Virgin Atlantic continues to double down on its strategy pertinent to Barbados as they plan to add more flights from January 2024 from there and around the islands.
As per The Trinidad & Tobago Guardian, such plans were revealed, which highlights how the airline is hitting the ground running in the Caribbean from the start of next year.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Virgin Atlantic To Offer 24 Weekly Flights to Barbados…
For the Barbados market, Virgin Atlantic will upgrade flights from January 8, 2024 to double daily from London Heathrow and four weekly from Manchester.
It is also understood that three flights per week will come to the airport from Grenada and another three from St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Speaking to the local paper was Hannah Swift, the Caribbean Country Manager at Virgin Atlantic who said the following:
“It’s so fantastic that this winter, Barbados will receive up to 24 flights per week from the UK and inter-regionally.”
“Barbados is such an important hub for us throughout the Caribbean, this just further supports our commitment to the destination”.
“We celebrated 25 years of flying to Barbados this year, and this just goes to show, the partnership between Virgin Atlantic and Barbados goes from strength to strength.”
It remains clear that more passengers are wanting to travel to the Caribbean over the winter period, with this working well to the favour of the airline but also to the surrounding communities as well. All eyes will be on how these new flights perform.
