The Connected Virtual Airline


Here at ZIP VIRTUAL, we aim to make flying for a virtual airline a fun and easy experience. If you have never flown for a virtual airline before, or you're a veteran with thousands of hours, we'd love to welcome you on board!

We are a low pressure, friendly airline to fly for with no minimum hour requirements, realistic & dynamic schedules, wet lease operations and ad-hoc charters! With our extensive fleet, we are sure you'll be able to fly what you want, when you want, where you want.

Your flights will be electronically dispatched and logged through our website and ACARS which rates your flight performance.

With scheduled operations based out of London Luton, Newcastle and Rotterdam you can fly all over Europe, North Africa & the Middle East with our extensive fleet of aircraft.

With ZIP VIRTUAL you also get access to our sister airline, Citrus Airways. Based in San Diego, California, you can book and fly on the ZIP VIRTUAL website or you can find out more at

Have a look around our website for more information on ZIP VIRTUAL, you'll find everything from our interactive route map, to details of our inflight service.
