Since its inaugural flight between London and Newarkin June 1984, Virgin Atlantic has been reinventing what it means to be an airline. Taking a cue from sister company Virgin Records, co-founder Richard Branson brought a fresh and innovative approach to the fledgling brand, blending excellent service with popular culture. Today, Virgin is a globally recognized super-brand.
