Virgin Atlantic gradually resumes routes


Virgin Atlantic is gradually re-establishing its route network as the demand for holiday flights returns.

Flights to popular tourist destinations Antigua and Grenada are set to restart this week joining Barbados and Montego Bay, Jamaica, on the Virgin destination schedule. 

The airline says that as countries around the world start to relax travel restrictions they will expand the network even further. Services from Heathrow to Boston will launch on 21st November and then flights to Lahore, Islamabad and Cape Town will commence in December.

“More routes will be added in 2021 in line with customer demand,” said a statement.

Flights to all the airline’s Caribbean destinations will be operated by Boeing 787 Dreamliners and will include in-flight Wi-Fi and complimentary food and drink.

Flights between Heathrow and Antigua will offer return fares from £381 per person, between Heathrow and Grenada from £438 per person. Both these destinations are currently included in the FCO travel corridor list allowing quarantine-free travel for customers.
