BURLINGAME, Calif. — Virgin America has awarded a two-year contract to Mission Linen Supply, which will supply white linen napkins for passengers flying the new airline.
Virgin America serves San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Cancun, Dallas-Fort Worth, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Cabos, New York, Orlando, San Diego, Seattle and Washington D.C.
Mission Linen Supply plants in Chino and Sacramento, Calif., and in Dallas will provide the linen service for the California and Texas airports.
The Santa Barbara, Calif., linen and uniform company has partnered with other suppliers outside its five-state coverage to complete the service for Virgin America.
Since launching in August 2007, Virgin America has distinguished itself with customers and won industry awards by offering in-flight Internet, mood-lit cabins, custom-designed leather seats, power outlets, and a video touch-screen at every seatback, among other amenities, the airline asserts.
“Mission Linen Supply developed a program to complement and reinforce our brand,” says Andrew Stasium, Virgin America’s procurement manager in a press release, “and they have made it easy for us to continue to provide extras to our customers to make flying more convenient, productive and relaxing.”
“We are delighted to partner with a company such as Virgin America, well known for its innovation,” says Eric Stewart, Mission Linen Supply’s national accounts specialist. “We believe that Mission Linen holds the same high standards when it comes to customer service, and we look forward to delivering the quality that Virgin America customers are accustomed to.”
