Virgin Atlantic has announced four new routes today, three of which are headed to the Caribbean. These new nonstop flights will head to Montego Bay, Barbados, and Saint Lucia. Furthermore, the UK-based airline is going to operate an A330 from Edinburgh, flying both to Barbados and to Orlando.
Both new flights from Edinburgh will be operated twice weekly. The flights to Barbados will begin operating in December, while the flights to Orlando are set to start in April 2022 – probably due to the ongoing US travel ban. Edinburgh thus becomes the third UK city that Virgin Atlantic operates from.
The other routes that were added were three weekly flights from Manchester to Montego Bay, Jamaica (starting in November), and three weekly flights from London to St. Lucia (starting in December).
All of these flights will go on sale on August 18. Apparently, the flights to Saint Lucia will start at £462 (~€544) while flights to Jamaica start at £428 (~€504). Lastly, the new flights from Edinburgh are expected to cost £419 (~€494).
