DFW Welcomes New Virgin America Service to Los Angeles and San Francisco


DFW International Airport today announced that Virgin America will  begin nonstop service from DFW to Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco  (SFO), beginning in December.


“Virgin America’s decision to launch service from DFW Airport to two  major markets is a testament to the strength and vitality of the  Dallas-Fort Worth region,” said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW. “Our passengers  will see a big benefit from the increased competition and the new Virgin  America service.”   The new service will launch with two daily flights from Los Angeles to  DFW as of December 1, 2010 and two daily flights from San Francisco to  DFW as of December 6, 2010. Virgin America will serve DFW utilizing  modern Airbus A320 aircraft.   “Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the largest metropolitan areas in North  America and a major center of business with strong ties to California –  most notably in the financial services, energy and the Silicon  Prairie-Silicon Valley high-tech sectors,” said Virgin America President  and CEO David Cush. “With unrivalled value and a flight experience  unlike anything else in the North American skies, we think our service  will be a breath of fresh air for Dallas-Fort Worth travelers. Before  today, travelers along these routes had very little choice and we think a  little healthy competition is always a good thing – especially for  consumers.”   Virgin America, a San Francisco-based airline established in 2007,  offers travelers low-fare, upscale service and inventive amenities  including mood-lit cabins, WiFi on every aircraft, power outlets near  every seat and one of the most advanced in-flight entertainment  platforms in the industry, known as “Red.”   “Virgin America’s arrival at DFW Airport represents an outstanding new  travel option for Dallas and our region,” said Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert.  “We welcome Virgin America and its innovative approach to airline  service and look forward to a long and productive partnership.”   “Our region’s incredible growth over the past decade makes Fort Worth  and all of North Texas a very strong target for expansion for Virgin  America,” said Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief. “Our diverse business and  cultural communities make an outstanding and rich marketplace for  Virgin America to do business.”   The arrival of Virgin America’s new service to Los Angeles and San  Francisco will inject new low-cost competition into two of DFW’s largest  markets.   “Virgin America is well-known in the industry to have outstanding  customer service,” said Joe Lopano, executive vice president of  marketing and terminal management for DFW. “Our staff worked very hard  to bring Virgin America to DFW, and the payoff will come in competitive  fares, more options and great service for travelers.”   Virgin America will become the eleventh domestic carrier at DFW Airport,  and the fifth low-cost carrier, when it starts service in December.
