Virgin's loan notes secured on Heathrow landing slots
- "Virgin Atlantic Airways secured an impressive £220m senior secured note transaction using the airline's [rights to use] take-off and landing slots at London Heathrow Airport. It is the first time in European air travel history that airport slots have been leveraged in this way.
- Moody's provided a private rating for the senior notes, which lent further credibility and confidence to investors. The deal attracted interest from blue-chip investors as well as long-term pension funds."
