Virgin Atlantic will operate temporarily from Terminal 2 at Heathrow, due to HAL’s terminal consolidation. Virgin Atlantic will return to its much-loved home at London Heathrow Terminal 3 when demand at Heathrow grows, enabling Terminal 3 to reopen

We’ve taken the difficult decision to delay the restart of our London Heathrow to Orlando and Manchester to Orlando services, which will now resume on 24th August 2020. We’ll also resume seasonal services from Glasgow and Belfast to Orlando for selected dates in summer 2021.

For customers impacted by these changes, there’s no need to contact us right now, we’ll be in touch with more information within the next 10 days on what these changes mean and to discuss options, including rebooking on to a flight from 24th August onwards. Any customers who made their bookings through a third party or travel agent, should contact them to discuss options.

We will continue to monitor our network on an ongoing basis and expect more flights from London Heathrow and Manchester to resume in September and October 2020.
