Bonjour and welcome to Airbus Virtual!
We are a virtual airline/group that specialises on operating and certifying all Airbus aircraft within Infinite Flight. In contrast to a regular virtual airline, Airbus Virtual also focuses on flight testing, delivery and ferrying flights around the world to our esteemed customer airlines. This brings a new level of excitement flying here!
Airbus Virtual started as a passion project by @PlaneLife2018 and @Larerraven, our current CEO and COO respectively. They envision maximising flexibility and diversity of flights that can be flown by the pilots, which leads to the establishment of the VA. At present, the leadership team also involves our routes manager @Lion_50 and chief pilot @Lotus. Together, they are determined to deliver the best possible experience to the pilots.
Airbus Virtual operates out of a number of bases with different functions and objectives, though the headquarters remain at Toulouse Blagnac Airport, France. More details below:

Other benefits such as feeder flights and multipliers are also available in selected ranks, where you may find more details in our flight handbook.

Airbus Virtual operates a large range of aircraft offered by Infinite Flight. Non-Airbus aircraft are also available through our codeshare partners, thereby increasing our variety for the pilots.
|Airbus Mainline||Airbus Codeshare (including all Airbus aircraft)|
*Airbus Lite, made for non-pro subscribers will be able to fly A321 and A380 aircraft in designated regions.
As a worldwide leading manufacturer, Airbus has a dominant presence in major areas around the world. Our delivery flights may bring us as far as New Zealand, while our chartered operations complement our pilots to more destinations, including Antarctica - this allows us to be the first VA to offer multiple routes to all continents. Undeniably, our codeshare partners also play a big role in helping us to connect more than 95% of all countries and regions in the world.
