Virgin Atlantic has unveiled a new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge plane wrap on one of its Boeing 747 aircraft, which took to the skies on 25 September. The themed plane will now transport holidaymakers from London Gatwick Airport to Orlando, Florida, where they will be able to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
The plane, which will be known as ‘The Falcon’ – showcases Millennium Falcon – the iconic spaceship once owned by Han Solo. Virgin Holidays has also launched ‘The Ultimate Virgin Holidays Star Wars Experience’ – a curated themed holiday experience to Walt Disney World Resort, which will take off between 15-22 February 2020.
Joe Thompson, managing director of Virgin Holidays said: “We are proud to see ‘The Falcon’ take flight, featuring the iconic Millennium Falcon, from the much-loved Star Wars saga, as it wings passengers to experience the thrilling, new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Over the last three decades, we have taken millions of British holiday-makers to enjoy the magic of Disney and we know that so many of our customers have been excited about planning their trip to experience this new land.”
