Redefining transatlantic travel

Virgin Atlantic is delighted to be working in partnership with Delta Air Lines®. We call it our ‘smarter partnership’ because together we offer more than simply competitive fares and a large network.

  • Virgin Atlantic carries sports equipment of charge.*
  • Free of charge seat selection in Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy, Upper Class and all Delta cabins.
  • Refreshing, undisturbed sleep thanks to fully flat beds with direct aisle access in Virgin Atlantic Upper Class and Delta One™**

Intuitive, personal service

We look after you as individuals: hospitality is part of the culture of both of our airlines.

The latest and greatest entertainment
