Virgin Atlantic and Delta announce joint trans-Atlantic schedule

by Richa 13. November 2013 02:35

Virgin Atlantic Airways and Delta Air Lines have announced their plans to operate flights on trans-Atlantic routes jointly during the summer of 2014. The announcement has come as part of the two airlines’ trans-Atlantic joint-venture partnership. The partnership is likely to boost competitiveness and provide opportunity to the customers to get cheap tickets. Media reports said that the two airlines have decided to combine their slots at London Heathrow Airport offering maximum convenience to the customers, particularly business travelers.

Significant changes are on the cards as Virgin Atlantic Airways and Delta Air Lines start implementing their joint schedule plans. Delta Air Lines has indicated that it will be shifting its Heathrow flights to and from many important business markets to Terminal 3, which is presently the main base for Virgin Atlantic Airways. Delta Air Lines is currently operating Heathrow flights out of Terminal 4. According to the plans, flights to and from Seattle, New York JFK and Boston would be moved to Terminal 3. Apart from this, the business class passengers traveling by Delta Air Lines will now be able to access the “Clubhouse” lounge being operated by Virgin Atlantic Airways in Terminal 3.

Virgin Atlantic Airways has also planned some significant schedule changes. The airline will now be shifting its London Heathrow-Newark flight from a late afternoon departure to a morning departure. The airline hopes that by doing so it will be able to particularly attract business travelers. Virgin Atlantic Airways will also be shifting its Boston-London Heathrow schedule. The airline plans to reschedule the U.S.-bound flight that will depart London Heathrow two hours later than in the existing schedule. The move is aimed at offering more flexibility to the customers of the two airlines, with Delta Air Line’s London Heathrow-Boston service now departing in the morning.
