Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic Airways will offer customers two new routes between the UK and US with the introduction of Delta’s non-stop service from Salt Lake City to London Heathrow and New York-JFK to Edinburgh, Scotland, beginning in May 2016.
“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 UK,” 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 US and beyond.”
Starting 1 May, 2016, Salt Lake City will be Delta’s eighth US 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 Western US and into Canada.
Daily nonstop service between New York-JFK and Edinburgh will begin on 26 May, 2016, offering customers in the UK up to 60 onward connections from JFK. Delta’s new service from Scotland’s capital city joins Virgin Atlantic’s three times weekly summer seasonal service from Glasgow to Orlando.
