Virgin America gets final approval to begin operations in U.S.

19 May 2007

The U.S. department of transportation has finally given approval for Virgin America Airlines to start its services as soon as it secures necessary safety clearances. The department has been reviewing the case for the last 18 months in view of shares held in the company by British entrepreneur Charles Bronson.

The department has granted the approval, which was initially rejected in December 2006, after the company assured regulators it would adhere to the legal norm of restricting ownership of domestic airlines to U.S. citizens.
