Virgin Atlantic will, from January 2024 offer three flights per week from St Vincent and the Grenadines to the United Kingdom.
At present, the airline offers flights on Wednesdays and Sundays to London, Heathrow.
The airline, in a release said it has also “reaffirmed its commitment to Barbados by adding extra capacity into Barbados this winter, taking the total weekly flights in and out of the destination to up to 24 flights per week.
“From January 8, Barbados will receive double daily flights, for the first time ever from London Heathrow, along with four weekly flights from Manchester. Alongside these flights Virgin Atlantic’s inter- regional offering will bring three flights per week from Grenada, and three flights per week from St. Vincent and the Grenadines.”
This move further supports Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to Barbados as an Eastern Caribbean Hub for customers and cargo, offering more flights per week for important cargo imports and exports, the release said.
