Two airlines that use Gatwick Airport have decided to collaborate on transatlantic travel.
Virgin Atlantic and JetBlue Airways this week said that they have begun a new transatlantic interline partnership.
Since March 22nd travellers have been able to easily travel from Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport, Manchester Airport and Glasgow Airport with Virgin Atlantic to US destinations, then onto domestic flights run by JetBlue to cities such as Baltimore and Chicago.
"With its focus on cultivating a distinctive brand and creating a customer experience that travellers prefer, Virgin Atlantic shares a similar philosophy with JetBlue. We look forward to welcoming their customers to the growing JetBlue network and to giving ours more options to the UK," Scott Resnick, JetBlue's director of airline partnerships, said.
As part of the agreement, passengers can buy single itineraries that include travel on Virgin Atlantic and JetBlue.
In addition, a recent poll by Skyscanner found that travellers thought that Virgin Atlantic, Emirates and British Airways were the best for reliability.
