Departure Date was a film made aboard Virgin airplanes - the three airlines from the US, Australia, and the UK, operating under the Virgin brand. It claims to be the first ever film “shot and edited at 35,000 feet in the air, covering 3 continents, 28,000 miles, and took 20 hours of filming”.
It is a story about taking control of your own destiny and following your heart, regardless of where it takes you to.
When Jake lets the girl of his dreams slip from his grasp, he experiences a heightened, magical awakening at 35,000 feet in the air with the help of the eccentric and soulful passengers that he comes into contact with. They ultimately help him take control of his destiny, win his soul mate and alter his life for the better.
The New Virgin Australia
Our airline underwent a huge transformation in 2011, becoming an entirely new airline with a brand new name, Virgin Australia. This change included a new look for our fleet of Boeing, Airbus, Embraer and ATR aircraft, both inside and out.
