Virgin Atlantic also says goodbye to Boeing 747 | due to corona crisis NOW

Virgin KLM is now doing the same, after KLM announced earlier that it would be saying goodbye to the four-engine Boeing 747 aircraft as a result of the corona crisis. Richard Branson’s British company says on Tuesday that it will no longer use the seven jumbo jets it has.

Saying goodbye to the relatively expensive aircraft to fly with is part of a wider package of measures announced by society to survive the corona crisis. It also says goodbye to more than three thousand employees “in all kinds of functions”, the company said.

Virgin Atlantic is 49 percent owned by the American Delta Air Lines, which also has an interest in Air France-KLM. It was actually intended that Air France-KLM would also take an interest in British society, but that was canceled last year. The four companies do work closely together on transport across the Atlantic.

Virgin Atlantic says it expects it will take at least three years for aviation to recover from the corona crisis.
