Delta Airlines continues to expand its presence at London Heathrow with the launch of a new route from the airport to Philadelphia on 8 April 2015, the airline confirmed today.
The flight will operate from Terminal 4, and be operated by a Boeing 757 aircraft in a two class (economy and business class) configuration.
The route will also be offered as a codeshare with its transatlantic joint-venture partner Virgin Atlantic.

Philadelphia is currently the exclusive domain of British Airways and its Oneworld partners American Airlines and US Airways.
Currently, BA and US Airways operate the route thrice daily. From 29 March 2015, American Airlines will add a fourth flight, with a daytime Westbound departure from Philadelphia – always popular with passengers seeking to avoid short red-eye flights.
