Virgin Atlantic has retired its final three Airbus A340-600s last week, the firm said that it has intended to ground this part of its fleet in 2020 but accelerated the schedule due to the impact of Covid 19 on passenger demand. Virgin said that A350 deliveries are now well underway, and the A330neo will join the fleet from late 2021 to complete the modernisation of its entire fleet over a ten-year period. The result will be one of the youngest fleets in the skies, halving our average aircraft age by 2024 to just 5.3 years and reducing Virgin’s carbon emissions
