****UPDATE: the carrier’s website is now back up and running – a spokesperson for Virgin Atlantic said that the site “was down for a short period of time this morning due to a minor technical issue”.****

Virgin Atlantic’s website is currently down (as of 0900 this morning, January 30).

Business Traveller has been unable to access the site for the past hour, and has contacted the carrier for comment.

Users of Virgin’s V-flyer forum are also reporting similar issues, including travellers looking to check in for their flights.

The disruption follows issues with Virgin’s Flying Club members being unable to access their accounts for a period late last year, caused by an IT systems upgrade.

At the time Virgin apologised for the problems, stating that it was “monitoring our systems and resolving issues as they arise”.
