Virgin Atlantic Returns to Heathrow Terminal 3

Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines are returning to their home in Terminal 3, which has been closed for over a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic on 15th July.

The airlines are looking forward to safely welcoming customers back onto their home turf, which has been missed by many, with their signature flair, seamless check-in, and award-winning facilities. 

Virgin Atlantic destinations including Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, and Israel are all classified as “Green” on the Government’s travel list, which means customers are not required to self-isolate on their return.

Delta is operating nonstop services between Heathrow and both Atlanta and New York-JFK, however, U.S. entry restrictions for non-essential travelers from the U.K. still apply.

All customers will receive the famous Virgin Atlantic welcome in the airline’s dedicated area in the terminal, with flexible check-in options and warm hospitality. 

Virgin Atlantic Upper Class and Flying Club Gold members as well as Delta’s eligible customers can once again enjoy access to the airline’s award-winning Clubhouse, Revivals lounge, and Upper-Class Wing.

In the Clubhouse, they’ll enjoy complimentary a la carte menus featuring five-star dining, smaller tapas dishes, meats, and cheeses from the deli and afternoon tea. A wide selection of wine, cocktails, and soft drinks are also available to be enjoyed across the many Clubhouse relaxation spaces, such as the library or restaurant, or outside, plane spotting on the roof terrace. 

In a bid to further increase flexibility, customers now have multiple choices about how they order their food and drinks.

To ensure a seamless experience, customers can order from a web-based ordering system via a QR code at their seats. The app will feature the whole menu and customers can simply place their order which will be delivered to their seat wherever they are sitting.

Customers will still have the option to use a single-use printed menu and order via the Clubhouse’s waiter service.
