Virgin Atlantic to cease flying between Dubai and London Heathrow

Virgin Atlantic will withdraw flights between Dubai and London Heathrow from March 31, 2019.

After conducting a thorough review of its network, the airline says that it has made the difficult decision to stop flying between Dubai and London “due to a combination of external factors which mean it is no longer economically viable”.

Shai Weiss, Chief Commercial Officer for Virgin Atlantic, said: “It‘s never an easy decision to withdraw a route, and we’d like to thank our customers and dedicated team in Dubai for their loyalty over the last 12 years. We’ll continue to offer daily flights between Dubai and London Heathrow until 31 March 2019, and will be sad to say goodbye to this fantastic city.”

Until March 31 2019, Virgin Atlantic will continue to operate its daily flights between Dubai and London Heathrow as planned, with new bookings still available until the last flight. Virgin Holidays will continue to provide holiday packages to Dubai.
