More flights for Delta and Virgin

Gatwick will become Delta’s seventh transatlantic destination served nonstop from Boston when flights begin on 22 May 2020.  One day before, Virgin Atlantic will launch a daily flight to New York-JFK from Gatwick. Together the airlines will offer up to four daily flights from the south London airport to three US cities next summer.

Delta’s return to Gatwick will mark the first time the airlines have both served the airport since their partnership began in 2014.  UK-bound customers flying from the northeast United States will benefit from up to 18 daily flights between Boston and New York to the two London airports, plus Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

“We’re excited to return to London Gatwick, which is where we launched our first UK destination over 40 years ago as well as Manchester, and continue to grow our international network from Boston,” said Roberto Ioriatti, Delta’s vice president Transatlantic. “Together with Virgin Atlantic, we are strengthening our presence in the northeast US and in London, offering customers a greater choice of destinations combined with the excellent service they can expect from our airlines.”

Upper Class and Delta One customers, plus with Gold Card and Delta SkyMiles Platinum members can continue enjoy access to the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses at both Heathrow and Gatwick.
