About Virgin America

Virgin America is headquartered in Burlingame, close to San Francisco, and operates out of two main hubs in California, with one at San Francisco International Airport and the other at Los Angeles International Airport. The airline has also chosen to focus on the city of Dallas in Texas. Although the airline operates under the Virgin brand created and made famous by Sir Richard Branson, the British businessman is only a minority shareholder in it. Since its 2007 founding, the company's fleet has grown to more than 60 aircraft.

The airline offers low-cost United States domestic flights to more than 20 destinations and international flights to destinations in Mexico. Its Mexican destinations are Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and San Jose del Cabo. Some of its top U.S. routes are the Virgin America flights to Fort Lauderdale, Boston and New York City. It also has codeshare agreements with Virgin Australia, China Southern Airlines, Singapore Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines and Emirates.

Online check-in

There are three options for Virgin America check-in. The first and probably most popular is completing Virgin America check-in online using a ticket number or booking code. This option is available between 24 hours and 1 hour before a flight and allows passengers to print their own boarding card. The second check-in method is at the self-service kiosks provided at airports. To use these, passengers can either swipe the credit card they booked with or enter their booking confirmation number to print their boarding card. The third option is to check in at one of the airline's check-in counters. Here, passengers can check in by showing their ID.
