Virgin Sun Airlines, branded as Virgin Sun, was a British scheduled and charter airline owned by the Virgin Group, formed in 1998. The airline's main destinations were the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands.
Virgin Sun's main bases were Manchester Airport and London Gatwick Airport.〔(Where Virgin Sun Flew. )〕
Virgin Sun was created as a charter airline in May 1999, operating from Gatwick and Manchester terminal 2, leasing 2 Airbus A320-200 aircraft.〔(Virgin sun opening )〕
After a successful launch and first summer season, Virgin Sun then received a third A320-200 and its first and only Airbus A321-200 the following year.
The airline was known for its ground breaking approach to inflight service being the first UK charter airline to ditch the traditional style meal for something more 'fun' in its first year of operation. After boarding all guests were offered a can of SeaBreeze cocktail (or a non-alcoholic version). After take off, Outbound guests were served with a meal of a bacon /veggie sausage sandwich on breakfast flights or hot dog / veggie sausage dog and potato wedges - prepared individually by the cabin crew with onions / sauces and an individual slice of chocolate gateau as a dessert. Inbound the meal was a jacket potato with a choice of 3 toppings and again a gateau dessert.
Tea and coffee was served in coffee shop style disposable cups with the option of a 'squirty cream' topping.
Downroute, customers were offered an ice lolly as they boarded.
