Delta and Virgin Atlantic have announced that the two airlines will operate exclusively from London Heathrow Airport's Terminal 3, effective September 14. The move is aimed at making it easier for customers to manage their travel plans, including any last-minute flight changes, the two airlines said.
Delta will transfer its Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Philadelphia flights from Terminal 4 to join its services to New York-JFK, Boston and Seattle that already operate from Terminal 3.
The joint venture will make it easier for Delta and Virgin Atlantic customers to connect between the two airlines, said Nat Pieper, Delta’s senior vice president – Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
In total, Delta will operate 11 daily flights to eight U.S. cities nonstop from Terminal 3. The two airlines' summer schedule includes up to 40 daily nonstop flights between North America and the UK, of which, 28 operate between London Heathrow and the U.S.
