Virgin Atlantic (VS/VIR) has released details of its planned flying programme for Summer 2021 with a total of 31 routes planned.

The majority of the flights (24) will operate from London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) while the rest will operate from Belfast (BFS/EGAA), Glasgow (GLA/EGPF) and Manchester (MAN/EGCC).

As previously announced, Virgin Atlantic will no longer operate from London Gatwick (LGW/EGKK).

In a statement Virgin Atlantic CCO Juha Jarvinen said: “As the COVID-19 crisis stabilises and demand gradually returns, we are looking forward to welcoming our customers back and flying them safely to their favourite destinations”

“We have taken the opportunity to pause, reflect and reshape our 2021 flying programme looking at efficiencies in our fleet and connectivity across our network, to ensure it is fit for the future, flying to the destinations we know our customers love to fly.”
