Virgin to add flights in Nov.

BRIDGETOWN -- British carrier Virgin Atlantic Airways said it will increase its service to Barbados from three to five flights a week starting Nov. 1.

The airline said the increase is in response to growing demand for Barbados. Separately, in response to increased demand for Upper Class seats to the Caribbean, the airline said it will double the number of Upper Class seats from 14 to 28 on aircraft to all Caribbean destinations.

Virgin Atlantic operates six nonstop flights a week to three Caribbean destinations -- St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbados -- from Gatwick.

The two new Barbados flights will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays.
