Virgin Atlantic Cargo welcomes revamp of Delta partnership services

Virgin Atlantic Cargo has welcomed a re-organisation of transatlantic services as part of its partnership with Delta Air Lines.
Yesterday, the two airlines announced a range of transatlantic service changes with a new four-times-a-week direct Heathrow-Portland flight, the first between the city and London, grabbing the headlines.
Virgin will also take over the operation of existing Delta flights between Manchester and New York JFK and Heathrow-Seattle.
John Lloyd senior vice president, cargo, Virgin Atlantic, said: “Seattle is a top 15 import/export market for cargo between the UK and US and is an important and growing market for many of our customers so we hope to earn a healthy share of this business.
“By increasing our commitment to Manchester, we will also be reducing the need for customers in the North of England and Scotland to have to truck cargo to London, which is going to save them time and money.
“We’re making it even easier for them to do business with Virgin Atlantic, and the same is true for customers in New York where there is strong demand for cargo capacity to Manchester.”
Other changes include Delta taking over Virgin services between Heathrow and Detroit, in addition to its existing service, and Heathrow-Atlanta, although Virgin will continue to operate a daily service on the route.
