Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays are operating a once-off Pride Flight from London to New York next year.

The June flight will be hosted by Tituss Burgess, Broadway musical actor and star of the Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It will be staffed entirely by LGBT+ pilots and cabin crew and will celebrate queer culture with special in-flight entertainment including a DJ, Drag Queen Bingo, Judy Garland singalong, inter-seat speed dating and special in-flight entertainment.

New York's tourism body NYC & Company and the Alliance for Downtown New York will help plan the flight. A portion of ticket sales from the flight will be donated to The Attitude Magazine Foundation to advance community Pride initiatives in the UK and fundraising and raffles will take place on board.
