VSbulletin COVID-19 Ongoing Travel Disruption - 1 July

It continues to be a dynamic time for international travel with ongoing travel restrictions to and from many of the countries we operate to.

We’re continually reviewing our flying programme and are delighted to let you know that following the updated ‘Green’ list, we will resume operating return passenger flights twice weekly between London Heathrow and Grenada (via Barbados) on 16 July. We will also be increasing our passenger flying from London Heathrow to Barbados 6 times weekly on 16 July.

As a result of the fast-moving travel environment, we continue to make schedule changes which will affect our Flying Programme for the coming weeks.
  • We are reducing frequencies on several routes, however to ensure impacted passengers can continue with their travel plans, they will be reprotected to the most suitable alternative departure.
  • Where a flight is cancelled, and due to limited operations to these destinations, there will be no reprotection option available, these sectors will appear as UN.
 
Bookings affected by these changes will be updated in your GDS on Saturday 3 July 2021. Our most up to date flexibility policy can be found here
We are also making some frequency updates for July and August on selected routes.

During July we plan to maintain operations on the following routes, subject to late changes:
