We totally called it. This makes us two for two on nailing VA destinations before they are officially announced -- San Diego and now Seattle. Actually, a huge assist on this one goes to Jaunted member herz, who stuck with the VA to Seattle call out, even after SEA airport spokesman Perry Cooper denied that Virgin to SEA was a done deal. Oh, and to all you unnamed email tipsters and accidental tipsters -- hats off to you as well.
Port of Seattle Commission President John Creighton said:
Virgin America will offer Puget Sound travelers an additional airline choice with some unique, tech-driven features and flight amenities. The addition of Virgin America to Sea-Tac Airport will help further economic development and tourism for the Seattle region and the state.
This will be the first new destination under new Virgin America President and Chief Executive Officer David Cush.
