“As a new airline we’ve been able to use the latest in technology, design and sustainable practices to enhance the traveler experience, and we hope elevate the journey beyond just getting from Point A to Point B,” said David Cush, President and Chief Executive Officer of Virgin America.
“We’re proud to unveil a new home that similarly reinvents the travel experience for the modern flyer – and that also reflects the innovative, forward-looking spirit of our San Francisco home.”

A new Virgin America A320 aptly named “My Other Ride is a Spaceship” flies beside the first commercial space flight system – Virgin Galactic’s WhiteKnightTwo (WK2) (and SpaceShipTwo) – over San Francisco on April 6, 2011. The special inaugural flights were the first to touch down at San Francisco International Airport’s new next generation Terminal Two (T2) and mark the spaceship’s first landing at an international airport. Flight guests onboard “My Other Ride is a Spaceship”, including Sir Richard Branson, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and space pioneer Buzz Aldrin, caught a bird’s eye view of aviation history and helped raise funds for Virgin Unite’s aviation education funds.

“Thanks to the vision of SFO and Gensler, T2 represents the evolution of the airport guest experience and serves as a model for sustainable design. Just as Virgin America now has guests who say ‘I wish my flight was longer,’ T2 is a place travelers will actually enjoy visiting and spending time in.”

Virgin America
is known for its modern and stylish design, including its signature cabin moodlighting (which transitions based on outside light and is intended to soothe and relax guests and even gradually awaken them on red eye flights) and white kiosk check-in tables and ticket/gate counters with a concierge desk look and feel.

T2 offers living room-like gate spaces, imaginative lighting and world-class art installations.

In line with the airline’s touch-screen entertainment, food on-demand, power outlets and fleetwide WiFi, T2 offers high-tech amenities like free WiFi and elevated laptop work stations with power.

Similar to Virgin America’s own in-flight menus (which were named best in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure), T2 offers the best in local and organic dining.

Lundberg Design additionally collaborated with Virgin America on its teammate lounge, baggage offices and other T2 areas, which are designed to achieve the highest possible LEED® Platinum-certified status.


Notable design features and amenities within T2:

• Similar to Virgin America’s lighting, seating and design, T2’s “Recompose” area acts as a stress-reducing oasis post-security.

• Virgin America’s T2 gates are designed as open, beautiful living room-like spaces in view of dining areas.

• Virgin America T2 spaces feature mood-lit ticket counters and gates that model the airline’s distinctive cabin moodlighting.

• Virgin America’s T2 counters offer a sleek, user-friendly and modern aesthetic, with low-profiles that remove barriers between agent and guest and white kiosk check-in tables with touch-screen panels and a concierge desk look-and-feel.

• In line with Virgin America’s own award-winning food, T2 features Slow Food® concessions with a focus on locally-produced menus – including venues from chefs Cat Cora and Tyler Florence and California favorites like Pinkberry.

• Massive art installations are featured throughout the terminal – even in the baggage claim area.

• Laptop work-tables and plug-in stations, elevated work counters and free WiFi throughout.

• Interactive children’s play area.


T2’s sustainable build and design:

• T2 aims to be the first LEED® Gold-certified airport terminal in the U.S.

• Design elements include the vast utilization of natural light, modern ventilation systems that require 20% less energy and skylights and clerestories which bring daylight into the space and significantly reduce electricity usage.

• ‘Hydration Stations’ allow flyers to fill reusable water bottles past security, reducing volume of waste.

• The first airport dining program in the country to recruit Slow Food® vendors, T2 will feature organic food vendors and require use of compostable utensils/containers.

• Contractors recycled 90% of construction debris from the project. SFO requires ongoing source separation of all recyclable solid waste to enable the attainment of 90% recycling by 2020.

• Preferential parking for hybrid cars.

With the airline’s additional investment in sustainable design, Virgin America’s T2 office spaces and “Virgin Village” crew lounge are designed to achieve the highest possible LEED® Platinum-certification.

Below are the additional steps the airline has taken:

• Use of “Greenguard” certified woods and USGS-approved furniture sourcing.

• Lighting is 35% more efficient than California Energy Codes, with night/day motion sensors.

• Energy efficient heating, cooling and ventilation with occupancy sensors in Virgin America rooms.

• All computers and office equipment are 100% EnergyStar certified.

• Green building materials include high-recycled content, locally-manufactured case goods and other products, particle board made from agricultural waste and wood certified to standards of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

• Use of low-emitting VOC paints, coatings and building products.

• Air filtered by the top-quality filtration system in the base building.

Virgin America’s Airbus A320 Family aircraft feature custom-designed seating, mood-lit cabins, outlets, fleetwide WiFi and touch-screen entertainment platforms with 30 films, live TV, Google Maps, videogames and an on-demand menu – so flyers can order a meal from their seat any time in-flight.

The carrier’s new fleet is up to 25% more fuel and carbon efficient than the average flying domestically.

About Virgin Galactic


Virgin Galactic is on track to be the world’s first commercial spaceline.

 
 
The new Spaceship (VSS Enterprise)
and Mothership (VMS Eve) are both being developed for Sir Richard Branson ’s Virgin Galactic by Mojave-based Scaled Composites.

Founded by Burt Rutan, Scaled developed SpaceShipOne, which in 2004 claimed the $10m Ansari X prize as the world’s first privately developed manned spacecraft.

Virgin Galactic’s new vehicles share much of the same basic design but are being built to carry six customers on sub-orbital space flights, allowing an out-of-the-seat zero gravity experience and offering astounding views of the planet from the black sky of space.

The VSS Enterprise test flight program will continue through 2011, prior to commercial operations which will be based at Virgin Galactic’s future headquarters at Spaceport America in New Mexico.
