Now open: Virgin and Delta's LHR export facility
As part of the first phase of Virgin Atlantic Cargo and Delta Cargo’s expansion programme to double cargo handling capacity at London Heathrow, both carriers have opened a state-of-the-art export facility to future-proof the joint venture’s growth plans in the UK market. This is supported by new technologies that will enhance business continuity, as well as deliver significant improvements and transparency in the customer delivery experience.
Rafael Figueroa, Delta Cargo MD – operations and customer experience: "These world-class expanded facilities position us for success in this important market. The technology enhancements and the transparency across the export operation, with increased temperature-controlled facilities, are designed to make it easier for our customers to work with both airlines."
