Virgin Atlantic & its US partner Delta Airlines will be bringing their renowned hospitality & style to London with the opening of a themed lounge at the O2 arena later this summer.

NY-LON, as it will be known, will honour the airlines’ important New York – London route and will combine the best of both brands to deliver a unique experience to O2 visitors. The aviation-themed bar will be managed on behalf of the airlines by leading hospitality brand Levy Restaurants UK and menu offerings will highlight both New York and London inspired cuisines, as well as aviation themed cocktails. The NY-LON lounge will be open seven days a week offering a luxurious bar with a difference. Members of the airlines’ frequent flyer programmes, Flying Club and SkyMiles, will benefit from a range of discounts and special offers.

Reuben Arnold, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Customer Experience at Virgin Atlantic, commented: “We’ve created NY-LON as a celebration of our trans-Atlantic network which provides customers with a seamless, more enjoyable way to fly between the U.K. and U.S. Our lounge bar will offer customers a brand-new experience at the O2 that showcases our airlines’ world-class service.”

Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Marketing added: “The iconic cities of New York and London are at the heart of everything we do.  Opening NY-LON is the next exciting step in our partnership and we look forward to helping travellers enjoy the Delta-Virgin Atlantic brand of hospitality for which we’re famous when they next visit The O2.”

The NY-LON will open at the end of July. For more information click here
