On the 1st June 2015, Virgin Atlantic will launch direct flights to Detroit, the birthplace of Motown, Madonna and the motor car.

Flying daily from London Heathrow, we will be the only British airline to fly direct to this fascinating city. Customers can also take advantage of Delta Air Lines’ services and connect onwards to other US cities including New Orleans, St Louis, Indianapolis, Salt Lake City and Nashville.
