LONDON: Virgin Atlantic Airways is studying the possibility of buying all of British Airways' (BA) Concorde supersonic aircraft, which are to be retired later this year.
Virgin Atlantic said it would ask for BA's operational figures and, if it could make a success of the Concorde, it would ask to buy the fleet for the price of £1.
“Having examined the figures, Virgin Atlantic, with its lower cost base, believes it can make a success of it. e will be asking British Airways to give us the planes for the same price that they were given them for – £1,” a company statement said. – Reuters
