Decade of Caribbean flights for Virgin Atlantic

Just the flight Virgin Atlantic has marked the tenth anniversary of launching its flights to the Caribbean.

The airline began serving the island region in September 1998 when it launched flights from Gatwick Airport to Antigua, Barbados and St Lucia.

A number of other new flights followed, including connections to Grenada and Tobago in 2003, Montego Bay in 2006 and Kingston last year.

Virgin Atlantic's Caribbean services proved so popular that it extended them to the north of England, with flights from Manchester Airport to Barbados launched in November 2005, followed by a service to St Lucia the next year.
