Virgin Atlantic’s Economy Delight is now available for booking as a through-fare.

The product can now be purchased from domestic points of sale with Virgin’s partner interline airlines SAA, BA Comair and, and is available in the SME, nett and published markets for agents.

“We have worked hard to open this up to agencies, who can now offer this product to passengers connecting from domestic points in South Africa,” says Darrin Thomas, Marketing and Communications Manager of Virgin Atlantic Airways in South Africa.

Through-fares allow baggage to be checked all the way to the final destination and offer the most competitive pricing available in the market on that specific routing, he says.

Economy Delight is part of Virgin’s ‘3 New Ways to Fly’, which was launched in 2018 and offers customers three different economy offerings – Classic, Light and Delight.

The Delight option offers seats with 86cm of leg-room, priority check-in and boarding, a luggage allowance of one bag of 23kg as well as free seat selection at any time.

Thomas says passengers enjoy the Delight offering, with the airline seeing a steady uptake in bookings.
