Tourism British Columbia (Tourism BC) has announced that Virgin Atlantic will operate a summer service to Vancouver.

The flight will depart from Heathrow four times weekly (on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) from May 24 to October 27, increasing capacity from the UK to Vancouver by 10%.

The new flight is expected to boost arrivals to BC, with more than 174,000 Brits predicted to explore the province between May and October next year. Currently, 70% of UK visitors to BC travel during these months, and with the additional Virgin service, there will be 32 flights to Vancouver each week.
