About the Event

What will flying look and feel like in the months and years ahead? What can consumers expect when traveling and booking accommodation in cities around the world? Will the industry recover from COVID-19?  

On August 20, MassChallenge is conveying some of the biggest brands in Europe, Israel, and the US to help us understand how the travel industry - one of the hardest hit during this current global pandemic - is adapting, preparing, and thinking about the future.

About Virgin Atlantic
Virgin Atlantic was founded by Sir Richard Branson more than 30 years ago, after he decided the UK aviation industry needed shaking up. He wanted to make air travel exciting, stylish and enjoyable again. So Virgin Atlantic was airborne on 22nd June 1984, with the first flight from London Gatwick to Newark in the US. 

Pioneering is at the heart of Virgin Atlantic. The airline is always innovating, with the customer at the heart of everything they do. It was the first airline to introduce Premium Economy and a bar in every Upper Class cabin, seatback TVs and a fully flatbed seat. It was even the first to fly a commercial aircraft using only biofuels.
