Virgin Atlantic to Start Daily Delhi-London-New York Flights

British airline, Virgin Atlantic announced the launch of daily flights service from India connecting Delhi with New York. The flights will operate with a quick connection at London Heathrow from October 28, 2012.
The flights are sure to benefit British, American and Indian passengers with convenient connections and higher availability of seats on flights to India, UK and USA’s most important cities which are popular centres for business and leisure.
The new flights to New York’s JFK complement the airline’s existing same day connection from Delhi to Newark via London Heathrow, which turned out to be a major success. Sources reveal that it has remained consistently a top choice on the Delhi-Newark route this year with over 50 per cent growth year-on-year in terms of traffic out of India.
The increasing traffic on the Newark route indicates that most passengers prefer to take a connection for unwinding and indulging in some duty-free shopping.
With the launch of new flights between India’s capital and USA’s financial hub, the airline hopes to repeat the success story of its existing connection between two cities.
As per the airline’s flight schedule, a daily flight from Delhi would arrive at London Heathrow shortly before 6 p.m. (local time) and will depart for JFK at 7:25 p.m. (local time). At around 11:30 p.m. (local time), the flight will arrive in JFK.
India is one of the key markets for Virgin Atlantic and the airline is targeting to connect more passengers from India’s capital to JFK and Newark.
