Virgin Atlantic is to resume its popular flights to the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Grenada this month.
Flights to Antigua and Grenada restart on Monday 26 October, with two flights a week planned for each island, joining the four weekly flights to Barbados and twice weekly flights to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Both Antigua and Grenada are currently included in the Foreign Office’s travel corridor list.
Services from Heathrow to Boston launch on 21 November and Lahore, Islamabad and Cape Town routes are scheduled to commence in December. More routes will be added in 2021 "in line with customer demand".
Antigua and Barbuda have recently launched a Nomad Digital Residence (NDR) Programme designed for those who can meet the requirements of their employers, clients and colleagues while working abroad. Those who take advantage of the NDR, can live, and move freely through Antigua and benefit from the islands’ no personal income tax status stay for up to two years.
Virgin Atlantic has recently expanded its onboard offering to increase its food and drink choice for customers "whilst continuing to ensure the services are designed to limit interaction", with food prepared in a Covid-safe, monitored environment.
In premium and economy customers have a choice of three hot meals as part of the “Fly safe Eat Well” meal box, which also incorporates cheese and biscuits and a dessert pot.
Upper Class customers will receive a choice of three hot meals, dessert, cheese plate and crackers and a ciabatta roll, delivered to their seat on a tray.
Customers can also experience an expanded alcohol service to include champagne, miniature liquors and mixers as well as beer and wine in Upper Class and a choice of beer, wine and miniature liquors and mixers in economy and premium.
