Virgin Atlantic Cargo is adding a new service from London Heathrow to San Juan, commencing on the 24th November.
It is the first time that the airline has operated cargo flying to Puerto Rico and it will be serving the destination twice weekly on a Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
Dominic Kennedy, managing director at Virgin Atlantic Cargo, said: “We are delighted to welcome San Juan to our network, and we are excited about the new growth opportunities this presents for our customers. Over 11 million kilogrammes of cargo move between Puerto Rico and Europe each month and we are confident Virgin Atlantic Cargo will gain a healthy share of this market.
“Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Virgin Atlantic Cargo has played a vital role keeping global supply chains running and transporting essential goods around the world. We are continually innovating, bringing in new destinations in line with demand to expand our cargo only offering.”
