As part of an extended partnership with Air France, US carrier Delta Air Lines will launch a number of new non-stop transatlantic flights from next year.

One new connection will be launched from Atlanta to London Heathrow, which will be operated on a daily basis from March 29th.

Three more routes will be opened from New York JFK to Heathrow, Paris Orly and Lyon, starting on March 29th, June 2nd and July 15th respectively.

Air France and Delta's joint venture, signed today, means that they will share revenues and costs on transatlantic routes and is expected to eventually boost customer travel choices.

Upon signing the agreement, Delta CEO Richard Anderson said: "This is a win for Delta, Air France and for the loyal base of customers who fly our airlines across the Atlantic each year."

He added: "Together, we will be able to offer passengers more flight options and frequencies, better schedules, new opportunities to earn more miles to take advantage of an enlarged network with seamless booking."
