Virgin Atlantic's South African flying programme update following red list removal



Share - Facebook - Twitter
Virgin Atlantic is expanding its portfolio of flights to South Africa, following the country’s removal from the Red List. Last week, bookings to the region soared by 150% in 24 hours as a result of the Government’s updated travel advice.

From 8 November, flights from London Heathrow to Johannesburg will increase from three times a week to a daily service. As South Africa’s capital city, not only does Johannesburg offer a gateway to some of the best safaris in the world, but its warm climate provides the perfect escape for Brits seeking some winter sun. Customers travelling in the airline’s Upper Class cabin, as well as Gold Card members, will also be able to take advantage of Virgin Atlantic’s award-winning Clubhouse at O.R Tambo international airport, which offers a relaxing space with tasty food and tempting cocktails.

The relaunch of the airline’s Heathrow to Cape Town service is also being brought forward, following a huge surge in customer demand. From 17 December, Virgin Atlantic will fly three times weekly to the destination famed for its breath-taking scenery and its world-famous wine region.

Virgin Atlantic’s South African services will both operate on the airline’s state of the art Boeing 787-9.
