Virgin Atlantic Flights To Continue Through Lockdown


The Antigua and Barbuda Ministry of Tourism and Tourism Authority are delighted to confirm that Virgin Atlantic will continue its services to and from the United Kingdom. The airline will maintain its twice weekly passenger flights through to November 21st with a weekly Saturday service thereafter until the end of the UK’s national lockdown. The twice weekly flights will arrive on Wednesdays and Saturdays from London Heathrow to Antigua and Barbuda V. C. Bird International Airport. The flights will then reduce to a weekly Sunday service where the flight will overnight and depart the next day.

The news of the continued service comes after a series of successful meetings between senior officials from the UK carrier, a team of tourism officials lead by the Honourable Charles “Max” Fernandez, and representatives from the local hotel private sector organisation the ABHTA.

Antigua and Barbuda has successfully retained its place on the UK government’s quarantine exemption list and maintaining airlift during the UK’s lockdown for ‘business and essential travel’ was a priority to provide connectivity to the island itself but also as a gateway for the rest of the Caribbean during this uncertain time.

    • Good news for who?what don’t you understand about a lockdown you think .uk is just doing it to stop people from coming to Antigua it means covid is out of control again in the uk and soon will be in the Caribbean.

      • Fedup, I want to know good news for who also. Who dont hear will feel. Merry Christmas. This cold season will be a telling time.

  1. I guess the people in health will have to clone themselves. So, lets get the uk tourists in as they incubate, and since the fatality for covid is low, when granny and grandpa start to suddenly croak, we will not need to worry about social security late pay.

  2. @Fedup
    ….yes, and right after that the sky will fall and then we will all be consumed by dragons and end up “lakka darg in a margue”….. and then the Final Coming. Oh dearie me!!!

    • Mr 1st your so right but yes the Dragon have a name it’s called covid 19 and it is real not fictional. And yes oh dearie us all.
