Virgin America adds NYC-Palm Springs nonstop for winter

Virgin America is adding nonstop service between New York JFK and Palm Springs, Calif.

The nonstop JFK-Palm Springs service will begin Dec. 22 and operate only on Saturdays during the winter season. But it’s significant for Virgin America as it’s only the second route for the airline that doesn’t involve its main bases of San Francisco and Los Angeles. New York JFK-Las Vegas is the other.
