United Airlines has inaugurated its new nonstop service between its hub at Washington Dulles International Airport and Murtala Muhammed International Airport with the arrival of the first flight into Lagos today.

The flight is operated with state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring 28 United Polaris business class lie-flat seats, 21 United Premium Plus premium economy seats, 36 Economy PlusSM seats and 158 standard economy class seats.

A water cannon salute marked the arrival of United flight UA612 with Oluwatomi Bola-Sadipe, United’s Country Sales Manager Nigeria, Victoria Shin-Aba, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Regional General Manager and Claire Pierangelo, U.S. Consul General welcoming the first arriving United customers at Murtala Muhammed

International Airport.

The new service service will provide a key gateway between Lagos and Washington D.C. as well as easy one-stop connections to almost 80 destinations across the Americas, including Houston and Chicago.

United customers in Nigeria can book flights online by visiting, visiting the United Ticket Office (3rd Floor Aviation Plaza, 3 Kodesho Street, Ikeja, Lagos) Monday - contacting United Reservations on 07000334444 or their travel agent.

The new service marks United’s return to Nigeria, which the airline previously served up until 2016.

With the three weekly flights, United is the first and only airline serving Washington, D.C. nonstop from Lagos.

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