Virgin Atlantic ramps up non-stop flights to Jamaica

Virgin Atlantic will expand its flight frequency to Jamaica from March 31 2024.

The airline will offer five to seven non-stop flights per week, all year round, from London Heathrow (LHR) to Montego Bay (MBJ). Operations on Saturday and Sunday will take place in low season.

Serviced by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, the daily flights are scheduled to depart from LHR at 8am and arrive at MBJ by midday. The move will see Virgin Atlantic add 258 seats twice weekly.

Hon Edmund Bartlett, the Minister of Tourism for Jamaica, said: “We are delighted with Virgin Atlantic’s decision to increase its direct flights to Montego Bay. This expansion not only aligns with the growing demand for travel to Jamaica but also underscores the confidence in our destination as the most visited Caribbean Island from the UK”. 

Donovan White, Director of Tourism for Jamaica, added: “The additional non-stop flights from London to Montego Bay are a testament to the enduring appeal of Jamaica as a premier holiday destination. We look forward to welcoming more tourists to experience the rich cultural tapestry and natural wonders that our island has to offer.”
