Virgin Atlantic has a new home in Scotland. Launching on the 5th December and on sale from 18th August, Edinburgh’s new Caribbean flights will operate twice weekly on an Airbus A330.  As the gateway to the highlands, the new services from Edinburgh Airport will provide travellers from Florida and the Caribbean with a direct link to Scotland’s fascinating historic capital city, alongside easy access to the country’s dramatic, world-famous countryside.   Similarly, Barbados offers easy onward connections to the wider Caribbean, with seamless links to Grenada, St Vincent and Tobago available with Virgin Atlantic. From 31st October, Virgin Atlantic will increase its services to the much-loved island of Barbados. Flights from Manchester to Barbados will increase from three times a week to five times and from Heathrow, daily flights will increase to 11 times a week.  Virgin Atlantic will also be increasing its Heathrow services to Jamaica, from three flights up to daily.

Virgin Atlantic will launch thrice-weekly seasonal winter services from Manchester Airport commencing on 6th November on the airline’s Airbus A330-300 aircraft boasting 31 Upper Class, 48 Premium and 185 Economy Delight, Classic and Light seats.
