Alaska Airlines and Virgin America have unveiled their new Airbus A321neo recently delivered to Virgin America. The new airliner is painted with a special “Most West Coast” livery to celebrate the fact that both carriers cover the U.S. West Coast more than any other carrier.
N925VA was delivered on December 2, 2017 and has just adopted this special livery. N925VA has very small “Operated by Virgin America” titles near the nose leaving room for future painting with Alaska Airlines titles. Alaska Air Group serves 118 destinations with nearly 1,200 daily flights in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica and Cuba. This includes markets flown by Virgin America as well as Horizon Air, SkyWest Airlines and PenAir, which provide feed traffic to Alaska Airlines under capacity purchase agreements.
The Virgin America brand will be retired in 2019. The current Virgin America Airbus A319 and A320 fleet is expected to be repainted starting in early 2018. It will operate under Alaska group.
