Virgin Atlantic to restart more international services

Following the news that the US would lift a ban on non-citizen travellers from the EU and UK, Virgin Atlantic announced it would resume more transatlantic services this winter.

Flights from Heathrow to San Francisco restarted on 2 October, while daily Orlando and Las Vegas services will resume in November.

Virgin Atlantic said it saw a 600 per cent increase in bookings to the US following President Joe Biden’s announcement in September.

In addition, the carrier will launch new flights to the Caribbean, including London-St Vincent on 13 October, The Bahamas on 20 November and St Lucia on 18 December.

Manchester airport will also see a boost to services as operations to Islamabad resume on 8 October followed by the Orlando and New York routes in November and Atlanta in December.

Virgin Atlantic will also launch its first international service from Edinburgh airport to Barbados on 5 December.

Juha Jarvinen, chief commercial officer, commented: “As global travel restrictions ease and connecting passengers with loved ones and colleagues becomes a reality, we’re looking forward to welcoming customers back on board and transporting them to a wider range of destinations.”
