Virgin America Comes To Chicago


Chicago travellers have another airline option as of Wednesday, when Virgin America launched its first operations out of O’Hare International Airport.

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, along with Chicago officials and business leaders, visited the airport Wednesday to welcome two inaugural Virgin Airlines flights that arrived at O’Hare’s Terminal 3, according to a release from the city’s Department of Aviation.

The airline plans to operate two daily flights from O’Hare to Los Angeles International Airport, and three daily flights to San Francisco International airport, the release said.

Dept. of Aviation Commissioner Rosemarie Andolino called the airline a “great fit” for the city while praising new carriers like Virgin for bringing jobs and competition to Chicago, according to the release.
