The airline’s 45th year of operating in the US-UK market coincides with Delta Air Lines returns to Gatwick Airport. After a nearly 15-year break, Delta Air Lines is restarting daily nonstop service between New York (JFK) and London Gatwick Airport (LGW).
The airline’s accessibility to London via the city’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports is improved by the reopening of this connection between New York and London’s second-largest airport.
The airline located in Atlanta intends to operate the service using recently refurbished Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. These planes can carry 226 passengers, including 165 in the Main Cabin and 26 in Delta One Suites, which have a capacity of 35 Comfort+ seats.
According to Nicolas Ferri, VP of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India at Delta, “Delta started flying to the UK at Gatwick 45 years ago this month. So it is appropriate that we are restarting our operations from Gatwick to the United States.” Further, Customers will find enhanced service and thoughtful extras on board to enhance their travel experience.
Delta’s flights to New York resumed, and according to Stewart Wingate, CEO of London Gatwick Airport, this will increase the airport’s connectivity within the US.
The ability to offer travellers in London and the South East the chance to travel with Delta Air Lines flight service between Gatwick and New York City is excellent, providing not just a larger choice but also more competition, said Wingate.
Delta Returns to Gatwick
Seat-back entertainment screens, in-seat USB charging ports, and free mobile texting. All this will be available to every passenger on board. By the end of 2024, there will also be free WiFi available.
The New York (JFK) and London Gatwick Airport (LGW) route was initially announced earlier this year. As a component of a larger network expansion that included nonstop service to Auckland, New Zealand. As well as other European destinations from several Delta U.S. hubs.
The new connection between New York and London will fly once daily. Leaving JFK at 23:35 and arriving at Gatwick, London, midday the next day. It will then fly back to New York at 14:10, arriving around 17:00.
