Virgin Atlantic will resume flights to Antigua and Grenada from Monday, boosting its Caribbean capacity following the previous resumption of services to Barbados and Jamaica.

Two flights a week will operate to both Antigua and Grenada, which are currently including on the UK government’s travel corridor list and do not require quarantine on return.

Visitors to Antigua will need to show a negative PCR Covid test taken within seven days of arrival and are required to stay in a government-approved hotel.

Those flying to Grenada will also need to show a negative test on arrival and are required to take a second test four days after arriving if they wish to travel outside their hotel.

The addition of the two Caribbean islands comes as Virgin Atlantic gears up to further expand its network, with services from Heathrow to Boston due to resume on November 21 and routes to Lahore, Islamabad and Cape Town scheduled to commence in December.

The airline said more routes would be added in 2021 “in line with customer demand”.
