Virgin Atlantic and Flybe extend their codeshare flights to Scotland


Travellers in India can now book flights with Virgin Atlantic to Scotland. Customers will be able to book tickets to travel from Delhi with Virgin Atlantic and connect onto Flybe flights at London Heathrow to Aberdeen or Edinburgh.

Commenting on the development, Vincent Hodder, Chief Revenue Officer, Flybe, said, “Flybe is especially delighted that this extension of our valued codeshare partnership with Virgin will enable us to better serve Scottish travellers and global visitors, further realising our ambition of being a ‘One Stop to the World’ for the UK regions. We greatly look forward to cementing our commitment to Scotland and welcoming, even more, Virgin passengers on board our new Heathrow flights to Aberdeen and Edinburgh when they start at the end of March.”

Nick J Parker, Head of Middle East, Africa and India (MEAI), Virgin Atlantic, commented, “Our partnership with Flybe will help bring beautiful Scotland a little closer to Delhi. Thanks to new daily connections via London Heathrow. Our customers can fly to London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic and transfer seamlessly onto their Flybe flight to Edinburgh or Aberdeen to explore Scotland’s famous scenery, history and culinary delights.”

The new flights are available for travel from March 26, 2017 and will allow customers to seamlessly connect between Virgin Atlantic and Flybe.
