New flights between Scottish airports and London have been announced.
Virgin Atlantic is planning on rolling out the services from Aberdeen and Edinburgh to Heathrow next summer.
On Tuesday, Virgin just announced a new service between Manchester and Heathrow as part of its first batch of domestic flights.
Chief executive Steve Ridgway announced the two Scottish routes on BBC Radio Scotland.
He said it was "important to keep Scotland connected to the rest of the world".
The move comes after BMI, which ran flights between the airports, was bought over by British Airways late last year, which forced it to sell the slots.
A Virgin Atlantic spokeswoman said the announcement on the new domestic routes was in response to BA's "market dominance" of Heathrow, the world's busiest airport.
She added: "We will bid to operate all of the remedy slots that BA has been forced to give up through the process. We have made clear our commitment to operate on much of bmi's existing network throughout.
"When BA holds 54% of the slots at Heathrow, the impacts of the deal are exacerbated. If there had been more room to grow there, we would have more opportunity to offer network competition to BA. Instead, we will fight hard to take on the remedy slots available in order to offer short-haul competition to BA for passengers flying from Scotland and elsewhere to London and beyond.
"The slots include services to Aberdeen and Edinburgh and Moscow."
