The theme plane, called & # 39; The Falcon & # 39 ;, transports vacationers from London Gatwick Airport to Orlando, Florida.
There they can experience Star Wars: Galaxy & # 39; s Edge, which was opened at Walt Disney World Resort last month.
Joe Thompson, director of Virgin Holidays, said: & We are incredibly proud to see The Falcon fly, with the iconic Millennium Falcon, from the beloved Star Wars saga, as it flies passengers to watch the exciting new Star Wars experienced: Galaxy Edge lands at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
& # 39; Over the past three decades we have brought millions of British holiday makers to enjoy the magic of Disney and we know that so many of our customers are excited about planning their trip to experience this new country. We hope that those who are lucky onboard The Falcon will enjoy their journey with us even more. & # 39;
Dave Napper, senior engineer at Virgin Atlantic, said: & # 39; It was a very exciting assignment to redesign our aircraft equipment to represent something as iconic as the Millennium Falcon and it is not something you have to do every day.
& # 39; We have many Star Wars fans within the company who have had the opportunity to get involved in some way, and we can't wait to see The Falcon leave. & # 39;
The plane transports vacationers from London Gatwick Airport to Orlando, Florida, where they can visit Star Wars: Galaxy & # 39; s Edge at Walt Disney World Resort
