Delta Air Lines Marks 10 Years of Nonstop Service to Nigeria


Delta Air Lines on Monday marked the 10th anniversary of its nonstop service between Lagos, Nigeria and Atlanta, USA. The airline commenced service to Nigeria on 4 December, 2007.

Since its launch ten years ago, Delta has operated 6,300 flights between Nigeria and the United States, carrying 1.12 million passengers between the two countries.

From 26 March, 2018, Delta will operate daily service between Lagos and the United States, with four weekly services to Atlanta complemented by three new weekly flights to New York-JFK.

Both routes will be operated using A330-200 aircraft, recently introduced onto the Lagos-Atlanta route, adding more seats and offering an enhanced on-board experience.

In addition to fully flat-bed seats in Delta One, Wi-Fi access and free-mobile messaging, Delta’s customers enjoy regionally inspired cuisine as well as select Nollywood movies.

Delta remains the only U.S. airline to fly nonstop between Nigeria and the United States after United Airlines suspended its non-stop Houston-Lagos service in 2016.

Lagos forms part of Delta’s Africa network which also includes service to Accra, Ghana; Dakar, Senegal; and Johannesburg, South Africa.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue
