first_imgCheck-in times have been cut at Heathrow Airport on Virgin Atlantic flights, data from the airline shows.The airline announced that it has reduced check-in times for flights from Terminal 3 to around 40 minutes.A statement by the operator claims that the reduced times have been the result of the opening of its “Upper Class Wing and private security channel”.Virgin Atlantic also suggests that these are the fastest departure times out of any UK airport – a claim that is supported by its Upper Class Wing recently being named the World’s Fastest Airport Check In at this year’s Wallpaper Awards.Steve Ridgeway, the carrier’s chief executive, said that this shows customers are being offered “flexibility in their travel plans” if they are “running late after a busy day”.”From arriving at the airport and checking in – passengers can be relaxing in their upper class suite as their long-haul flight departs within 40 minutes,” he added.Virgin Atlantic recently underlined its efficiency in another area when it announced that it had turned the seat covers from a decommissioned aircraft into satchels.You may also like to read: The World’s Best Airports ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedVirgin wins award for Heathrow loungeVirgin Atlantic’s Clubhouse at Heathrow Airport has been named the best business class loungeVirgin Atlantic promotes online check-inVirgin Atlantic has announced plans to encourage more passengers to use its online check-in facilitiesNew look Heathrow Clubhouse unveiledNew look Heathrow Clubhouse unveiledlast_img
