Virgin Atlantic option to New York

Starting Oct 28, Virgin Atlantic will connect Delhi to New York’s John F Kennedy airport via London Heathrow.

The new service to JFK will complement the airline’s existing same day connection from Delhi to Newark via London Heathrow. The new service is being launched to build upon the airline’s strong performance to Newark from Delhi and to capitalize on the growing passenger numbers to New York and the US

 “India is definitely one of our key markets and along with launching Mumbai later this year we are really looking forward to connecting more passengers to JFK and Newark out of Delhi.  The schedule has been designed to enable passengers from India’s capital to connect quickly to New York. Our increasing share to Newark shows that passengers prefer breaking the journey in half, stretching their legs and indulging in some duty-free shopping. We're looking forward to making this new service to JFK a success,”  Stephen King, General Manager- India, Virgin Atlantic Airways said.
Passengers arriving from Delhi land at Heathrow shortly before 6PM and will depart for JFK at 7:25 PM before landing in New York around 11:30PM local time. On their return, passengers will depart JFK at 8:40 AM and land into Heathrow at 7:40 PM local time. They will then be able to smoothly connect to the popular 10 PM departure out of London to Delhi.

Virgin Atlantic has seen over 50% year on year growth in traffic out of India, says a statement.

  1. Hi! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?
    I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal every day.
