Virgin America announces California to PHL service, flight raffle

    Philadelphians now have one more way to get to and from California.

    Virgin America has announced new routes, bringing services from Los Angeles and San Francisco airports to Philadelphia.

    The airline is hoping amenities like wifi, touch-screen entertainment and comfy seats will draw passengers looking to leave behind the bigger names in air travel. And if that doesn’t work, it’s using a familiar face and a giveaway.

    Greenman, seen in the video below, wants travelers to know the airline will give roundtrip flights and an “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fan pack. You’ll find those details on Virgin America’s Facebook page.

     

    Three daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport start April 4, and two daily nonstop flights from San Francisco International Airport begin April 10.
