Virgin Atlantic Airways will next spring terminate its service from London Gatwick to Nassau in the Bahamas owing to lack of demand.

The weekly flight will be axed on 19 March, less than two years after its inauguration.

“We are really disappointed to have to cease our direct operations to Nassau as the current demand is not quite sufficient to warrant direct services to the island,” says Virgin Atlantic commercial director Willy Boulter.

A Virgin Atlantic spokeswoman says the aircraft will be redeployed to increase the carrier’s Manchester-Orlando service to daily.
