Virgin America Debuts at Washington Reagan National Airport

On Tuesday, Virgin America made its inaugural flight from Washington’s Reagan National Airport on w flight bound for San Francisco.  This route is a daily round-trip flight and it is the only one for this carrier as the airport has a restricted slot availability.  Virgin America won the slots last spring when Congress passed legislation to increase the number of long-haul flights from the airport.  However, on the new route, Virgin will be in direct competition with United Airlines.

 

United’s daily nonstop round-trip flight to San Francisco was launched on May 14 and is also the result of the legislation, with which they were allowed to take one of their existing routes and swap it for one that extended past the 1250 mile perimeter.  For the launch of the Virgin America flight, the airline hired Obama and Romney impersonators to help kick off the new route, a very patriotic slant on the event.  At the same time, the airline announced their partnership with Rock that Vote, the largest non-partisan voter registration service in the US.
