Heathrow slots are required.
According to SkyNews, Virgin Atlantic is also interested in possible flights to the anti-crisis regional Flybe airline. Both carriers work together on a code agreement.
At Atlantic Atlantic, feeder services for long-term connections, in particular, were interesting, and the company "Frieder" airlines dropped again a few years ago with substantial losses, "Little Red".
One more aspect of Virgin Atlantic's interest is that Flybe has many slots in Heathrow. This long-haul airport's flight and landing rights can also be used to further expand the long-distance carrier.
Flybe franchisee recently retired from Stobart Eng Vienna. The connection between the Austrian capital and Southend was closed.
