Business Traveler (USA) - - UPFRONT -

Be­gin­ning Sept. 14, Delta Air Lines has shifted all its op­er­a­tions to Lon­don Heathrow’s Ter­mi­nal 3 for bet­ter align­ment with joint ven­ture part­ner Vir­gin At­lantic. This will im­pact five routes that cur­rently op­er­ate out of Ter­mi­nal 4 to the fol­low­ing US des­ti­na­tions: At­lanta, Detroit, Min­neapo­lis, Salt Lake City and Philadel­phia.

“Our joint ven­ture with Vir­gin At­lantic is all about mak­ing it easy for our cus­tomers to con­nect be­tween our air­lines and hav­ing our Heathrow ser­vice un­der one roof is cru­cial to de­liv­er­ing a synched-up, more con­ve­nient ser­vice,”said Nat Pieper, Delta’s Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent - Europe, Mid­dle East and Africa.

De­tails are avail­able at Lufthansa Ger­man Air­lines has be­come the first Euro­pean air car­rier to par­tic­i­pate in the US Trans­porta­tion Se­cu­rity Ad­min­is­tra­tion’s Pre-Check pro­gram.

Pas­sen­gers en­rolled in Pre-Check are el­i­gi­ble to be di­rected to an ex­pe­dited screen­ing lane, al­low­ing them to keep on shoes, belts and light out­er­wear, as well as leave laptops and 3-1-1 com­pli­ant bags in carry-on bag­gage. Pre-Check in­for­ma­tion is em­bed­ded in the pas­sen­ger’s board­ing pass bar­code and the TSA Pre-Check printed on it. When TSA scans the bar­code at the se­cu­rity check­point, the pas­sen­ger may be re­ferred to an ex­pe­dited screen­ing lane.

Cur­rently, US cit­i­zens, dual cit­i­zens, and law­ful per­ma­nent res­i­dents are el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply to the TSA Pre-Check Pro­gram, as well as mem­bers of US Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion’s Trusted Trav­eler pro­grams such as NEXUS for Cana­dian Cit­i­zens, as well as Global En­try which is cur­rently avail­able for eight na­tion­al­i­ties in­clud­ing Ger­many.
