1 Air Virtual Celebrates 2 Months of Flying

According there COO, Oliver Cooksey; “We have seen a high amount of demand on our routes operating out and into Bristol and this will allow us to open more routes to new destinations in the future. The only problem where facing at this time is the high level of un-employment in the UK which has harmed most businesses. It is this which is slowing down the expansion of our airline so we will be doing a large recruitment campaign over the next few months”.
