An announcement from Virgin Atlantic

There continues to be ongoing disruption to travel following the national lockdown in the UK and travel restrictions to and from many of the countries we operate to.

As a result of the dynamic and 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 and to ensure impacted passengers can continue with their travel plans, they will be reprotected to the most suitable alternative departure.
  • Unfortunately, we have also taken the difficult decision to cancel some flights. Because of limited operations to these destinations, there will be no reprotection option available, these sectors will appear as UN.


Flights from 24 February to 2 March 2021 will updated in your GDS on Saturday 13 February 2021.

The following flights are cancelled

We will continue to keep our website up to date with all the latest updates to schedule and travel restrictions.
Please check here  regularly for updates and here for specific flight status.  
We encourage agents with customers booked to travel over the next few days to check the official Government advice for the UK and the destination, before heading to the airport.
Please ensure the latest traveller contact information is available within the booking.


Arrivals to UK Testing
The UK Government has confirmed new mandatory testing requirements for all international arrivals to England, effective Monday 15 February 2021. 

Customers arriving in England will be required to have two PCR tests, on day 2 and day 8 of their 10-day quarantine. If arriving from a 'red list’ country, passengers will also need to quarantine in a government-approved hotel. 

It is vital that all arriving customers comply with these testing and quarantine requirements and complete the online Passenger Locator Form HERE before arriving at the departure airport. Please note, these UK Government public health measures will be enforced using financial penalties.

We will be incorporating this into our pre-departure communications to customers so they are aware of the mandatory requirement. Please ensure the latest traveller contact information is available within the booking so the latest instructions reach the traveller.

We encourage agents and travellers to regularly check here for more information.
