The new service comes as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved Virgin America's request to operate two additional daily flights to Newark.

In conjunction with the new service, Virgin America will also offer even more conveniently scheduled flight times for travelers heading between New York City and the West Coast. To celebrate the new services, Virgin America is offering a fare sale, with Newark flights starting from $149.

"Since our launch, we have been committed to increasing competition in the New York metropolitan area for travelers, with lower fares and service that allows them to stay connected, comfortable and productive coast-to-coast," said Virgin America's Director of Network Planning, Adam Green.

"We thank the Federal Aviation Administration for opening up this access, which will allow us to offer our guests even more choice when traveling from the East Coast with up to 25 flights departing the New York metropolitan area each day."
