Delta to join Virgin in T3

In a move which it says will enhance seamless service for customers flying between the UK and the US, Delta Air Lines is to operate exclusively from Heathrow’s Terminal 3 from 14 September.

The airline points out the decision means it and Virgin Atlantic will now operate from the same place, making it easier for passengers to manage their travel plans – including any last-minute flight changes.   

Delta is transferring 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.

“Our joint venture with Virgin Atlantic is all about making it easy for our customers to connect between our airlines and having our Heathrow service under one roof is crucial to delivering a synched-up, more convenient service,” said regional senior vice-president Nat Pieper.

Delta will operate 11 daily flights to eight US cities nonstop from Terminal 3. The two airlines’ summer schedule includes up to 40 daily nonstops between North America and the UK, of which 28 operate between Heathrow and the US.
