Discount sale airfares available now! Virgin America, the airline that is reinventing domestic travel, announces it will bring its low-fare, award-winning service to Portland (PDX) as of June 5.
Tickets are on sale today for two daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and one daily nonstop flight from San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
Known for outstanding guest service, custom-designed cabins with three classes of service, and touch-screen in-flight entertainment at every seat, Virgin America has swept customers off their feet since starting service in 2007.
At a time when most U.S. carriers have been cutting capacity, Virgin America is expanding to its 18th destination and bringing much-needed nonstop competition from California’s largest airports to PDX. When entering new markets that offer little low-fare competition, the airline has frequently seen fares drop by up to 30 percent.
Although, there are strong business and leisure travel ties between California and Portland, the West Coast to PDX market generally has higher fares than similar flights to Seattle and the reason is competition.
In honor of its newest city, the airline is launching a systemwide fare sale, with PDX-LAX and PDX-SFO fares from $99 (taxes and fees included and restrictions applying). Tickets are available for purchase now at BESTFARES!
The airline was named “Most Eco-Friendly Airline” by Smarter Travel for its investments and its new fleet – which is up to 25 percent more fuel efficient than the average fleet flying in the U.S. Virgin America’s new aircraft offer custom-designed mood-lit cabins, fleetwide WiFi, power outlets at every seat and the most advanced in-flight entertainment in the skies. Every Virgin America guest enjoys their own nine-inch seatback touch-screen with:
- More than 35 on-demand movies, including independent films, foreign language films and latest release blockbusters
- 18 channels of live TV and 6 channels of cached TV, including MSNBC, CNN, Bravo, ABC, CBS, Current TV and BoingBoing
- 3,000 song music library and the ability to create a custom play-list in-flight
- A videogame library
- Interactive Google Maps, so guests can track their journey at eight levels of zoom
- Onboard seat-to-seat chat messaging
- World’s first on-demand food and drink ordering system with a healthy menu named best in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure
- Carbon offsets available via partner Carbonfund.org
In addition to a Main Cabin that offers leather seating with a deeper, more comfortable pitch, the airline’s First Class offers plush white leather seats with 55 inches of pitch, 165 degrees of recline and lumbar massagers. The carrier’s Main Cabin Select offers 38-inches of pitch, free food and cocktails, an all-access pass to media, dedicated overhead bins and priority check-in/boarding.
