So that we can offer your customers greater choice of international flights, we’ve entered into alliances with a number of airlines. These codeshare partnerships have been carefully chosen so that your customers have our commitment that we only work with airlines that can deliver the same high level of service that we do.

On codeshare services connecting with Virgin Atlantic flights, we are able to check both your customers and their baggage through to their final destination (where local customs regulations permit).

We work closely with our partners to enable us to offer your customers the shortest possible connections between our services.

Please note: Our codeshare partner’s rules may differ on matters such as [but not limited to] check-in times, baggage allowances and restrictions, refusal of carriage and denied boarding compensation. We recommend that your customers review such rules in advance of travel by contacting us and/or visiting our codeshare partner’s website.
