Virgin Atlantic will launch three-times weekly flights between Manchester and Delhi this October.

VS318 will depart Manchester at 1640 on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, landing the following morning at 0605. The return, VS319, will depart at 0810 on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, landing at 1210.

The route begins on October 26, with flights on sale from March 3.

Flights will be operated by an A330-200 with economy, premium economy and business class cabins.

The airline’s four A330-200 aircraft initially entered service in 2018 without Virgin Atlantic seats and interiors, but a retrofit of the fleet has now been completed.

The Manchester-Delhi route will join Virgin’s double daily flights between Heathrow and Delhi, and its recently-relaunched daily flights between Heathrow and Mumbai.

India’s Jet Airways launched Manchester-Mumbai flights in November 2018, but cancelled them in March 2019 ahead of its collapse in April 2019.

Virgin has been focusing on increasing its presence at Manchester Airport, which is currently undergoing a £1 billion expansion that will see it grow by 50 per cent. The first major phase of the project – including a rebuilt Terminal 2 plus new roads and a car park – is set to open to the public this summer.

Virgin has announced plans to open its first Clubhouse at the airport this summer.

Timings are good for connections at MAN end, but if the flight departs MAN 3 hours and leaves DEL 3 hrs later, they can get Indian connections (especially from Amritsar and Chandigarh) on the return, assuming they have a tie up with AI or Vistara. Realistically they cannot get many to connect at MAN with only 3 times a week service so this flight is primarily O & D and a few connections within UK
