The four-times-a-week winter service will operate from 28 October 2023
Virgin Atlantic has announced that it will relaunch services between London Heathrow and Dubai, as the airline continues to grow its network.
The four-times-a-week flight will operate from 28 October on the airline’s 787-9 aircraft featuring 31 Upper Class, 35 Premium and 192 Economy Delight, Classic and Light seats.
The airline aims to capture the increased UK consumer demand for premium winter sun getaways, so the service will run to March and customers can book flights in advance from 7 June 2023.
The service will offer a consistent long-haul onboard experience for those customers connecting from Dubai via London Heathrow to destinations throughout North America across both the Virgin Atlantic and Delta networks, including New York, Seattle, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
In addition to flights, Virgin Atlantic Holidays offers a portfolio of more than 30 properties throughout Dubai and the region.
Virgin Atlantic vice president of Network & Alliances Rikke Christensen commented: “We’ve long wanted to return to this incredible city when the time was right and this year presents the perfect opportunity.
"Dubai will complement our growing collection of premium sun destinations, bolstered by The Maldives and Turks and Caicos later this year, alongside our new services between Manchester and Las Vegas in summer 2024.”
