The year-round warm weather with just a three-hour time difference is set to appeal to couples and families alike. The relaunch of the popular route will complement Virgin Atlantic’s two other newly announced premium destinations – the Maldives and Turks and Caicos.

Set upon miles of glorious golden sand, Dubai’s spectacular resorts will allow customers to luxuriate in five-star glamour, while still within reach of the bright lights of the city. The nearby desert offers a treasure trove of adventure from camel rides to sand boarding and dune bashing. Perfect for guests of all ages seeking new experiences.

Party in Las Vegas

Virgin Atlantic has also announced an expansion to its services from Manchester Airport, the airline’s home in the North. New services to Las Vegas will commence in summer 2024 and are set to provide passengers in the North West and beyond a wider offering of leisure flights, which also include Orlando and Barbados.

The new Manchester service will operate on one of Virgin Atlantic’s newest aircraft, the Airbus A350-1000 aircraft boasting 16 Upper Class, 56 Premium, and 325 Economy Delight, Classic, and Light seats as well as the airline’s unique social space – The Booth. The new area, designed for Upper Class passengers, is perfect for travellers to enjoy afternoon tea together, a spot of wine tasting or simply catching up as they cross the Atlantic. Fares start from £770 per person in Economy.

Island hop in the Caribbean

Virgin Atlantic is also launching inter-island flying in the Caribbean, making a variety of incredible destinations even more accessible.
