Virgin Cargo has a Pizzazz
Virgin Cargo Has A Pizzazz

  Virgin Cargo includes an inventive bunch of can-do logisticians.
  There are airlines with bigger fleets but Virgin Cargo has a pizzazz!
  First, it was lifting emergency supplies from China to UK.
  The pictures of Virgin crew uplifting medical supplies, whilst donning face masks and social distancing in honor of the UK National health Service (NHS) will remain an indelible and highly endearing moment of this crises. The ongoing view of VS inventive and creative marketing has been a beacon of determination and forward thinking, personifying style and spirited elegance during the worldwide lockdown.
  Now Virgin Cargo is expanding its offering, moving into “cargo only” twice-weekly schedules serving the UK-Israel trade, that include a vital aerial connection for shippers into the USA.
  London-Tel Aviv only flights are come what May 6th, featuring twice-weekly services every Wednesday and Saturday, offering same day connections to and from the U.S., China and South Africa.
  Virgin Atlantic Cargo Managing Director Dominic Kennedy: “We are getting great support from our customers for our cargo-only scheduled services and charters and we’re constantly looking at opportunities to help them get the capacity they need. Restarting cargo-only services to Tel Aviv is another positive step for our cargo business and our customers and follows the resumption of our Shanghai flights earlier this month. Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, our share of the Tel Aviv market was growing ahead of our expectations and, combined with the connections we can offer, we expect to see positive demand once again, especially to and from the U.S., Israel’s biggest trading partner.”
  The cargo-only flights depart from Heathrow at 20:30 every Wednesday and Saturday, arriving back in London from Tel Aviv at 09:20 the next morning. Virgin Atlantic’s Boeing 787-9 “secret freighter” flights will offer up to 35 tons of belly-hold cargo capacity.
  Virgin Atlantic is represented by its cargo GSSA partner WTA Aviation and cargo handler Swissport in Israel.
  Virgin Cargo has a pizzazz!
  That’s what Virgin Cargo has!
