Airline aiming to give customers some winter sun
Virgin Atlantic is offering quarantine free Caribbean holidays under its new Escape Pass initiative.
Under the new plan, holidaymakers choose the length of stay, hotel rating, board basis and aircraft cabin. Customers will be told of their destination and holiday details two weeks before departure.
Juha Jarvinen, chief commercial officer at Virgin Atlantic said: “We know customers are keen to get away on their next adventure after a difficult year. Top of the list is an idyllic holiday to the Caribbean, where the Covid-19 pandemic has been managed extremely well, allowing holiday makers to enjoy sun, sea and beaches safely. The Escape Pass has been created to take all the stress and uncertainty out of booking that dream Caribbean trip. Through this Atol protected package, we will ensure customers are sent to a beautiful island with the peace of mind that they won’t need to quarantine on their return.”
Countries on offer include Barbados, Antigua, Grenada and Tobago, with plans to include Jamaica and other Caribbean islands as they are added to the UK’s travel corridor list.
“We have implemented a comprehensive set of measures including enhanced cleaning of our aircraft, individual health packs for all our customers with medical grade face masks, and an improved service which minimises contact between our cabin crew and customers. Our teams have been working hard to ensure our customers can Fly Safe and Fly Well on their next trip and we look forward to safely welcoming our customers on board soon.”
The Escape package is available to book through the Virgin Atlantic Holidays call centre at 0344 472 9499. Packages start from £759pp for a 7-night Caribbean holiday with direct flights, a 3V hotel on room only basis with transfers included (based on two people sharing).
