Virgin Atlantic returns to Barbados, Antigua In October



After a three-month hiatus, Virgin Atlantic began welcoming customers back onboard Saturday with the first passenger flight to Barbados.

The flight, from London Heathrow, landed at Grantley Adams International Airport at 5 p.m.

To ensure the health and safety of customers and crew, Virgin Atlantic says it had implemented additional measures to offer peace of mind in the airport and when taking to the skies.

These include enhanced and thorough cleaning practices at check in, boarding gates and onboard including the use of electrostatic spraying of high-grade disinfectant in all cabins and lavatories before every flight, ensuring no surface is left untouched.

Corneel Koster, Chief Customer Officer, Virgin Atlantic commented: “We will always ensure that health and safety remain our number one priority, whilst keeping our signature Virgin spirit and I am proud of all our teams who have been working tirelessly to implement new measures and evolve our customer experience.”

As travel restrictions around the world start to relax and customer demand increases, Virgin Atlantic will add more routes back into its network, including Montego Bay, Antigua, Grenada and Tobago in October. Flights from Barbados to Manchester are also expected to start in October as part of our Winter 20/21 schedule.
