Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic Airways have added six new services in their summer schedule as part of their new their transatlantic partnership. Virgin Atlantic is launching a second daily service between Los Angeles and Heathrow and the combined service with Delta will offer three daily flights between the two cities. There is also a seasonal second-daily Virgin Atlantic service between Atlanta and Heathrow and a second service between San Francisco and London Heathrow that will operate five days a week over the summer. Delta will also fly one of the Newark-to-London Heathrow services previously operated by Virgin Atlantic while Virgin Atlantic will take over Delta’s Atlanta-to-Manchester service.

Further joint-venture services to be introduced later in the summer include a new daily Delta service between Philadelphia and Heathrow from 26 April, a new daily Delta service between New York-JFK and Manchester starting May 21, a new daily Virgin Atlantic service between Heathrow and Detroit from 1 June and seasonal Virgin services between Orlando and Belfast (June and July), and Las Vegas to Glasgow (September and October).
