Virgin Atlantic Cargo is giving customers in the UK a wider choice of services in 2017 with the launch of a new daily service from London to Seattle and extra flights from Manchester to the U.S.

Seattle joins the airline’s network on 26 March ex Heathrow and Virgin has high hopes for the route. “Seattle is in the top 15 import/export markets for cargo between the UK and U.S. and the level of interest from customers since we announced plans to start the route last year indicates we can gain a strong share of the market. It is clearly an important and growing origin, transit and destination point for cargo as demonstrated by the 10.2% increase in tonnage in 2016 through Seattle-Tacoma. It is a great addition to our U.S network,” says John Lloyd, Senior Vice President, Cargo at Virgin Atlantic.
