Virgin Atlantic will restart transatlantic flights from Heathrow to Orlando and Las Vegas on 8th November.
Flights from Manchester to Orlando and New York will restart on the same day, owing to a “surge” in consumer demand, according to the airline.
It comes after the White House said last week that the United States will reopen to fully-vaccinated international travelers on the same date.
Heathrow and Manchester will each have daily flights to Orlando. The route is now the most booked throughout Virgin Atlantic’s global portfolio, indicating “a pent-up desire for families and adrenaline seekers to enjoy the charm of Florida’s premier destination,” according to the carrier.
From 8th to 14th November, Virgin will use its newest and largest aircraft, the Airbus A350-100, on its Heathrow-Orlando service.
A Boeing 787-900 will fly from Heathrow to Las Vegas on a daily basis. An Airbus A330 will resume daily service from Manchester to New York.
The airline’s chief commercial officer, Juha Jarvinen, said: “Our customers are ready to begin their US adventures, whether it’s to enjoy the magic of Orlando or to party the night away in Las Vegas, therefore it’s only right that we offer them the opportunity to fly as soon as we can.
“I’m delighted that our Orlando and Las Vegas services will begin on November 8, the same day transatlantic travel reopens.
“We can’t wait to transport customers to our favourite destinations in the US safely once more.”
For new bookings, Virgin Atlantic offers unlimited date and flight adjustments at no additional cost. Passengers have until 30th April 2023 to reschedule.
