Virgin Atlantic restarts more US, Caribbean routes

With the reopening of US borders for vaccinated travellers on the horizon, Virgin Atlantic is restarting Orlando, Las Vegas and San Francisco flights following an 18-month hiatus.

The popular Heathrow to San Francisco route resumed at the weekend, while Heathrow to Orlando services will restart daily operations in November. 

The Orlando route is currently the most booked across Virgin Atlantic's global portfolio.

The airline's Las Vegas flights will also restart from November, with daily flights on Boeing 787-900s.

It comes as bookings to the US surged by over 600% following President Biden's announcement that fully vaccinated visitors from the UK will be allowed to enter from November.   

Additionally, Virgin Atlantic is introducing two brand new routes, with London - St Vincent flights starting on 13 October and flights to The Bahamas taking off from 20 November. 

Virgin at Manchester Airport will restart flights to both Orlando and New York in November.

"I'm delighted our customers can take advantage of our expanded route network, as we fly our customers safely once again," said Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Virgin Atlantic.
