Due to ongoing travel restrictions, we may make further revisions. We will continue to steadily increase passenger flying throughout the second half of 2020, with a further, gradual recovery through 2021 in line with customer demand.
As a reminder, IATA accredited Travel Agents are required to follow IATA standards for Flight Disruption which includes asking each passenger whether they wish to have their contact details provided to Virgin Atlantic, and other airlines in the itinerary, so that we are able to contact them in the event of flight disruption.
