Last month Delta announced a raft of new and increased services between the UK and the US for 2020, in partnership with Virgin Atlantic.
These include a new daily Virgin Atlantic service between Gatwick and JFK on May 21, 2020, followed by a Delta-operated Gatwick-Boston route starting on May 22.
As reported Delta will also add a new daytime flight between New York JFK and Heathrow, and a peak summer service between Boston and Manchester.
The carrier has also confirmed that its seasonal service between Salt Lake City and London Heathrow will move to year-round from December.
Commenting on the news Joe Esposito, senior vice president – network planning, said:
“Consumers are looking for more opportunities to visit Europe, so we’ve added more destinations and more flight times.
“In addition to offering the most comprehensive schedule of any US carrier across the Atlantic, we’ve invested significantly in our aircraft, service and products for customers traveling between the US and Europe.”
