Delta acquires slots at London-Heathrow

1 min read

The FINANCIAL — Delta has acquired six slots at London-Heathrow Airport from its joint venture partners Air France and KLM, slot pairs that Delta had previously leased from Air France and KLM.

By taking ownership of the slots, Delta will enhance its ability to provide long-term continuity and stability on the route network operated from London Heathrow with joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic Airways, according to Delta.

Delta and Virgin jointly operate 23 nonstop flights between Heathrow and the U.S. today, providing significant competition and choice for customers in one of the world’s most important travel markets, one which had previously been dominated by a single airline partnership.
