Virgin Atlantic has announced plans to launch flights from London Heathrow to Barbados this winter. The twice-weekly service (Tuesday and Saturday) will launch on December 12, and will be operated by a three-class A330 aircraft configured for 185 economy seats, 48 in premium economy, and 33 in Upper Class. The new winter seasonal route will be the only direct link between London Heathrow airport and Barbados – Virgin currently flies from both Gatwick and Manchester to the Caribbean island, while British Airways operates from Gatwick.
It is now even easier to reach this beautiful island, from the rum-swilling buccaneers and colonial sugar barons of old, to the modern day jet set playing cat-and-mouse with the paparazzi on board their luxury yachts, Barbados has long enticed adventurers and pleasure seekers to its platinum sands. Today this tiny island in the eastern Caribbean offers everything from magnificent, tranquil beaches to dramatic cliffs, rugged rolling hills, superb restaurants and picture-perfect golf courses. And it’s particularly popular with British travellers; the quaint little villages, with their churches and cricket pitches, are rather redolent of home, albeit with the occasional monkey in the trees to remind you that you’re in the tropics.
