Virgin Atlantic launches Cancun flights from London Gatwick Airport

  • Virgin Atlantic expanded its Caribbean network as the British long-haul airline launched its first route to Mexico on 12 June. From its London Gatwick (LGW) base, the airline now flies twice-weekly to Cancun (CUN) with 451-seat 747-400 aircraft. Competition comes from British Airways’ three flights a week as well as leisure airlines Thomson Airways’ five and Thomas Cook’s two weekly operations. Sir Richard Branson, President of Virgin Atlantic, commented: “Cancun is one of the top five long-haul leisure destinations for UK travellers, so we are delighted to be able to add this route to network.  This route launch further cements our position as the UK’s leading long haul leisure airline.”
