Virgin Atlantic announces new codeshares, Israel return

Monday, 03 Jun, 2024 0

Virgin Atlantic has announced two new airline codeshare partnerships.

The airline also announced plans to restart Israel flights from 5 September 2024.

As part of that route restart, it will codeshare with EL AL.

Virgin Tel Aviv flights resume for the first time since 11 October 2023.

Flights will operate daily on Airbus A330 aircraft, offering connections through Heathrow to 14 US destinations operated by Virgin Atlantic and partner Delta Air Lines.

A new airline codeshare partnership with EL AL will offer more connections between the UK, US and Israel.

The two airlines will place codes on their respective London Heathrow and Tel Aviv services, allowing customers more flexibility and frequencies with up to four daily Israel flights.

The partnership will offer reciprocal earn and redemption opportunities, as well as premium customer recognition and tier benefits for frequent flyers.

Also, a new airline codeshare with fellow SkyTeam member Saudia has launched, providing connectivity between Saudi Arabia and Virgin Atlantic destinations.

The first phase of the agreement is now live, and allows Virgin Atlantic customers travelling on flights from the US to book onward connections through London Heathrow and Manchester on Saudia’s services to Jeddah and Riyadh.

Opportunities to earn Virgin Points and Tier Points, alongside Virgin Points redemptions, have been in place since March 2023, with online redemptions launched last month.

Saudia’s AlFursan members can earn and redeem their points on Virgin Atlantic flights.

Virgin also welcomed newest SkyTeam partner SAS.

“We’re delighted to launch airline codeshares with our SkyTeam partners at SAS and Saudia and our return to Tel Aviv will be welcome news for customers,” said Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer, Virgin Atlantic.

Virgin Atlantic joined SkyTeam in March 2023 as the alliance’s first UK member airline.
