Virgin Atlantic Cements its Position in the Caribbean ✈️


Virgin Atlantic is set to soar to new heights after cementing its position in the Caribbean this past year and into the next. Virgin Atlantic celebrated 25 years of flying between Barbados and London, added new interisland flying, increased capacity, introduced flights to the idyllic islands of Turks and Caicos, and officially appointed Island Executive Services as the General Sales Agent.

From the 10th January, Barbados will receive double daily flights from London Heathrow for the first time ever, along with four weekly flights from Manchester. Alongside these flights, Virgin Atlantic’s inter-regional offering will bring three flights per week from Grenada and three from St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The Airline recently commenced flights to its eighth Caribbean destination, Turks and Caicos, which compliments an increase in flights to St Vincent and the Grenadines, which will operate thrice weekly in the winter season, with seats to St Lucia increasing by 33% since last year. Inter-Island flights from Barbados to Grenada or St Vincent give both local and international passengers more opportunities to explore the Caribbean and what the islands have to offer

Island Executive services will lead this expansion from the Caribbean. IES, which forms part of the Bernie Weatherhead Sun Group of Companies, is known for being a tourism and representation services leader. IES, based in Barbados, will run and operate the Hastings retail office and provide sales and ticketing services to the entire Caribbean region.
