Virgin Atlantic set to offer new routes to Maldives and Turks & Caicos next year

Virgin Atlantic has announced that in 2023 it will begin flying to the idyllic islands of the Maldives as well as Turks & Caicos.

The routes will offer Brits an opportunity to escape to their very own slice of utopia and explore the most beautiful beaches and finest snorkelling and scuba diving found anywhere in the world. 

With crystal white sands and sheltered lagoons, the Maldives redefines paradise, in what is undoubtedly one of the most idyllic holiday destinations, offering luxurious relaxation and adventure.

Travellers looking to treat themselves can experience world-class diving, surfing, fishing, kayaking and with over 1,000 coral islands to enjoy, there’s no shortage of things to see or do.

Elsewhere, the stunning islands of the Turks & Caicos offer some of the most pristine white sand beaches, surrounded by the world’s clearest turquoise waters.


Boasting an expansive barrier reef, home to vibrant coral, dolphins, turtles, stingrays and more, the islands make for a breath-taking playground for snorkelling and diving.

This new destination is the latest addition to our Caribbean portfolio which follows new flying to the Bahamas in December, St Vincent and the Grenadines in October and our highly anticipated return to St Lucia. 

Virgin Atlantic will launch a winter seasonal three-times weekly service to the Maldives from London Heathrow, which will go on sale on November 30th, before commencing on October 22nd.

The airline will also launch a year-round twice weekly service to the Turks & Caicos which will go on sale from January 11th, for flights starting on November 15th next year from London Heathrow.

Both routes will be operated on a Boeing 787-9.
