Award-winning airline brings more flights to PSP just in time for winter getaways, welcomes first flight with ribbon cutting. First-ever nonstop flight from JFK to PSP touches down.
Virgin America, the award-winning U.S. airline, celebrates the launch of its new Saturday nonstop seasonal service to Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) with a ribbon cutting at the PSP gate by Palm Springs Mayor Pro Tem Chris Mills, Virgin America CFO, Peter Hunt along with other Palm Springs city officials. As the only California-based airline, Virgin America will continue to bring its unique brand of low-fare competition to the PSP market with a new Saturday nonstop flight from JFK to PSP – the only nonstop flight offered from the New York City area to Palm Springs. The new nonstop flight will add to Virgin America’s seasonal daily connecting flights schedule from JFK to PSP and its seasonal daily nonstop schedule from SFO to PSP.
Palm Springs and the other eight cities that make up the Greater Palm Springs region are the ultimate destination for outdoor adventure, arts and culture, gaming and entertainment. Known for its reputation as “Hollywood’s Playground,” a desirable desert climate, world-class resorts and golfing, shopping, special events and modern and mid-century architecture, the region has welcomed the arrival of hip boutique hotels and landmark events like the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
As one of the few U.S. airlines adding jobs in the past five years, Virgin America has created more than 2,600 new jobs since its launch.
The airline has also launched a flyaway promotion through December 21 where a lucky winner in San Francisco and New York will score a free getaway onboard Virgin America to Palm Springs and with three friends for two nights at the Saguaro Palm Springs.
