Virgin America has been named the “Top Domestic Airline” in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards readers’ survey for it’s ninth consecutive year.
The airline has won the award every year since the airline has been in service.
To celebrate and to thank its flyers, Virgin America launched a network-wide fare sale today, with Main Cabin fares out of Honolulu & Maui for as low as $199 (taxes and fees included, restrictions apply) in addition to an Elevate 50% bonus points offer.
Earlier this year, Virgin America launched nonstop flights from Los Angeles to both Honolulu and Maui, expanding on its service from San Francisco.
Virgin America received an official top score of 83.59 in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards domestic airline category, which evaluates all airlines for cabin comfort, in-flight service, customer service and value. The awards are recognized as one of the largest and most prestigious awards in the travel industry with over 200,000 readers participating in this year’s survey.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized as the ‘Top Domestic Airline’ by Travel + Leisure readers for the ninth consecutive year,” said David Cush, Virgin America President and CEO. “To be recognized in this way year-after-year – even as our competitors have tried to catch up with Virgin America, is a testament to our innovative onboard experience and the amazing guest service our teammates deliver every day. We are thankful to our loyal flyers and the more than 3,000 Virgin America Teammates who have worked so hard to change this industry for the better – by creating an airline that people love.”
Fare sale tickets must be purchased by 5 p.m. today for travel between Aug. 23, 2016, and Feb. 8, 2017.
Virgin America is also thanking flyers today with an Elevate points offer: Travelers can earn 50 percent more Elevate points on all routes when they book and fly now through Aug. 31, 2016.
