Virgin Galactic reopens ticket sales for commercial spaceflights

The next flight is scheduled to take off next month

Virgin Galactic said it is on track to commence commercial space flights in 2022, with individual tickets available from 324,000 pounds.

The space-tourism company received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration for a full commercial launch license in June – paving the way for eager spacefarers to purchase a ride to the stars.

Tickets are available in single seats as well as multi and full-flight packages, with “early hand-raisers” to be given first priority.

Chief executive Michael Colglazier says that the move to reopen ticket sales stems from a surge in consumer interest that followed successful spaceflights in May and July – the latter of which included owner Sir Richard Branson as a passenger.
