Flybe heads into new era as VIRGIN CONNECT

Published on Thursday, 17 October 2019

Connect Airways CEO, Mark Anderson, was joined on 15th October by over 200 Flybe leaders for the long-awaited unveiling of the airline’s new name as it enters a new era as an independent company under the Virgin brand with the name, Virgin Connect.

This marks the beginning of Flybe’s journey into the future as part of the extended Virgin family with an overall re-brand scheduled to be completed next year. 

Virgin Connect will reflect the innovation and entrepreneurship of Virgin’s wider holiday brands, putting its customers at the heart and driving better value.  Providing a great customer experience will become its DNA and one of the many ways in which it will differentiate itself in the regional market. 

Mark said: “We are hugely excited by this milestone in our airline’s 40-year history. We will remain true to our heritage and reason for being, which is offering essential regional connectivity to local communities.

“At its heart, Virgin Connect will be passionately focused on becoming Europe's most loved and successful regional airline.  It will offer travel that is simple and convenient with the personal touch. Our customers will naturally expect the same exceptional travel experience as they do with other Virgin-related brands.  Whatever their reason for flying, we want our customers to feel loved and know we will always put their needs first in every decision we take.

“As part of the Virgin family, we now have a tremendously re-energised team. From here on in, we invite our customers, partners and the communities we serve to join us on every step of this exciting journey!”
