Rediscover the many benefits of our extended joint venture
The world is getting back to business. Connections, convenience and choice are more important than ever to travellers. So, it’s the perfect time to reintroduce you to the incredible partnership of Virgin Atlantic, Delta Air Lines, KLM and Air France.
This partnership gives customers the most convenient flight schedules and connections, a combined network of over 375 destinations, plus plenty of loyalty benefits through our shared passion for creating a seamless travel experience.
Whichever airline they choose to fly, customers can be sure they’ll enjoy award-winning service and top-tier premium products in all cabins. Virgin Atlantic has a spectacular new aircraft joining their fleet – the A330neo - and Air France is rolling out a stunning new Business Class suite. KLM has introduced a new Premium Economy cabin with great Premium Comfort seats while an enhanced Delta Premium Select cabin will be available on all transatlantic flights from the UK this winter.
From the UK, we offer departures from 17 airports with up to 106 daily flights to North America, including 14 non-stop routes from Edinburgh, Heathrow and Manchester or convenient connections via Amsterdam and Paris. This year we added new routes to Austin and Dallas, Texas and there are more new services on the horizon. Next summer we’ll add flights from Heathrow and Paris to Los Angeles, from Heathrow to Tampa, from Edinburgh to Atlanta and, for the first time in 15 years, from Gatwick to New York-JFK.
When it comes to business traveller benefits, there’s so much to be excited about. We have joint corporate agreements and combinable fares across carriers. SME companies are also rewarded through our joint corporate loyalty programme bluebiz. Frequent Flyers can earn miles and tier points across all four airlines – giving them the opportunity to enjoy more rewards and reach higher status more quickly. Eligible elite members are also recognised on all flights with priority check in. And, with Virgin Atlantic joining the SkyTeam family in 2023, there will be even more benefits offered for your customers.
We can’t wait to welcome you and your customers onboard soon.
