Virgin America announced on Tuesday that it will offer one daily nonstop flight from both Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Orlando International Airport (MCO) starting on October 6.

“We’re pleased to open sales for MCO today and to bring our low-fare, award-winning service to Orlando beginning October 6,” said Diana Walke, Vice President of Planning and Sales at Virgin America.

Virgin originally intended to begin its service to Orlando on August 19, but was pushed back due to a delay in its leased aircraft deliveries. Connecting flights will also be available to Orlando from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).

“Orlando is an important year-round leisure, convention and business travel destination and we look forward to introducing our unique product to travelers on these routes.”

Virgin America was launched in 2007 as a U.S.-controlled, owned and operated airline. It is headquartered in California. It is one of the fastest growing start-up U.S. airlines of all time and currently employs over 1600 people.
