are much more accurate over US and UK airspaces
•View the approximate flight path of the aircraft. Also shake your device to select a route at random.
•Set an alert which will appear on your device when the aircraft lands (needs v3 and above of the Apple operating system)
•See flight schedules/timetables taken from a live feed so they are always up to date
•Check-in and select your seat on an interactive plan of the aircraft
•View short videos of most of our destinations
•Link to Flying Club account info in our mobile website
•View latest news from our Twitter feed @VirginAtlantic
•Play two simple games involving finding Richard and directing Richard’s hot air balloon between our airports. Don’t expect Doom or Halo! They are just a bit of fun to while away time.
•Link to iPhone friendly pages on the V-Flyer site (www.v-flyer.com) such as seat maps and customer photos. Note this site is independent to Virgin Atlantic.
If you are offline, the app will store flight and Flying Club information so you can still see most of the details.
We plan to keep it fresh by updating it at least quarterly. There is an email feedback option within the app for your suggestions of what we should add next. We really appreciate hearing your opinions, so please continue to let us know what you think!
The app is part of a family of mobile services which currently include the Virgin Atlantic Flying Without Fear app, the Virgin Atlantic Jet Lag app, the Trip Journal app, and the Virgin Atlantic mobile website (mobile.virginatlantic.com).
Thanks also due to www.flightaware.com for providing enhanced aircaft position accuracy.
