Branson's Virgin Atlantic launches Little Red service in India
'Little Red' would be launching its services from London to Manchester on March 31, to Edinburgh on April 5 and to Aberdeen on April 9 from Delhi and Mumbai via Heathrow in London
Flying to Manchester, Edinburgh and Aberdeen from Mumbai and the national capital will now be seamless as Richard Branson's Virgin Atlantic today announced launching of its first-ever domestic flight service 'Little Red' connecting the cities.
'Little Red' would be launching its services from London to Manchester on March 31, to Edinburgh on April 5 and to Aberdeen on April 9 from Delhi and Mumbai via Heathrow in London, a statement from the airline said.
The airline would be adding 26 domestic flights a day between London Heathrow and Manchester, Edinburgh and Aberdeen to its existing long haul network.
Virgin said once brought into regular use, the pods will be able to transport up to 28 people at a time.
While Virgin is cashing in on routes to and from India, it is not interested in investing in India's carriers due to the high operating costs and tough working conditions.
Just days after Virgin Galactic spacecraft exploded over California's Mojave Desert, Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson has reportedly said that he still plans to be on his company's first craft that takes tourists to space.<br />
