Delta has relaunched daily nonstop flights between London Heathrow and Los Angeles for the first time since 2015, with the first flight departing on March 26.
The service is operated by the carrier’s A330-900neo, which features the Delta One suites with private sliding doors and fully-flat beds.
Flights depart London Heathrow at 1620, arriving into LAX at 1950. Return flights are scheduled to leave Los Angeles at 2025 and arrive into London Heathrow at 1450.
The resumed service is one of eight direct routes the airline now flies from Heathrow to the US, with the others being Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York JFK, Salt Lake City and Seattle.
“As we expand our global network, Delta is building our presence at London Heathrow offering more nonstop choice to our customers with the restart of service to Los Angeles,” said Nicolas Ferri, Delta’s vice president Europe, Middle East, Africa & India.
Delta’s Los Angeles flight complements transatlantic partner Virgin Atlantic’s existing three daily services from London Heathrow to LAX. Together the airlines will offer up to 278 weekly services between the UK and US this summer.
