Virgin america touches down in palm springs

Recommended Posts

San Francisco – December 15, 2011 – Virgin America, the California-based airline that is reinventing travel, today celebrates the launch of its upscale, low-fare service to Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) – the sixteenth market in the carrier’s expanding network. The new destination arrives just in time for winter getaways, with seasonal daily nonstop flights from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to PSP and seasonal daily “same plane” through flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to PSP, as of today. This afternoon, the airline touches down for the first time in Palm Springs and celebrates its inaugural flight with a red carpet welcome on the arrival tarmac for its first PSP commercial guests. Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson, Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet and Virgin America President and CEO David Cush will also join the SFO-PSP flight today. The airline’s SFO-PSP fares start from $79* and JFK-SFO-PSP through flight fares start from $169.*


“We’re pleased to be growing and bringing new competition into markets like Palm Springs and the surrounding desert resort cities. When we enter markets with less competition, we see fares drop and service improve. This area is a world-class travel destination – and visitors and residents alike deserve more air travel options,” said David Cush, President and Chief Executive Officer of Virgin America. “We hope our service will be a breath of fresh air for residents and for travelers to the desert oasis.”
