P&O adds extra Caribbean flights in response to growing demand


P&O Cruises has added eight additional regional flights to its Caribbean fly-cruise packages between November 2025 and February 2026 in response to growing demand from customers

The additional flights from Cardiff, Newcastle and Glasgow bring the number of regional departures to 24 across next winter’s season.

Airports already available include Belfast, Bournemouth, Bristol, Edinburgh, Stansted and Manchester, flying to Barbados for 14-night Caribbean holidays on board Britannia and Arvia.

Guests can sail onboard Arvia for a 14-night Caribbean fly-cruise from Cardiff, departing Bridgetown on 21 November 2025, calling at Fort de France, Basseterre, Tortola, St. Maarten, Antigua, Grenada and Castries from £1,799pp including flights.

Earlier this year P&O Cruises named Norse Atlantic Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Tui as its airline partners for its winter 2024/25 fly-cruise season.

It came after the line decided not to extend its partnership with Maltese carrier Maleth Aero. Carnival UK and P&O president Paul Ludlow previously apologised for “flight issues” during its last winter season.

Between November 2024 and March 2025, Norse Atlantic will operate a weekly Friday flight from Manchester to Barbados and Saturday flights from Gatwick and Manchester to Antigua and Barbados on alternating weekly schedule.

Longstanding partner Tui will operate Friday and Saturday flights to Barbados from Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as regional flights from Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast, Bristol, Bournemouth, Glasgow and Newcastle on selected dates.
