Delta Air Lines will operate from London Heathrow Airport's Terminal 3 from 14 September. 

The move to the terminal, which also hosts Virgin Atlantic, aims to help customers manage their travel plans and any last-minute changes.

Delta will move its Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Philadelphia flights from Terminal 4 to Terminal 3, where its services to New York-JFK, Boston and Seattle currently operate. 

"Having our Heathrow service under one roof is crucial to delivering a synched-up, more convenient service."

Delta senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa Nat Pieper said:  "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.

"This enhances the travel experience for customers flying from Heathrow, one of the world's most important international gateways, and marks a major milestone in our joint venture."

Delta will operate 11 daily flights to eight US cities from Terminal 3.
