Virgin Atlantic has announced that it will be expanding its service from London Heathrow to New York JFK.
The airline currently flies three times per day to New York JFK, and twice-daily to Newark, but from 28 October the airline will add a fourth daily service between the two airports, leaving Heathrow at 7pm and arriving into New York at 10pm local time.
The return service will leave at 8am from New York JFK Terminal 4 and arrive into London Heathrow at 8pm local time.
According to the airline, the new flights “will give connecting passengers greater flexibility, with timings to give a seamless connection onto other Virgin Atlantic routes including Delhi, Dubai, and many of its African destinations.”
If you’re tempted to take Virgin’s new flight, what things must you do in the Big Apple?
Take in a Broadway show
Nothing says New York like the famed theatre strip that is Broadway. Choose from a variety of current shows including The Lion King, Sister Act, Mamma Mia and Spider-Man.
Indulge your artistic side
If even you aren’t a culture vulture, visiting one of the city’s famous art galleries or museums is the perfect way to spend a leisurely day.
Choose from one of the following venues: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Academy Museum & School, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Jewish Museum.
Sample the best fast food stateside
Grab a hot dog from one of the many street-side ventures and pile it high with your favourite toppings. For a wood-fired pizza that will have you licking your lips, head to Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Katz’s Deli is also a must for those who love their sandwiches bursting to seams with pastrami.
