Virgin Atlantic Cargo adds new Belfast-Orlando route

Virgin Atlantic Cargo today launched a new cargo route from Belfast to Orlando as it looks to continue to expand US operations.
The new flight departs from Northern Ireland every Monday throughout the summer. From June, a weekly Friday service will also be added.
The flight will mainly carry general cargo, spare parts and machinery. It will be operated utilising a B747.
Virgin Atlantic Cargo account manager north England, Midlands, Scotland and Northern Ireland Lisa Forshaw said: “We enjoy great support from customers in Ireland, particularly for our transatlantic routes from London and Manchester. The start of our new Belfast-Orlando service is a great opportunity for Virgin Atlantic to offer a consistent flying schedule from the city to the USA and beyond.”
This new direct Orlando offering is in addition to 17 flights a week ex Gatwick, 12 from Manchester, and a twice weekly Orlando operation from Glasgow.
