The airline's new automated service lets people check departure and arrival information.

Virgin Atlantic have launched a new automated Twitter account that replies to a traveller’s tweet about a specific flight and gives them real-time departure and arrival information. The tool is great for passengers wanting to get a quick update on their flight status, or friends and family wanting to know when someone is due to touch down.

To check Virgin Atlantic flight times on Twitter, simply tweet @VAAInfo followed by the flight number and departure date, and you will shortly receive a response with the up-to-date information. Fergus Boyd, head of E-commerce, said:
