London, UK—Detroit will become Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s eleventh destination in North America on June 1st with the start of daily flights to and from London Heathrow. The daily Airbus A330 flight will offer over 16 tonnes of capacity in both directions.

The new route increases the choice of US destinations for Virgin Atlantic’s customers and joins Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Francisco and Washington.

Detroit is Virgin Atlantic’s second new US destination in the last eight months, following the addition of Atlanta to the airline’s network in October. A second daily London-Atlanta service started at the end of March as well as a new daily non-stop flight connecting Manchester and Atlanta. Virgin Atlantic’s summer 2015 schedule has also seen the introduction of additional frequencies on its New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas routes.
