Travelers who hop between theme parks in the Orlando and Los Angeles areas now have a new nonstop flight option to consider when booking trips between these two cities. Virgin America has announced it will serve Orlando International Airport (MCO) with one daily nonstop flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) (as well as San Francisco International Airport) beginning October 6, 2010.
Diana Walke, Vice President of Planning and Sales at Virgin America said, “Orlando is an important year-round leisure, convention and business travel destination and we look forward to introducing our unique product to travelers on these routes.”
Tickets are on sale today on Virgin America’s web site and at 1.877.FLY.VIRGIN (1.877.359.8474). LAX-MCO fares start at $149 one way in the Main Cabin.
Due to a delay in its leased aircraft deliveries, Virgin America had previously postponed its sales and original start of service to Orlando (flights were originally slated to begin August 19, 2010).
In addition to the upcoming Orlando flights, Virgin America currently flies to San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, and Toronto.
Each Virgin America flight features WiFi, an advanced touch-screen in-flight entertainment system, and “mood-lit cabins.”
