Virgin’s transatlantic joint-business partner Delta Air Lines is operating a limited schedule from London Heathrow to Atlanta and Detroit and has not yet confirmed when it will reinstate more routes.
As ever, these plans are subject to change at short notice. Passengers must also ensure they comply with country entry restrictions. Details of these for UK based passengers are available from the Foreign Office.
Virgin is, for the foreseeable future, operating at London Heathrow Terminal 2. In common with other airlines, it has adapted its airport procedures and in-flight service and details of this are available at Virgin Atlantic.
