The partnership between Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic has announced two more routes between the US and the UK that will start next May. These links will open up the options available to passengers and provide more convenience for those traveling across the Atlantic.
From May 2016, Delta will operate two new non-stop services. One will connect New York’s JFK airport with Edinburgh, Scotland, while the other will connect Salt Lake City with London Heathrow.
The service from Salt Lake City will be the first non-stop connection between the city and London and will mark the airline’s eighth US route out of Heathrow. Passengers arriving in Salt Lake City will be able to continue on to more than 50 destinations in the west of the US and Canada through Delta.
Those using the New York to Edinburgh service can choose to book cheap apartments and spend some time experiencing the historic capital of Scotland. When traveling into New York, UK and European travelers will be able to connect with flights to around 60 airports in the US.
Passengers traveling on Delta have access to Wi-Fi throughout the aircraft as well as a comprehensive in-flight entertainment system. Those choosing the Delta One cabin will have their own fully flat seats and a choice of dining options.
The Delta-Virgin Atlantic partnership was launched at the start of 2014. It provides customers with an enhanced network across the Atlantic with more than 200 destinations available within the US.
