Virgin Atlantic celebrates Royal Wedding with onboard street parties


Virgin Atlantic is celebrating the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton in style by holding onboard street parties for passengers flying on the day of the royal wedding.


Flights departing from the UK on the 29th April heading to the USA and the Caribbean will be transformed into a traditional UK street party to ensure passengers don’t miss out on royal wedding fun.


Passengers on these flights in economy and premium economy will receive an afternoon tea of wedding cake and traditional English breakfast tea served in a souvenir union jack lunch box and the cabins will be decorated in bunting and union jack headrests to create a patriotic atmosphere. All passengers will also receive special Kate and William themed love hearts and ice cream during the flight.


Upper Class passengers will also have the option to join in with the festivities as the cabin will be decorated in union jack bunting and wedding cake and wedding favours will be available at the Upper Class bar. Each flight will also have a royal wedding themed dressing up box for the crew to take part in the onboard merriment.


Simon Soni, head of inflight services commented:

“We are really excited to be doing something special for our passengers and crew on this historic day. We are hoping that these extra special touches will make the flight really memorable.”


Virgin Atlantic flies to 32 destinations worldwide including New York, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, San Francisco & Los Angeles, Delhi, Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, Lagos and Nairobi as well as many Caribbean destinations.
