Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 6 May 2008

Following a review of its inflight beauty therapy services, offered in the air and on the ground, Virgin Atlantic is to expand the number of treatments offered at its flagship Heathrow Clubhouse from May onwards, leading to a 70% increase in treatments.

The airline's novel inflight service, however, will cease, with the airline saying that all its inflight beauty therapists will be offered jobs either as cabin crew or beauty therapists on the ground.

Lyell Strambi, Chief Operating Officer for Virgin Atlantic, said, "We continually review and adapt the product we are investing in to ensure it reflects what is most valued by our customers. As a result of the review we are increasing the number of beauty therapists working at the Heathrow Clubhouse leading to an increase of 70% more treatments everyday. We have expanded and improved our Clubhouses around the world and will also be continuing with our plans to offer spa facilities in our other Clubhouses.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the inflight beauty therapists for their contribution to Virgin Atlantic's success over the years - they have been fantastic ambassadors for the company. All of our inflight beauty therapists are being offered jobs as cabin crew, beauty therapists on the ground or roles elsewhere within the airline so they can continue to play an important role in the airline in the future."
