Virgin Atlantic makes changes to its network

568

Virgin Atlantic has reviewed its network and will be making changes to four of its international routes.

The winter seasonal service to Cape Town (South Africa) will operate as planned in winter 2014/15, but will not be renewed the following year. The final London-Cape Town flight will leave Heathrow on 26April 2015, and the final flight from Cape Town will depart the following day. 

This, along with the withdrawal of operations from London Heathrow to Tokyo (Japan) and Mumbai (India) on 31January 2015, as well as the cessation of the summer seasonal service to Vancouver (Canada) on 11October, will make room for additional services to other more in-demand destinations.

The proposed changes include a new daily service from London Heathrow to Detroit (USA), and additional services from London Heathrow to New York JFK and Los Angeles. Additional summer services will be added to Atlanta and San Francisco. There will also be an additional daily service during the winter season from London Heathrow to Miami.

A transfer of operations with joint venture partner Delta Air Lines will see Virgin Atlantic fly a daily service between Manchester and Atlanta, and Delta will fly one of Virgin’s existing London Heathrow to Newark services.

In addition, Delta will launch a new daily service between Manchester and New York JFK in the summer of 2015.
