Virgin Atlantic has reinstated limited flights to Atlanta, Antigua, Barbados, Delhi, Grenada, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Lagos, Los Angeles, Miami, Montego Bay, Mumbai, New York JFK, Shanghai and Tel Aviv.

It also plans to launch new routes from London Heathrow to Islamabad and Lahore from December and the Caribbean island of St Vincent from June 2021.

Following the UK government’s decision to restrict international travel to those travelling for work and educational purposes, Virgin is likely to implement significant cancellations throughout November.

Due to the closure of Terminal 3 by Heathrow Airport, Virgin Atlantic has also temporarily relocated to Terminal 2. Virgin Atlantic has suspended all flights at London Gatwick for the foreseeable future.

All Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses worldwide have closed temporarily. The Upper Class Wing and “Revivals” lounge at London Heathrow is also closed.

Virgin Atlantic has permanently suspended Newark, and has also cancelled plans to launch Sao Paulo.

Virgin has, on Tuesday 25 August, secured creditor support for a financial support of £1.5 billion over the next 18 months. This comprises loans of £200m and £170m by Virgin Group and Davidson Kempner Capital Management as well as cash flow support by Delta and other parties through the deferral and reduction of amounts owed to them.
