Delta Air Lines has announced plans to operate from Gatwick in 2023, for the first time in 15 years.

The carrier will also add expand services from Heathrow and Edinburgh next year in order to ‘meet demand’ for travel between the UK and the US.

Delta had been due to restart flights from Gatwick in 2020 but had to cancel plans because of the pandemic.

Delta will operate up to 15 daily flights between the UK and US in the summer 2023 schedule, including a daily service from Gatwick to New York JFK airport, which starts on 11 April 2023.

It will also fly daily between Heathrow and Los Angeles and five times a week between Edinburgh and Atlanta. The new Edinburgh-Atlanta route is in addition to its existing flights from the airport to JFK and Boston.

Together with partner Virgin Atlantic, Delta will offer up to 40 daily flights between the UK and the US in summer 2023.

Delta Vice President Europe, Middle East, Africa and India Nicolas Ferri said: “This summer saw extremely high demand for travel and by adding more routes and extra frequencies, Delta alongside its partner Virgin Atlantic will provide more options for convenient travel next year.”
