Companies moving goods between the U.S. and the U.K. will soon see more options open up. Delta Airlines (NYSE: DAL) and Virgin Atlantic are both increasing flights between the two continents beginning in the summer of 2020, and Delta will have a presence at Gatwick Airport for the first time in over five years.
This expanded flight network will provide cargo customers better choices when it comes to trans-Atlantic capacity, routes and frequencies, according to a joint media release from the airlines.
Gatwick will become Delta’s seventh trans-Atlantic destination served nonstop from Boston when flights begin next May. During the same month, Virgin Atlantic will launch a daily flight to New York-JFK from Gatwick.
“Delta’s return to Gatwick will mark the first time the airlines have both served the airport since their partnership began in 2014,” according to the media release. “Customers shipping cargo to the U.K. from the northeastern United States will benefit from a choice of up to 18 daily flights between Boston and New York and two London airports, plus Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow.”
Beginning next spring, both Delta and Virgin Atlantic will increase capacity between New York-JFK and Heathrow Airport. This effort will provide more flight options between the trade hubs, including Delta’s first daytime flight from New York-JFK to Heathrow.Read More
