Chicago expansion for Virgin cargo

Virgin Atlantic has introduced four Airbus A340-600 flights a week from Chicago, each offering up to 17,000 kilos of cargo capacity.

Frequencies will increase to daily from 18th May.

Dan Parker, vice president commercial, said: “Since we announced we were launching flights from Chicago, we’ve had a great response from our customers and we expect to be very busy on the route. They welcome the direct option Virgin Atlantic offers and also recognise we will be bringing more reliability and our own brand of customer service to the market, which they already enjoy at our other US gateways.”
