It was a celebration fit for a king on Thursday evening when Virgin Atlantic rolled out the red carpet at Lincoln restaurant to celebrate 15 years of service in the DC area.
The long time connection between Dulles airport and London's Heathrow has been a fantastic venture for the airline and provided a critical international link to the DC. Senior Vice President of Virgin for North America, Chris Rossi, said “In the service industry its about your people, and we have the best people,” reflecting on the anniversary. He mentioned that in 15 years the DC flight has served nearly 2 million passengers and has amounted around $315 million in local revenue for the DC area.
