Virgin Atlantic: Nonstop Premium Economy Starting at €577 From UK

New York Manhattan

Virgin Atlantic has not only drastically reduced its business class prices, but also its premium economy prices! You can fly nonstop to most destinations for prices starting at merely £513 (~€608) – a great price to fly quite comfortably.


Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s current immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.

The fares are not refundable. Nevertheless, Virgin Atlantic, like many other airlines, has Coronavirus-related rebooking policies. You can rebook the flights without paying a rebooking fee. The price difference will be charged, but with a £120 discount. Example: You bought a ticket to Shanghai for £599 and wish to rebook it. The new flight that you’ve selected then costs £799, so you’ll have to pay £80 for the rebooking.

Here are the direct flights from London:

There are also some direct options from Manchester:
