Virgin Atlantic & Delta Air Lines to launch bar at O2

Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines, the official airline partners of The O2, will bring the renowned hospitality they offer at 30,000 feet to the UK’s most exciting entertainment venue this summer, with the launch of NY-LON Lounge Bar at the end of July.

Honouring the airlines’ important New York to London route, the aviation-themed lounge bar will combine the best of both brands to deliver a unique experience to O2 visitors.

The 6,000-sq ft space has capacity for up to 400 guests and features a large bar and seating area, plus a 'secret space' for meetings, private dining or small events.

NY-LON will be managed by leading hospitality brand, Levy Restaurants UK and menu offerings will highlight both US and British cuisine, 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.”
