Virgin Atlantic unveils new services to Maldives and Turks and Caicos

Virgin Atlantic will offer new services to the Maldives and Turks & Caicos islands in 2023.

The Maldives service will start on October 22, 2023, operating three times a week from Heathrow during the winter season. Tickets go on sale on November 30.

A year-round twice-weekly Heathrow service to the Turks & Caicos will begin on November 15, 2023, with tickets on sale from January 11, 2023.

This new destination is the latest addition to Virgin’s Caribbean portfolio which follows new flying to the Bahamas in December 2021, St Vincent and the Grenadines in October 2021 and a return to St Lucia.

Both new routes will be operated on the airline’s Boeing 787-9 aircraft, offering 31 Upper Class, 35 Premium and 192 Economy Delight, Classic and Light seats.

Fares will be announced at a later date.

Juha Jarvinen, chief commercial officer at Virgin Atlantic, said: “The Maldives has always been an incredibly popular destination for Virgin Atlantic Holidays customers, which is why we couldn’t wait to give them the opportunity to travel to the idyllic location in style onboard Virgin Atlantic aircraft.

“We’re delighted to begin flying to the Turks & Caicos islands, as we continue to grow our Caribbean portfolio, offering more choice for our customers to explore these beautiful islands and enjoy some winter sun.”
