Allow us to paint a picture... you're in Edinburgh or maybe Barcelona and you want to book a flight to sunny St Lucia or experience the highs of Orlando. Now you might be thinking, is this even possible with Virgin Atlantic? Well let us tell you - booking couldn't be simpler!

Read on to find out how we can help turn dreams into reality with Worldwide by easyJet. 

Bookings via Worldwide by easyJet are what we call self-connecting itineraries. In a nutshell this means:

  • The booking process won’t differ much from what you're used to. You'll have the option to choose from all possible itineraries. Once you've found something that works for you, go ahead and book it. 
  • You only have to pay once.
  • For added peace of mind, included in the price is GatwickConnects insurance which covers you in case of a missed connection.
  • You'll receive 2 separate tickets – one for your Virgin Atlantic flight and one for your easyJet flight. 
  • Bear in mind that you need to enter the UK and clear customs when self-connecting at Gatwick, which means you'll need to be eligible to enter the country. So make sure you have the relevant visas to hand.

How do I book?

Booking is really simple, head over to Worldwide by easyJet and book all your flights in one place.

Already booked on Worldwide by easyJet?

You'll need to check in for both flights individually. You should've received two booking references – one for your Virgin Atlantic flight and one for your easyJet flight. 

Please remember to check the baggage allowance on both airlines to avoid paying for additional baggage when you get to the airport.

Once you land at Gatwick you'll need to head straight through border control and collect your bags from the baggage hall (just as you would if Gatwick was your final destination). Once you have your bags you can check them into your onward flight at the 'GatwickConnects desk'. You'll find this desk at the exit of the baggage hall.

As soon as you've checked your bags in you can hop straight back upstairs and breeze through security to catch your flight.

You should have also received confirmation from GatwickConnects with an explanation on the self-connecting process at Gatwick.

If any of your times change please contact GatwickConnects and do not rebook any flights before you've spoken to them as your insurance might become invalid. The team will talk you through the process and help you with next steps.

If your flight is delayed please contact GatwickConnects and do not rebook any flights before you've spoken to them as your insurance might become invalid.

Try to give the team a call before you depart (if you can) or you can speak to somebody once you've landed at Gatwick. Head straight to the GatwickConnects desk in the baggage reclaim hall where the team will take care of you and get you rebooked to an alternative flight.

If your new flight results in a long wait time then GatwickConnects will provide you with food/drinks and accommodation.

Helpful hints...

We're only able to sell Economy Classic at the moment. We're working on making the other classes available as soon as we can.

We don't currently have a frequent flyer agreement with easyJet in place so you won't be able to earn miles on the easyJet segment. However, you will earn miles on the Virgin Atlantic flight. 

We don't currently have a frequent flyer agreement with easyJet in place so you won't be able to redeem miles on the easyJet flight. 

If you need to make any changes to your booking please contact GatwickConnects first, otherwise your protection insurance might be at risk.

To select your seat on your Virgin Atlantic leg please log into My booking. For your easyJet flight you will need to wait until your check in window opens. 

Don't panic, this is expected. Even though you're making one booking - each company will charge you individually. The 3 transactions are simply a break down of the total cost.
