Following the granting of slots for Delta to serve Boston and Miami from Heathrow next year, the carrier has now released timings for the new services.
Delta was last week awarded slots freed up by the BA-American Airlines transatlantic tie-up (see online news November 11), and the airline has now confirmed the schedules for its twice-daily service to Boston, and daily flights to Miami.
Flights to Boston will depart Heathrow at 1030 and 1335, arriving at 1320 and 1625, with the return legs leaving at 1850 and 2240, landing back in London at 0645 and 1035 the next day.
The daily Miami service will leave Heathrow at 0940, arriving at 1505, with the return leg departing at 1730 and landing at 0730 the next day.
The new routes start on March 27, 2011, and mean Delta will offer a total of ten flights per day from Heathrow, with three daily departures to New York, two “peak-day” services to Atlanta and Detroit, and a daily flight to Minneapolis.
The new services will be operated as part of the Delta/Air France/KLM/Alitalia transatlantic joint venture, and will be served with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.
