Virgin Atlantic is set to launch the first flight from Europe to St Vincent and the Grenadines from London Heathrow.
Virgin Atlantic is delighted to announce it will be launching the first flight from Europe to St Vincent with new services to the Caribbean island departing from London Heathrow.
The twice-weekly service will launch in summer 2021 and will operate on the airline’s A330-300 aircraft boasting 31 Upper Class, 48 Premium and 185 Economy Delight, Classic and Light seats.
St Vincent and the Grenadines as well as the Caribbean region as a whole, represent an extremely exciting opportunity for Virgin Atlantic. With many islands implementing rigorous Covid-19 protocols including testing before arrival and a short quarantine period for visitors, the islands are open for tourism and are a haven for travellers in search of sun.
The new service aims to capture the fast-growing demand to visit and reconnect with family and loved ones as well as sunseekers looking to explore an untouched corner of the Caribbean. With deserted white sand beaches, St Vincent offers the quintessential Caribbean getaway. The island also serves as the gateway to the Grenadines, a collection of 32 islands and cays full of yacht-filled harbours, chic private isles, coral reefs and dramatic volcanic landscapes offering the perfect escape for those in search of a luxury break, eco adventure, scuba diving or sailing voyage.
Flights to St Vincent are on sale from 24th November 2020.
