Virgin Atlantic has announced a new addition to their daily flights between London Heathrow and Los Angeles. Beginning May 2017, they will now fly three times a day, a new service that adds to the currently existing 1010 and 1525 departures from Heathrow, and the 1545 and 2055 services from Los Angeles.

In the connection with Virgin's partnership with Delta Airlines, the two airlines will be co-located in LAX, Terminal 2 by May 2017, adding immense convenience to customers who want to connect flights to over 20 Delta destinations, including Hawaii, Mexico and other parts of the US.

This new flight addition will play a major role during the peak summer travel season, offering their customers greater choices of flights. This new flight will leave Heathrow at 1300, landing in Los Angeles at 1610, with the return flight leaving Los Angeles by 1830 and returning back to London at 1255 the following day.

All three services from this route will be utilized by a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft-the most efficient aircraft of Virgin Atlantic. It offers three cabin classes that include a fully flat bed and aisle access seats in Upper Class.

Erik Varwijk, executive vice president, commercial, Virgin Atlantic, said: "We have been flying between LA and London for over 25 years and this additional service will offer our customers even more choice in flight and connection times between these two fast-paced cities.

"All three flights on this route will be operated by our brand new Boeing 787-9 aircraft, giving our customers the most optimal Virgin Atlantic experience, including on-board Wi-Fi and power at every seat.

"Together with the increased connectivity as part of our joint venture with Delta, we're able to offer our customers the best possible experience when flying between London and Los Angeles."

The joint partnership between Virgin Atlantic and Delta Airlines keep on developing, making sure that both airlines' customers receive a high caliber travel experience, with top customer service the main goal in mind.

According to Businesstraveller.com, the airlines are also now co-located at Heathrow, since Delta's consolidation at Heathrow T3 earlier this year.
