Virgin Holidays revealed its magical new aircraft design at Gatwick Airport this week as the company celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The plane pays homage to the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is due to open in Orlando, Florida on June 18th, with the theme park’s logo emerging from a cloud of smoke emblazoned on the side.
Virgin flights from London to Orlando began in 1985 and 100,000 holidaymakers travelled to the popular holiday destination from Gatwick Airport, Manchester Airport and Glasgow Airport with the holiday company last year alone.
Over the past 25 years the company estimates that it has conducted more than 10,000 return flights to the state.
When it opens next month, visitors to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be able to visit some of the famous shops in the book, including Zonko’s joke shop and Dervish and Banks in the village of Hogsmeade.
There will also be a replica of the Hogwarts castle, featuring the ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
