Virgin Atlantic to reduce number of UK flights to Orlando - including from London Heathrow Airport

There will be several route changes by the airline next year

Virgin Atlantic is to make alterations to several of its long distance routes next year, including several which fly to and from its London hub at Heathrow Airport.

The airline has announced it will reduce its flight schedule from Heathrow to Orlando from 14 flights per week down to 1 during May and June 2023.

The airline has also confirmed that it will be increasing the number of flights on several of its routes to and from Heathrow.

This includes an increase from seven to 10 flights a week from Heathrow to Miami as well as seven flights a week as opposed to four on its Austin route in May, June and September.

The change to the 2023 schedule also includes an increase in its Heathrow to Lahore services to four times a week and an increase in services from Heathrow to Miami.

A spokesperson said: “As customer demand continues to return strongly after the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re making adjustments to upcoming flying schedules to support the ramp up of our operation and to reflect changes in customer demand outlook.”

Virgin Atlantic apologises for 2023 schedule change disruption

Virgin Atlantic has also apologised to customers for any disruption the change causes due to the changes to the 2023 schedule, and provided information on how customers can sort their booking.

A spokesperson told Travel Weekly: “We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask customers not to call our contact centre,  assuring affected customers they will be contacted in the coming days with their options.

“Where a flight is cancelled, customers have the choice to request a voucher or full refund. If re-routing is a suitable and available option, we can also rebook customers on alternative services. Those who booked via a third party such as a travel agent should contact them directly for their options.”
