Delta and Virgin Atlantic Airways will offer customers new routes across Atlantic. The introduction of Delta’s nonstop service from New York-JFK to Edinburgh and Salt Lake City to London begin in May 2016. The routes add to the value that the Delta-Virgin Atlantic joint venture provides customers through premier service with the benefits of an aligned route network offering more frequencies, competitive fares and harmonized service.

“For the second summer in a row, Delta will be launching new routes that give customers more options when flying between the United States and the U.K.,” said Nat Pieper, Delta’s Senior Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Delta and Virgin Atlantic are committed to offering an extensive network on the trans-Atlantic, and our new flights from London and Edinburgh will offer more connections to destinations throughout the U.S. and beyond.”

Starting May 1, 2016, Salt Lake City will be Delta’s eighth U.S. destination from Heathrow and the only nonstop service between London and the Mountain West. As the largest airline operating in Salt Lake City, Delta offers connections to more than 50 destinations throughout the West and into Canada.

For the first time, Salt Lake City passengers will have direct access to London.

Daily nonstop service between New York-JFK and Edinburgh will begin on May 26, 2016, offering customers in the UK up to 60 convenient onward connections from JFK. Delta’s new service from Scotland joins Virgin Atlantic’s three times weekly summer seasonal service from Glasgow to Orlando. 

Passengers traveling in the Delta One cabin on both the Salt Lake City to Heathrow and New York-JFK to Edinburgh flights will enjoy full flat-bed seats and a range of personalized dining options. Additionally, all passengers will have access to on-demand in-flight entertainment and Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the aircraft.
