Jamaica Welcomes Virgin Atlantic Increased Flights from London to Montego Bay

Jamaica has welcomed news of Virgin Atlantic increasing frequency on its non-stop direct route from London Heathrow to Montego Bay.

The airline will – from March 31 – fly the route 7 times a week, rather than 5 which is currently the case.

Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, 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.” 

With this increased frequency, Virgin Atlantic will now offer daily service between London and Montego Bay, adding an extra 258 seats twice weekly. The extended schedule aims to cater to the diverse needs of visitors seeking direct access to Jamaica’s breathtaking landscapes, vibrant culture, and warm hospitality. 

“The additional nonstop 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,” Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism added.
