VIRGIN Atlantic’s first domestic flights service connecting Scotland and Manchester to London Heathrow will be known as Little Red.

Sir Richard Branson’s airline will start four-times-a-day Manchester flights on 31 March and from 5 April a six-daily Edinburgh service will start, followed by thrice-daily Aberdeen flights from 9 April.

Virgin acquired take-off and landing slots at Heathrow following the takeover of carrier bmi by British Airways’ parent company IAG.

Passengers on these flights will be able to tuck into specially-made “plane” crisps from Tyrrells and, on the Scottish services, Irn-Bru.
