Fri, 08 May, 2009

London Gatwick Airport customers will be able to go to a new Caribbean destination later this year.

Virgin Atlantic is to provide the weekly route to Puerto Rico from November 7th.

The flights will fly via Antigua and will go from different times and dates depending on the month.

From their launch to March 27th 2010 the service will take to the skies from the capital's facility at 09:25 and land in San Juan at 16:05 BST.

They will operate on a Boeing 747-400 aircraft and will have a range of seating class options available.

Chief executive at the firm Steve Ridgway commented that the destination was "colourful" and "diverse".

"From the stunning beaches and tropical rainforests to the charming colonial city of San Juan, there is something for every holidaymaker," he said.

Those wishing to use airport parking facilities at the London hub are advised it is located 28 miles between London and Brighton.
