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.
