BET­TER TO­GETHER

Vir­gin Aus­tralia and Delta Air Lines strengthen ties to of­fer cus­tomers more code­share op­tions when fly­ing to North Amer­ica.

In 2017, Vir­gin Aus­tralia and its North Amer­i­can joint ven­ture part­ner Delta Air Lines are en­joy­ing a stronger than ever part­ner­ship. The two air­lines cel­e­brated the launch of Vir­gin Aus­tralia’s Mel­bourne–Los An­ge­les ser­vice in April, and fol­lowed the new flight in May with Delta Air Lines’ re­lo­ca­tion to Ter­mi­nals 2 and 3 at LAX. The re­lo­ca­tion means Vir­gin Aus­tralia and Delta’s op­er­a­tions are phys­i­cally closer to­gether at the air­port, cre­at­ing a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence for cus­tomers con­nect­ing from one air­line to the other.

The move came just in time — in Au­gust, Vir­gin Aus­tralia ex­panded its code­share des­ti­na­tions with Delta to in­clude the North Amer­i­can air­line’s flights from Los An­ge­les to Den­ver (DEN), Dal­las-Fort Worth (DFW), Tucson (TUS), Aspen (ASE), San An­to­nio (SAT), Washington Na­tional (DCA) and Van­cou­ver (YVR). Th­ese ex­cit­ing, one-stop des­ti­na­tions make the United States and Canada more ac­ces­si­ble than ever, whether do­ing busi­ness in Washington, D.C., or en­joy­ing the beauty of the moun­tains in Den­ver or Aspen.

With the new des­ti­na­tions, Delta and Vir­gin Aus­tralia now of­fer 25 weekly flights be­tween Aus­tralia and the United States, and the abil­ity to con­nect from 46 des­ti­na­tions across Aus­tralia and New Zealand to 232 des­ti­na­tions in the Amer­i­cas. Vir­gin Aus­tralia’s busi­ness-class ex­pe­ri­ence, The Busi­ness, and Delta’s pre­mium cabin, Delta One, distin­guish the air­lines as the only Trans-Pa­cific air­line al­liance to con­sis­tently of­fer for­ward-fac­ing, fully flat bed seats with di­rect aisle ac­cess in busi­ness class.

The air­lines’ col­lec­tive fo­cus on in­vest­ing in the cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­vid­ing the most com­pre­hen­sive route net­work guar­an­tees that Vir­gin Aus­tralia and Delta will be the strong­est part­ner­ship across the Pa­cific for years to come.
