Delta Takes Flight from Glasgow to New York and Beyond   

Strengthens Scotland-U.S. network in partnership with Virgin Atlantic

Delta has launched its new nonstop service from Glasgow to New York-JFK, offering greater travel choice between Scotland and the U.S. Operated daily throughout the summer, the airline’s first-ever Glasgow route will provide convenient connections to more than 60 destinations throughout the U.S. and beyond via Delta’s New York hub.  

Meanwhile, to further strengthen the transatlantic network offered jointly from Scotland, Delta’s partner Virgin Atlantic will operate an extended seasonal service from Glasgow to Orlando this year.  The popular route is operating up to four times a week until November, boosting capacity to the Florida resort by nearly 20% percent this year. Virgin Atlantic is also celebrating its 10th anniversary in Glasgow, having launched its first service from the airport to Orlando on 23 June, 2007.

Delta’s Glasgow route complements the airline’s existing daily seasonal service between Edinburgh and New York-JFK, launched last year. Combined, Delta and Virgin Atlantic will offer seats for almost 9,000 customers to fly between Scotland and the United States each week during the peak travel months. All flights offer fully flat-bed seats in Delta One and Virgin Upper Class and on-demand, in-seat entertainment for every passenger on the aircraft.

“Linking Glasgow nonstop to New York is an important step in strengthening our joint network to offer our Scottish customers greater travel choice to more destinations across the U.S. including Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles,” said Frank Jahangir, Delta’s vice president Sales and Affairs. “The new flight will also boost inbound tourism by flying as many as 37,000 visitors to and from Glasgow this summer, providing more opportunities for American tourists to discover this exciting city for themselves.”

“Glasgow is one of five new routes we are launching in Europe today,” said Dwight James, Delta’s senior vice president Transatlantic. “Delta is committed to building a network in Europe and beyond that supports our customers’ business and leisure travel needs.”
