Then, 24 hours later, Lahore has been set to be attached four-times-weekly. All services are verified to be operated by Virgin’s 17-strong fleet of Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-equipped Boeing 787-9s. Juha Jarvinen, chief business officer in Virgin Atlantic,commented:”Pakistan is an extremely exciting opportunity for us — it boasts one of the biggest foreign-born inhabitants in the UK and the US.
“[With the] important opportunity to boost competition in the US-Pakistan marketplace, employing the strength of our transatlantic services, we are able to offer customers the shortest journey to and from destinations in the US such as New York, Los Angeles and Washington by linking through London/Heathrow,” he added.
Additionally, the carrier has stated, with both Pakistan cities being”popular year-round destinations”, need for business and leisure is anticipated to grow, even though COVID-19.
