“He will be a crucial part of our growth ambitions in the coming months and years, particularly as we continue to grow our network through the launch of our domestic flying programme.”

Scott said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Virgin Atlantic team at such an exciting time in its development with the launch of its domestic flying programme and the ground breaking joint venture with Delta. I consider this to be one of the very best roles in the UK travel industry and I look forward to building on Virgin Atlantic’s already strong trade, corporate and industry body relationships to drive profitable growth.”
