A new route from Manchester to Delhi is being launched by Virgin Atlantic for the first time from 26 October. Flights will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays using an A330-200, returning Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Coupled with the airline’s double-daily service from Heathrow to Delhi and daily service from Heathrow to Mumbai, the airline will now offer more than 600,000 seats per year between the UK and India.
In addition, Virgin is adding a daily Heathrow – Cape Town service, complementing the existing service to Johannesburg. Increased flying between Manchester and Barbados and Heathrow and Havana will also offer customers more choice.
Chief commercial officer Juha Jarvinen said: “This year is an exciting one of continued growth for Virgin Atlantic and increasing our presence out of Manchester is a huge focus for us.
“We’re delighted to announce the new service flying three times a week from Manchester to Delhi, additional capacity into Barbados from Manchester as well as a Clubhouse opening this summer.
“This year will also see Flybe transform into Virgin Connect, and we’re excited to offer customers flying from the north 47 daily flights throughout the UK, Ireland and across Europe.”
