Great minds fly alike

Virgin Atlantic and Delta cabin crew

Great news...

The beginnings of our new partnership with Delta Air Lines have started taking shape, with our new codeshare agreement, (coinciding with Delta acquiring a 49% stake in Virgin Atlantic Airways).  What it means for you is we can now offer easy connections from the UK to 68 new North American gateways.

We also welcome the decision by the US Department Of Transport, to approve the joint venture between both airlines by granting antitrust immunity, on routes between North America and the UK.  Reaching this exciting milestone means, we can offer more convenient, aligned schedules and a much broader network to our passengers.

In other news, Delta will be joining us at Heathrow Terminal 3 for all flights departing to Boston, New York and Seattle, starting April 2, 2014. It's just another benefit of our new partnership, ensuring your journey is more convenient and seamless than ever before.

Direct flights between London and Atlanta

We're also pleased to announce that from 26th October 2014, Virgin Atlantic will be operating one of Delta's three direct flights from London Heathrow to Atlanta.  This means we'll be able to connect our travellers to furthermore US, Canadian, Mexican and Caribbean networks.  More about our new route to Atlanta.

Flying 9 times daily between London and New York

Keeping our customers at the forefront of our minds, we have now launched a new schedule for travel between New York and London, offering a total 9 daily nonstop flights

7 daily flights will depart between London Heathrow and New York JFK, whilst 2 daily flights will run between London Heathrow and Newark.  Our new schedule will begin operating from 30 March 2014.

Combined, we will operate a total of 32 daily nonstop flights, between North America and the UK, of which 24 flights will operate between London Heathrow and popular US destinations, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta and Washington.
