Virgin Atlantic to connect Delhi & Mumbai to Manchester

Virgin Atlantic will start services from Delhi ((January) and Mumbai (December) to Manchester as the airline ramps up flying from its home in the north of England.   
 
Flying three times a week from Mumbai to Manchester beginning in December and twice weekly from Delhi starting in January, these new services will go on sale on 20th October and will complement the airline’s existing services from Mumbai and Delhi to London Heathrow. 

Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer, Virgin Atlantic, said, “We’re delighted to launch new flying from our home in the north in Manchester. India boasts the largest foreign-born population in the UK and we’re anticipating that post Covid-19, the demand to travel home to visit loved ones will increase. Following the re-launch of services from Heathrow to Mumbai and Delhi in September 2020, these new services from Manchester represent our continued investment in India. Both Mumbai and Delhi are popular year-round destinations, and we look forward to welcoming travellers from the North and Midlands on board as demand for leisure and business travel gradually increases to the region.’’

Alex McEwan, Country Manager – India at Virgin Atlantic, added, ‘‘We are excited to welcome passengers onboard Virgin Atlantic services from Delhi and Mumbai to Manchester for the very first time. Manchester is our home in the North of England and is positioned as a fantastic hub for onward travel. We are the only airline operating these routes to Manchester direct and passengers can enjoy the same fantastic customer service that we have offered from India to Heathrow for the past 20 years. We will operate one of our newest and most fuel efficient aircraft, the 787 Dreamliner.’’
