Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 6 November 2009

Virgin Atlantic will tomorrow launch its inaugural service between London Gatwick and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico will complement Virgin Atlantics strong presence in the Caribbean with existing flights to Barbados, Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada, Tobago, Havana and Montego Bay and Kingston in Jamaica.

The first flight will depart London Gatwick on Saturday 7 November, operated by a Boeing 747-400.

Nick Parker, Virgin Atlantic Country Manager for the Caribbean, said, "The Caribbean has remained a strong market for Virgin Atlantic since we first started flying there in 1998 and we are thrilled to be adding San Juan. Virgin Atlantic flies nearly two million passengers each year from London Gatwick and Puerto Rico will serve to increase this further, especially with many passengers connecting onto cruises operating within the Caribbean."

Flights from Gatwick depart on Saturdays at 09:25, arriving into San Juan at 16:05 the same day and departs on a Saturday from San Juan leaving at 18:05, arriving into London Gatwick at 08:35 the following morning.
