Virgin Atlantic has announced a series of network changes affecting routes to the Caribbean at London Gatwick.

These take effect from Monday 8 June 2020.

Virgin Atlantic’s route to Havana, currently twice weekly, will move from Gatwick to Heathrow.

Virgin will suspend services to St Lucia, currently three times weekly, after 21 years.

Flights from Gatwick to Antigua will increase from 3 to 4 times weekly. Flights to Grenada and Tobago that are currently routed through St Lucia will be routed through Antigua.

A revised timetable has not yet been released by Virgin.

With Virgin having suspended Cancun and already moved Las Vegas to Heathrow, this does leave it with a diminishing presence at Gatwick. Meanwhile Heathrow is growing with the planned return to Mumbai and launch of Sao Paulo.
