Virgin Atlantic is adding extra capacity into Barbados this winter season, taking the total weekly flights in and out of the island up to 24 flights per week.
From January 8, 2024, 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.
The airline said this move further supports its commitment to Barbados as an Eastern Caribbean hub for customers and cargo, offering more flights per week for important cargo imports and exports.
“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,” said Hannah Swift, Caribbean Country Manager at Virgin Atlantic. “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.”
