At Virgin Atlantic, we’re just as passionate as we’ve always been about becoming the most loved travel company. It’s been an uncertain time, for us, for everyone. There’s been ups and downs, some successes, and some sadness. One thing we know for sure – this last year has shown that when we combine our brand with the power of amazing people, we make something truly magical.
Virgin Atlantic is still proudly flying, creating the same fabulous flight experience we’re famous for, and we’re busily laying the foundations for a profitable future.
We know that the right people are key to creating success – so we’re looking for some brilliant individuals to help us achieve our vision. Perhaps that’s you? We’d love to find out.

Further your career with Virgin Atlantic
As a First Officer with Virgin Atlantic you will be joining the UK’s only exclusively long-haul airline. Predominately you’ll be flying out of London Heathrow and London Gatwick (we do also have a base in Manchester) to exciting destinations such as New York, Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Johannesburg, Shanghai, Delhi, São Paulo, Barbados, Antigua and many more. Our pilots lead our operation every day, making the difference that our customers see and feel when they fly Virgin Atlantic.
We have one of the most technologically advanced aircraft fleets around, so you’ll have the chance to fly an industry leading modern and efficient aircraft fleet of Airbus A330/ A350s or Boeing 787s. Our A350-1000 aircraft is more fuel efficient than other planes, with the new Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines generating 30% lower carbon dioxide emissions compared to Virgin Atlantic’s current 747-400 aircraft. And the A350-1000 is significantly quieter than the airline’s current planes – it will reduce the noise footprint at airports that Virgin Atlantic flies by 52%.
Career progression and benefits
At Virgin Atlantic, we aim to nurture amazing talent and create an inspirational experience that is inclusive and enables everyone to be at their best. That’s why we’ll guide you every step of the way as you progress from First Officer to Senior First Officer to Captain.
