Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) said it has relocated some of its key services to join Virgin Atlantic Airways at Heathrow Terminal 3.
The move comes as both airlines start flying their new and aligned summer schedules that offer customers more choice and flexibility while reducing onward transit times.
Delta said it has moved its arrival and departure terminal for several important business markets including its London to New York-JFK, London to Boston, and new London to Seattle services to Heathrow´s Terminal 3.
The new routes include Delta´s West Coast service between Seattle and London Heathrow, which commenced flying on March 30, 2014. And in co-operation with Virgin Atlantic, Delta will also operate a second daily service between London Heathrow and Detroit Metropolitan Airport effective June 2, 2014. The service will be particularly appealing to corporate customers needing an early morning arrival into London while offering more schedule choice for customers between London and the US Midwest.
Delta Air Lines serves nearly 165 million customers each year. Its website is at www.delta.com, Twitter @Delta, Google.com/+Delta, Facebook.com/delta and Delta´s blog takingoff.delta.com.
Virgin Atlantic flies to 34 destinations worldwide, including locations across North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Far East and Australia. In the winter of 2012, Virgin Atlantic announced a joint venture with Delta Air Lines, creating an expanded trans-Atlantic route network and enhancing competition between the UK and North America. The two airlines now codeshare across 108 routes, offering passengers seamless connections to 66 destinations.
