Delta and Virgin Atlantic mark 10 years of transatlantic partnership


Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic are marking a decade in partnership, the two carriers having collaborated to enhance customer benefits between the US and UK since 2014.

Since the partnership was forged, the two airlines have grown their shared network, adding more routes and flights between the UK and the US, and transporting nearly 40 million customers across the Atlantic.

In 2020, the partnership grew stronger through the expanded joint venture with Air France-KLM. Delta claims that this made the union the leading joint venture across the Transatlantic.

Matteo Curcio, Deltaโ€™s Senior Vice President – Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India said in a press statement: โ€œSince we brought together our two iconic brands, the partnership has gone from strength to strength thanks to a shared focus on customer service and making flying fun.” 

“Back in 2014, the partnership deal was a game changer for Delta enabling us to up competition on the most popular business routes between London Heathrow and the U.S., offering customers greater choice, while providing Virgin Atlantic unparalleled access to Deltaโ€™s network across North America,โ€ Curcio added.

โ€œWe said at the time: โ€˜great minds fly alikeโ€™ and thatโ€™s as true today as it was back then,” Juha Jarvinen, External Vice President – Commercial for Virgin Atlantic said. 

“Our two award-winning airlines have flown millions of customers across the Atlantic and driven forward meaningful change in service excellence and responsible travel over the last decade to deliver the best travel experience for our customers,โ€ Jarvinen concluded.ย ย ย
