Virgin Atlantic postponed flight to São Paulo

The increase in flight offerings by British Airways comes as Virgin Atlantic has suspended its debut in South America.

Richard Branson’s airline had announced a daily flight between London and São Paulo for 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic postponed the plans.

In June 2023, Virgin rescheduled the flight to begin in May 2024, however, a new postponement pushed the inauguration to 2025 on a date not yet revealed.
