Delta braces for summer season


The start of the IATA summer season has brought a number of new and returning destinations to Delta Air Lines’ schedule

Not only is Delta launching 28 seasonal services to the United States from destinations including Copenhagen, Istanbul, Prague and Reykjavik, but the airline is also further expanding its partnership with Virgin Atlantic Airways.

There will be six additional services from the UK, comprising Delta’s new London to Newark, London to Philadelphia and Manchester to New York-JFK flights. Virgin Atlantic, meanwhile, has new daily flights from Manchester to Atlanta, and London to Detroit. The UK airline will also offer extra services over the peak summer months from London to Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco, plus weekly flights from Belfast to Orlando and between Glasgow and Las Vegas.

Overall, the partnership will offer up to 39 return trans-Atlantic flights a day between the UK and 15 destinations across North America, including 10 daily flights between New York and London Heathrow, with eight daily departures from New York-JFK and two departures from Newark.
