Virgin Atlantic has announced plans to restart services from London Heathrow to Tobago this month.

The airline will resume twice-weekly services (Tuesdays and Saturdays) on January 29, operated by A330-300 aircraft.

The aircraft will be configured with 262 seats across three cabins (31 Upper Class, 48 Premium and 183 Economy).

Return fares start from £389 per person in economy, £985 in premium, and £2,023 in upper class. Note that the flights are not direct and include a 1 hour 15 minute stopover in Barbados.

Flight schedules are as follows:

VS177 departs Heathrow at 0910, arrives at Tobago at 1700

VS178 departs Tobago at 1850, arrives at Heathrow at 1000 (the next day)

Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Virgin Atlantic, commented:

“We are thrilled to be able to restart our much-loved services between London Heathrow and Tobago. With delicious food, amazing music and stunning views, we know our customers will love exploring this unique island destination.

“The Caribbean is the linchpin of Virgin Atlantic’s leisure portfolio and we’ve recently introduced a number of new destinations to our flying programme, including The Bahamas, St Lucia and St Vincent and The Grenadines. We can’t wait to fly our customers safely to our amazing Caribbean destinations throughout 2022.”

The airline increased its capacity to the Caribbean last summer, while also launching flights to St Lucia last December.
