If you fly Delta in and out of London Heathrow, there’s some news for you as some your terminals have changed.
If you fly between London and Boston New York San Francisco and your upcoming Seattle service you be moving to Heathrow Terminal 3, co-loctating with Virgin Atlantic.

Heathrow Terminal 3 is in the Central Terminal Area of Heathrow, whilst Terminal 4 is on the far site of the airport area located near the southern perimeter.

It’s part of the joint ownership/partnership that Delta and Virgin Atlantic have been working on, to deliver benefits to flyers.
Delta routes that have moved routes to Heathrow Terminal 3:
- New York-JFK
Delta and Virgin Atlantic are cooperating on Transatlantic flights, with a coordinated timetable between London and New York, and have recently commenced service to Seattle.
Combined, Virgin Atlantic and Delta offer 32 non-stop flights daily between North America and United Kingdom.
If you buy flying BusinessElite with Delta, you will have the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse as your lounge in Heathrow Terminal 3 – one of the better lounges around to enjoy before a flight.
Heathrow Terminal 3 offers easy connections into London for the shorter rides on the train or tube, and better connectivity for coaches and local buses (in fact, a lot of my travels start at Terminal 3 these days).
Alas if you’re flying to the following destinations:
- Atlanta International Airport
- Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport
- Minneapolis St.Paul
You will still be flying to and from Heathrow Terminal 4. Sadly, capacity is still limited at Heathrow T3….
