Despite the challenges faced by airlines worldwide, Virgin Atlantic recently announced that they will be resuming flights between Cape Town and Heathrow, London in November.

In an interview with Times Live’s Unathi Nkanjeni, Virgin Atlantic CEO, Shai Weiss, said: “While the past few months have been difficult, we are confident about what the future holds.  We are excited to welcome our travellers back onboard soon and are taking every possible precaution to ensure our customers have maximum peace of mind, as the travel restrictions are lifted”.

Other airlines and travel service providers have already adjusted the way they ensure the safety of all customers. 

The Virgin Atlantic team has also retained their slot portfolio at Gatwick airport, to enable the airline to return and service clients from this location as soon as demand recovers. Weiss also indicated that any travellers that have existing travel bookings from Gatwick will be accommodated with a flight departing from Heathrow.

So it seems that pretty soon we’ll be able to head back to London and back to travel with Virgin Atlantic.
