first_imgVirgin Atlantic has announced plans to encourage more passengers to use its online check-in facilities.The carrier will offer passengers a £10 discount on onboard purchases if checking in online for flights from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester.Passengers flying from the two London airports will also receive vouchers to spend at duty free stores in Terminal 3 at Heathrow and the South Terminal at Gatwick.”We hope that this promotion will encourage passengers to check-in online before their trip as it means that on arrival at the airport, they simply hand over their luggage at the ‘Bag Drop’ desk and go straight through security, making the whole process much quicker and stress free for them,” said Paul Dickinson, sales and marketing director at Virgin.This follows a similar initiative launched earlier this year. Over the course of April and March, Virgin offered £6 vouchers for onboard purchases over £30 for passengers who took advantage of the online check-in facility.Passengers flying with Virgin Atlantic from London Heathrow will soon be able to take advantage of new flights from the airline.New flights to Hong Kong will operate three times a week from October, with frequencies increasing to daily in December.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedVirgin gives shopping incentive for online check-inVirgin Atlantic is offering passengers a new incentive to speed up the process and check in online.Virgin Atlantic cuts check-in times at HeathrowCheck-in times have been cut at Heathrow Airport on Virgin Atlantic flights, data from the airline showsRyanair baggage and check-in fees to riseRyanair baggage and check-in fees to riselast_img
