“Network Update – 26 May 2022
As we emerge from the pandemic we’ve had to make careful decisions about our network, with regular review of our flying schedules. We’re disappointed to confirm that due to the unique complexities of Cuban operations, we have taken the difficult decision to withdraw our plans for London Heathrow – Havana services. Our services scheduled to commence from 30th October 2022, operating as a Winter-only service until 24 March 2023, will be cancelled.
We sincerely apologise for disrupting customers’ plans to visit this vibrant and much-loved leisure destination. In recent years Virgin Atlantic operated the UK’s only direct scheduled flights to Havana, working closely with valued partners in the UK and Cuba to support holidaymakers to discover this vibrant and much-loved leisure destination . We will keep options under review to return to this unique part of the Caribbean in the future. As it stands, we do not have plans to operate the service in Winter 2023.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these changes. Our flexible booking policy allows customers to amend their flights, should they wish, with no change fees, all the way until 31 December 2023. If any re-routing is not suitable, affected customers can also choose to request a refund.”
